The login screen is pretty confusing when you have LDAP and Username/Password enabled
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

This is what my login screen looks like when I've got both LDAP (for internal users) and Username/Password (for external users).

This is pretty confusing and bad. I've had a number of users completely derp out over the concept of using the proper log in box for their credential type.

noidea

In an ideal world, we'd have just one login prompt and be able to specify fallback rules, e.g.: try this credential as a username/password first. If that fails, try hitting LDAP. (or the other way around). A marginally more acceptable solution (than the current situation) would be to have tabs and/or a combo box to select the credential type.

This isn't ideal, but it's also not something we can prioritize right now.
