Issue/Introduction

Error Message :
N/A

There are two users. In the test case JAC/SBB01 and TEST1/SBB01. User JAC/SBB01 has LDAP connection enabled and is not allowed to edit TEST1/SBB01 (in the test scenario he is not allowed to edit any USER object with name TEST1/SBB01):



Log in as JAC/SBB01 and open TEST1/SBB01:


 


As can be seen, it is read only (Save-Button is greyed out) and LDAP connection is not checked for TEST1/SBB01.

Now open the System Overview and right click on TEST1/SBB01, select Activate LDAP connection:



Now open TEST1/SBB01 again. LDAP connection is now checked:


 


I.e. even though JAC/SBB01 is not allowed to edit TEST1/SBB01, it was possible to modify it via Activate LDAP connection in the System Overview.
