I had problems with Bugzilla identification. Currently unique identity
is users email address. I had situation where email is not good option
I'm using Kerberos authentication and LDAP (MS AD) for authorization.
If user is put into the Bugzilla users group in LDAP, then he/she can
access Bugzilla. If user goes to Bugzilla page, he/she will
automatically get new account according to mail attribute in LDAP if
it hasn't existed before.
But if users mail attribute has changed, then he/she will
automatically get new account or administrator has to change user
I think better way would be to use unique user attribute from LDAP for
user identification like saMAccountname from AD. And if user login to
Bugzilla, then every time will be checked if he/she mail address is
still same or needs it synchronize.

Bugzilla actually should already be doing that. I might have
only fixed it for 3.2, but it should be storing the LDAP ID in the
extern_id column in the profiles table.
