RT error “Couldn't load user ''

Hi I have installed RT4 and when I try to create a user I am getting an error
RT error “Couldn’t load user ''
I read in one of your mailing list replies saying that user was got over this
issue by removing Authen::ExternalAuth from plugging. But in my case I am unable
to do so since AD authentication is my primary method of authentication.
http://lists.fsck.com/pipermail/rt-users/2009-December/062628.html
I don’t want RT to create users in AD but to create new users in oracle DB
Can someone tell me how to get over this problem?
Thanks & regards

Hi Asanka,
can you paste the full error, please?

Thanks,

Hi I have installed RT4 and when I try to create a user I am getting an error
RT error "Couldn’t load user ‘’

Are you sure the user doesn’t already exist?

Go to Tools -> Configuration -> Users -> Select and use either the Go
To User box or the search to see if the user you’re creating already
exists as an unprivileged user.

Hi Kevin, yes I did checked for users and I have tried few users which
currently not configured in the Oracle db or AD with the same result that is
giving the error RT error “Couldn’t load user ‘’

Hi I was playing with the user creation and what I found was, if I don’t have
the user that I am going to create in the AD I am getting this error. If I have
the user name in the AD the account gets created with out any errors but I don’t
see these new users from the RT select user screen. But if I logged on to the
from the backend, I can query the users table and I can see them

  1.   1. Any idea why I am unable to create any users which are not already 
    

in the AD
2. 2. Once I create the user in AD I can created the users without errors,
but I am unable to list these new users from RT web interface. (by running

Hi Asanka,
maybe I haven’t understood the problem.

You have users in AD and you want to let them authenticate to RT,
right? If the users does not exist, you will need to have the user
created first, manually or automatically - this is before any privilege
can be granted.

You will not find users under “select” unless they are first
imported/autocreated/created manually. This is most commonly done when
they login for the first time.

somewhere something is missing) , when I select the option “Let this user be

I am still unable to find any thing for question 1 though

There is a check box on the user select page that says to search disabled
users…

A non-privileged user is synonymous with a disabled user.

I’m not sure of how it’s worded on RT4, but in RT3.8.10, at the top of the
user select page it says “Privileged Users”, and at the bottom of the page,
where you can enter search criteria “Include disabled users in search”.

I believe the issue that you are running into is that you are attempting to
create an RT user with information that matches a currently “disabled” or
"non-privileged" user, which isn’t listed on the “user select” form as that
form only shows “Privileged Users”.

HTH.

Unprivileged
Privileged
Disabled

are three different user states. Disabled users are not synonymous
with Unprivileged users. You can disable a Privileged user or you can
disable an Unprivileged user.

Removing the checkbox 'Let this user be granted rights (Privileged)'
makes them Unprivileged. Removing the checkbox 'Let this user access RT’
disables the user.

Hi I have installed RT4 and when I try to create a user I am getting an
error

RT error “Couldn’t load user ‘’

I just hit this very same error on a fresh rt4 install. What I found
was if I set the root users e-mail to ghenry@suretecsystems.com and
saved that, then when I tried to create a user called ghenry also with
the e-mail address of ghenry@suretecsystems.com I get that error. As
soon as I change either one so they are not the same I can create a
new user.

Although now I can’t set the new user a password, but can make them
privileged. The password sections asked for the root users current
password and won’t let me set one for the normal user!

Thanks.

http://www.surevoip.co.uk

Although now I can’t set the new user a password, but can make them
privileged. The password sections asked for the root users current
password and won’t let me set one for the normal user!

In a standard RT4, there are 3 password fields
Current Users’s password
New Password
Retype Password

You type your password in the first and then the user’s password is
typed twice to avoid typos.
