I cannot recall if this was discussed in the past.
Users and Groups panel:
Tested only with local AD.
In theory, I don't see an issue with this until you create a nest group loop (watch the server grind to a halt when this occurs).
They both don't make any sense and should be forbidden!
Bad. A lot.
Bad * bad * bad = cube-bad.
Yeah - I didn't read the original question properly but the 2nd half of my comments remain the same - creating nested group loop is a bad thing
Our UI is so powerful that permits magic things like those! I agree with the "cube-bad" definition @pike
I don't think that lack of controls could be... so powerful.
@dnutan, do you want to open a bug?
I'm not sure this is a bug, see this commit:
AD supports nested groups, which AFAIK is used internally for "domain admins" and "administrators".
Removing this function is just a matter of deleting 3 lines (). Should I proceed?
Having nested groups is ok.
The bug lays in the UI:
At least it wasn't on a local AD the last time I tried.
