[Micronet] students on departmental accounts.

Lucy Greco

Hello:

Ok so the answer was two parts. The student did need to publish there e-mail temporarily. And they were able to unplblush after the fact and stayed connected

The second part of this was that I need to use his uuid not e-mail or cal net id. And he was connected at last. I would like to see this address as it seems not write that students should have to make the choice about publasiseing there information. Everyone has a write to privacy. I did get lots of concern about this off list as well. Thanks Lucy

Could you create a bang account for the student?

In reply to this post by Lucy Greco
The reasoning behind needing to have the email address publicized if you wish to use it to authorize any user is because the scripts which are run on CalMail use an anonymous LDAP bind to CalNet. We use an anonymous bind to ensure that no information which isn't already public is given away. The authorization scripts will fail to find an email address if it is not public. CalNet ID, UID, and "Lastname, Firstname" which are publicly available in the directory, can be used and will be accepted by the authorization scripts.

We will update the current Knowledge Base articles to show this additional information.

Thanks,

Bernie

Funny that for all this (legitimate) concern about privacy, the
original issue stems from a design choice (the use of a non privileged
bind) made to preserve privacy.
