LDAP login works properly, but no User Topic is created

Dear all,

LDAP works perfectly for me with following settings:

{LoginManager} TemplateLogin (doesn't work with LdapApacheLogin)
{UserMappingManager} LdapUserMapping
{PasswordManager} LdapPasswdUser

with one small exception - when I ask other domain users, they're able to log into Foswiki properly (if they provide incorrect password there's error displayed),

but no User Topic is created, so I am not able to properly assign them to groups/grant them permissions.

As a workaround, I created "manually" (copy to foswiki text files with users accounts)

I discovered what was wrong - RegistrationAgent user was unable to create new account.

Solution: go to /Main/WebPreference and add RegistrationAgent to ALLOWWEBCHANGE (Set ALLOWWEBCHANGE = MyGroup, RegistrationAgent)

Yes. If you restrict the Main web, then RegistrationAgent must be allowed to update the web or there will be issues.
