I can't confirm it is going to work without negative repercussions - I can only say that I cannot think of any non-obvious problems that would result from doing this. It seems like it is going to be the right thing to do in your case (but no promises :)).
If it works, it would be super awesome if you update the wiki - thanks for taking the time to do that!

Our production server uses Apache to handle external user authentication.
I have now set up a new test server (16.04) which handles external user authentication via LDAP using the auth_conf file. This works nicely when using an empty database (I have managed to solve all last weeks problems).
I have now connected my test server to a copy of the PostgreSQL database used on our production server. I try to log in, and I get:
"This account was created for use with an external authentication method, contact...)
and the login fails.
If I now set external = 'f' in the galaxy_user table, it works
Since manually modifying the database is a bad thing, I just want to double check, whether this is the right way to do it?
If so, I will add a line or two to the wiki
Many thanks for your help Hans-Rudolf
