Item6133: Mail-Address of LDAP-User is not displayed (solved)

% USERINFO{ format="Email: $emails }% does not show the Email-Address of a LDAP-User.

After sucessfully configuring LdapContrib to map Users from our LDAP I noticed that the E-Mail-addresses where not available in TWiki.

I tried to track that error down and noticed the following:

The Module Users::LdapUserMapping does not contain a getEmails -Method but calls the empty function in it's abstract baseclass instead.

At the other side there is a function called getEmails in the Module Users::LdapUser which is not called --- at least not when the above mentioned %USERINFO ... variable is expanded.

After I copied the function getEmails from Users::LdapUser to Users::LdapUserMapping the emails are delivered just fine. I don't dare to remove this function from Users::LdapUser as I don't know if it is used in this module.

Thanks Klaus for the bug report and fix. This should go into the next release.
