Hi,

We use LDAP account and this warning makes no sens whatsoever :

 

Both 22.10.11 and 22.10.15 (at least) are concerned.

Hi,

I reported this issue two months ago now. Not only I got no answer but today I can see that the problem is still there in 22.10.19 (eight revisions later !) although I can read in the release note:

 

Centreon Web

22.10.19

Release date: February 14, 2024

Bug fixes

  • [CLAPI] Removed password expiration policy for LDAP authentication.


I wonder what’s your priorities to establish your roadmap. Seeing the software bloated with service like pendo.io along with unfixed bugs like this one is seriously concerning. And I’m sorry  if what I  say  is hurting your feelings but “one does not build a castle on sand”. I’m too sorry I can’t provide patches to fix all the issues I encounter (and take the time to report, what seems to be useless most of the time, but  all those bugs do not help me to be able to free some.

I also regret you think relying mostly on an internal tracker instead of a publicly available one is a good thing but. I suppose you have good reasons.  And well… https://github.com/centreon/centreon/issues/923 it’s not just  a two months old bug, but a one year.

Hi @Stéphane, Centreon 22.10.x is in P2 support phase so only blocking issue or security are fixed, as you seen in associated release notes.

However, this bug is more a cosmetic issue than a real bug and allow users using LDAP to connect to Centreon.

Finally, this bug have been fixe in Centreon web 23.04.2 under “[Authentication] Removed the password expiration policy for LDAP authentication.”

Regards,

Thx for the answer. It may be cosmetic but I had users who contacted me  for this and I had to make a few checks to be sure it was actually only cosmetic… I don’t know what could be an “unreal” bug and cosmetic ones have some incidence on user experience. But this one is minor for sure, I thought only new functionalities were exclude, but OK. We have to upgrade to 23.10 soon anyway.
Have a nice day.
