[New: openFATE 313142] YaST support only SSSD for LDAP based authentication
Feature added by: Ralf Haferkamp (rhafer)

Feature #313142, revision 1
Title: YaST support only SSSD for LDAP based authentication

openSUSE Distribution: Unconfirmed
Requester: Mandatory

Requested by: Ralf Haferkamp (rhafer)
Partner organization:

We should remove support for nss_ldap and pam_ldap configuration from the YaST
ldap-client module (note: this is not a request to remove nss_ldap and pam_ldap
from the distribution) and only support SSSD for LDAP based users
authentication. The nss_ldap and pam_ldap packages should still be part of
future distribution to still allow manual setup.

When updating an nss-/pam_ldap based system from an older release it should
stay with nss-/pam_ldap. Upon first startup of yast2-ldap-client it might offer
a migration to sssd.

Business case (Partner benefit): Focussing on a single implementation for LDAP authentication
allows us to provide a cleaner UI and should reduce the complexity of the YaST
ldap-client module considerably. Making it easier to use and maintain.
