Adjust passport script to parameterize whether updates should be applied to user profile or not #987

In passport flow, the info released by external provider is parsed and an update is applied to local profile in LDAP. That is, the provider is treated as a trusted source of data. If one attribute changes or disappears, the same will reflect locally

There is a special case where no profile edition should take place: Linking of external accounts via casa's account linking plugin.

Info for QA team:

  • An application protected using passport_social or passport_saml should behave as normally (ie if profile data changes at external IDP, the same will happen locally upon the subsequent login)

  • When using Casa configured with account linking plugin + external providers integration, no profile update should take place.
