Disable password reset with LDAP auth

modifications

#1

This question has been raised on the other forum, here, but the only solution offered was to modify some lines of code in OC core, which is hardly a solution.

Details:

  • I use LDAP for authentication on OC 9.1.
  • It's against institutional policy to allow an external app to change user passwords.
  • Therefore, I need to disable the reset password feature, and ...
  • disable user's ability to change password on their preferences page.
  • My preference is to replace it with a message and link to the site where user's can reset their password.
  • It seems like this should be a feature built into the LDAP admin section: (1) a checkbox to disable password reset, and (2) a text field to input a custom message.

Great point, if it does not yet exist as a feature request, please open this in the LDAP repo: https://github.com/owncloud/user_ldap/issues after 10.0.3 release we might have a chance to look at that. Right now changing the theme/frontend is the only option. In any case we will not make the password change happen as we don't change it in LDAP.
