Subject [jira] Created: (DIREVE-268) Adding a duplicate attribute value should cause an error.
Date Sun, 25 Sep 2005 19:35:48 GMT
Adding a duplicate attribute value should cause an error.
---------------------------------------------------------

         Key: DIREVE-268
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIREVE-268
     Project: Directory Server
        Type: Bug
    Versions: 0.9.3    
    Reporter: Stefan Zoerner
 Assigned to: Alex Karasulu 
    Priority: Minor


Adding a duplicate attribute value to an entry with a single modify operation results in an
invalid entry. After the operation it contains the parameter value twice. Hence someone is
able to change this entry

dn: cn=Heather Nova,ou=system
objectClass: top
objectClass: person
cn: Heather Nova
sn: Nova

into an entry which looks like this:

dn: cn=Heather Nova,ou=system
objectClass: top
objectClass: person
objectClass: organizationalPerson
objectClass: organizationalPerson
cn: Heather Nova
sn: Nova

Expected behavior is LDAP Error code: 20 (Indicates that the attribute value specified in
a modify or add operation already exists as a value for that attribute). This is quite similar
to DIREVE-241 ("Adding an already existing attribute value with a modify operation does not
cause an error."). But in this case, the attribute value is not present before, but is created
with a single modify operation with two add changes. OK, it is a little bit bizarre, but other
LDAP servers successfully refuse such an operation.

Find attached a test case with two tests, one for an already existing attribute type, and
one for a new type (the issue arises in both occasions).
