I am looking to add fields into the user definition in FreeIPA 4.4.

Right now I have modified the user schema and added the fields in the Web UI for editions.

Now I would like to be able to change the new fields added (country code c and country name co) via the JSON API and thus via the CLI tool. This will require to changes already existing API call such as user_add, user_show etc.

I have found examples of such plugins but for FreeIPA 3, and it seems that the python API changed since then because those are not working when I adapt those with the good field name. I get the following error:

$ ipa
ipa: ERROR: ImportError: No module named plugins
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/ipalib/cli.py", line 1348, in run

  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/ipalib/plugable.py", line 422, in __do_if_not_done

    module = importlib.import_module(name)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/importlib/__init__.py", line 37, in import_module
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/ipaclient/plugins/country.py", line 1, in <module>
    from ipalib.plugins import user
ImportError: No module named plugins
ipa: ERROR: an internal error has occurred

Is there a minimal example somewhere online of adding one or two new attributes to a user for FreeIPA 4.4?

Small precision, I know at least one example of full-blown plugin that adds a whole new type of object, but as far as I get everything in there, it is not applicable in the case of adding new fields for an already existing object.
