"was" a sample application. It was never meant to be supported or used in a
production environment. That being said, it was deprecated well over a year ago, and it
will completely removed in the Fedora 31, RHEL8, and CentOS8. There are no customization
docs on it that I am aware of beside what you already found on the wiki, and I don't
know anyone who still remembers anything about it or how to customize it.
Thanks for responding so quickly. And...... I have a gift for finding apps I need that
are no longer supported :-)
We all have our challenges in life to bear.
I think that you found this application indicates we have an issue where we are
miscommunicating or advertising software that shouldn't be - I think perhaps we should
look into this.
How did you find the gateway and the sample application? What led you to think they were
available (so that we can remove or modify these references)?
Are there any plans to implement a web interface to 389-DS? I ask because we'd like
a way to allow junior members of the team to make accounts without giving them access to
the OS of the server and full control of the 389 console.
There are current discussions within SUSE about initiating this as we require similar. 389
DS has an admin portal via cockpit, but not an ldap self service that most orgs would like
to see. We have had many requests for self-service webui and I think we should supply one
as an upstream project.
I would happily mentor and coordinate if you were interested, but the likely path forward
would be flask + lib389 to enable something like this. As with anything, time is the
barrier to many things and my current time is being put into container development aspects
of the project.
In the mean time, you could use the CLI tools to achieve this for the junior members, but
they also may need some extension to achieve what you would like.
Have a great holiday weekend.
*sigh* no holidays here for me. :)
