For the group management, it is possible to filter out primary groups (which can be many if every user has his/her own primary POSIX group). This filter switch, however, fails to work in GOsa² 2.6.11 (as in Debian squeeze and used for Debian Edu).Please detail why you think that it does not work. There were some misunderstandings of this switch in the past.
The primary groups (to my understanding) are those groups that are used in the 4th field of /etc/passwd entries. On Debian, these groups get created on user creation and they normally bear the same name as the user. Home directories also get create with ownership and groupship for this <username>=<groupname> tuple.
The mass import of GOsa² 2.6 creates posixAccounts and per posixAccount one posixGroup. These groups being created I consider as primary groups.
For a school with 600 students these groups are many in occurrence and they are mostly not needed for system administration (only to grant access to individual homes, which is not a common use case here around). It would be good to be able to hide those in the GOsa²-WebGUI on a Debian Edu system.
I tag this issue as important as it highly reduces usability of GOsa² with Debian Edu for large setups (i.e. schools). I hope to come up with a patch soon... Does anyone know if this issue occurs with GOsa² 2.7.x in Debian sid?2.7 releases do have a revised filtering. There's no filter like that anymore.
Hmmm.... ok... does this mean, that I will not be able to hide these many many groups from the administrator? Any other approach available?
