Does ownCloud LDAP integration support group display name propegation? The behavior is telling me it does not, but in the hours I've been looking I can't find any documentation on it.
- Create an LDAP group that works with ownCloud configured for LDAP. Ex: org-it for the DN portion, Information Technology for the display name.
- Note that when sharing, the group display name shows up and it also appears in Users page.
- Go into LDAP and change the display name of the group, but leave the DN id attribute unmodified (or internal identifier, obviously). In this case we'll change "Information Technology" to "DevOps".
- After logging in again, or triggering a Cache TTL reset from LDAP settings, note that the display name is un-altered in ownCloud.
It seems like once the ownCloud group is created from the LDAP group display name it's fixed and unchangeable even though it's able to gather membership detail properly. I've yet to actually try this with users and the same test thinking it would probably work, but now I'm no longer sure.
If I had time I'd love to take a stab at implementing a change that could propagate the group display name, but I wanted to verify and understand the expected behavior first. And of course, find time to do such things.
