I wonder if somebody with experience could enlighten me on these issues regarding
authentication of users.
- is it possible to have LDAP integration simultaneously with local Galaxy users. What I
want to reach is when LDAP integration is working, that I can still add users through the
Galaxy admin interface (users that are not present in the LDAP).
If you run two separate web frontends on the same database it should be possible.
They'd have the same config except that one would have use_remote_user = True and one
wouldn't. I haven't tested this so there might be complications.
- is there a way to transfer all histories, workflows and
visualisation to another user? For example, an existing user receives a new email and
password, and want to transfer all his/her stuff to this new account. Can this be done? I
was thinking about when a user gets transferred to the LDAP, he/she would be able to
transfer all data from the old account to the new account.
The easiest way would be to just change the user's email address in the database.
