add ability to pre-populate user accounts from ldap
|Category:||Drivers - Auth|
|Target version:||Release 5.6|
We'd like to be able to pre-create user accounts in the opennebula database from ldap, before the user has signed in. In some cases, the user will never sign in, but we'd like to be able to chown (or ideally, launch, see feature request 4807 for sudo in sunstone) vms to these users without them signing in. (We'd like to have the vms owned by the user for accounting purposes).
This could be a one-time script, or a daemon, to fetch users from ldap; it could optionally take parameters such as groups or OUs to import. (And, they could be added to opennebula groups via the ldap mapping feature already present in opennebula)
