removing auto-created aliases in kolab-webadmin does not work
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

kolab-webadmin-3.2.15-2.1.el7.kolab_16.noarch

in kolab-webadmin, under users -> user -> contact information, all users get some auto-created aliases. If you want to remove unneeded/unwanted aliases, you click the trashcan, and the alias disappeares. When clicking submit you go back to the main users view, but the aliases are not removed.

expected behaviour:

  • alias is removed

actual behaviour:

  • alias remains

You need to disable the autogenerated secondary_mails in /etc/kolab/kolab.conf.

This is not a bug and should be closed.

I get that you can disable it. But when the records have been created anyway, should they not be removable?

Or is that hard enforced by the setting in kolab.conf ?

Yes. These values are enforced. If they don't exists, kolabd recreates them.
