This originally was sent to the devel list but bounced off because I'm not=
cool enough :) I discussed this with gagatan on freenode a week or so back.
The issue is this- we've seen up an ldap system something like this:
Each of those cluster entries is a groupOfNames object, each containing a l=
of members, such as=20
the problem comes when I create a new cluster, such as =A0 cn=3Dqa_machines
and I have to input 20 or more servers like:
Each one involves me clicking the add attribute star at the top, cycling=20
through the dropdown to members, hitting ok, then hitting the edit button o=
the newly created field, and entering in the data. This is ok for one or tw=
entries, but any more and it's a pain.
It occurred to me- if a member already exists, why not add a new icon to th=
base display- I'm thinking of something along the lines of putting a + righ=
next to members (or whatever field happens to allow multiple values.)=20
Clicking the + would automatically create a new entry on the main display=20
without the need of clicking the "Add attribute" star at the top and going=
through that dialog.=20
The end result is it would make luma quicker to use on day to day managemen=
of this system. It would be useful when adding new users to a group, new cn=
to an ipHost, hosts or commands to a sudoers entry, etc.
Does this sound feasible?
