With our recent Drupal upgrade and it's related ldap integration
module, I've done some more tests with increasing the integration
between Drupal and LDAP. The earlier versions of the module were not
ready for more than simple authentication.
By giving the module access to the LDAP manager role, it can now
allows users to reset their passwords and edit their own attributes.
There is always concern about using the manager role in the
application, but largely because we didn't really understand how it
gets used in Drupal. Now, the password itself does not appear in
cleartext in any form in drupal, though it is stored in the database.
How can we build confidence in the use of this module and approach?
Is it possible to have LDAP users edit their own attributes?
Previously this was not an option, but it would also help reduce the
use of the manager role.
