Case sensitive Groups/Users parent group


#1

Q1. What is the problem that you are trying to solve?
When configuring LDAP sync the items “Users parent group” and “Groups parent group” is checked with case sensitivity. To my understanding many/most/all ldap-objects are case insensitive. For example if i want to only add users in parent group “employees”, it will fail if i write “Employees” in the field although a ldapsearch would yield a match.

Q2 - Who is impacted?
Anyone not knowing the exact case/spelling of the group would have minor inconvenience debugging it.
Or if a group is renamed from like snake-case to camel-case, the filter would stop working.

Q3 - Why is it important and/or urgent?
Not important, but perhaps nice to have.

Q4 - What is your proposed solution? (optional)
Make search/query/comparison of the fields ignore case.

Q5. Community support
People can vote for this idea to show traction:

  • :ok_woman: Must have: this is critical for me to have this
  • :raising_hand_woman: Should have: this is important for me to have this
  • :tipping_hand_woman: Could have: this could be nice to have
  • :no_good_woman: Won’t have: we should not schedule this (explain why)
