please find some ideas for a redesign of webYaST`s "Users" module

a good idea to store all the jquery stuff in my Export...)

Do you have any other topics concerning users module GUI?

I am unsure about the use case of the Users Module in WebYaST.

Well, we're requested to deliver it. But I share your view ;-)

How many users do you expect to be managed through it?

How many users will be accessing an appliance ?
Depends on what "accessing an appliance" means here. If you talk about
accessing it through the WebYaST interface, I guess we are talking about
a very limited set of users.
If we talk about the users that access the appliance by other means
depeding on the appliance the number can be quite large I guess :).

Should it support LDAP based users like yast2-users?
No. The current scope explicitly limited to /etc/passwd.
Are there any plans to extend that to external sources at some point? I
can think of use cases where it might make perfect sense to allow WebYaST
Users being managed in a Directory. The access policies might fit there
as well.

If yes, then it might need to handle quite a large amount of users
(thousands?) e.g. by providing functionality to search for a
specific users and/or to filter the list by certain criteria instead
of always showing all available users.

If it is only intended for managing local /etc/passwd users such
things are probably not needed.
