LDAP: Linking of NOT existing users to groups

Question asked by webdesigner on Aug 13, 2008
Hello,

can I avoid linking of NOT existing user-authorities to groups by LDAP-Group synchronization?

I'am using Alfresco 2.2.0 and "createMissingPeople" is set to FALSE.

My ActiveDirectory-Groups contain some users, that don't exist in Alfresco. It means, these users haven't been imported into Alfresco with LDAP user synchonization (as designed).

After GROUP import I found these users in the property:
{http://www.alfresco.org/model/user/1.0}members
of created Alfresco groups.

It forces "User does not exist and could not be created" if I try to step into these groups in admin console:

org.alfresco.service.cmr.security.NoSuchPersonException: User does not exist and could not be created: Testusername.firstname
