How can i add add a new user without syncing the users from the LDAP? I want to add new users and want them to use their LDAP credentials, but i don't want to import all of the users. I have synced the Netherlands users but want to just add the US users because there are far too many to import. I could do this before in 2.4 by adding the user and leaving their password field blank. This allowed the users to log in, however when i try to do the same thing in 2.5 it tells me that i must have a password field filled in. Is there a way round this?
Yes, generate a password at random. It will not be used by since the user will be authenticated against LDAP.
Just add some kind of default password? If you have the LDAP module enabled the password field will never be read, so you can just give every use the same password.
