Subject [jira] Updated: (DIRSTUDIO-147) Allow LDIF imports to overwrite existing entries
Date Sun, 27 Jan 2008 16:47:34 GMT


Stefan Seelmann updated DIRSTUDIO-147:

    Fix Version/s: 1.2.0
         Assignee: Stefan Seelmann

I wonder what would be the better strategy:

1) Try to add the entry, if we get an error 68 (Entry Already Exists) we do the update.
2) Check first via a search if the entry already exists, depending on the search result do
an add or update.

> Jarek Gawor's LDAP Browser/Editor has a valuable feature when doing LDIF imports:  the
ability to import in "add", "update", or "update/add" mode.  This lets us create an LDIF file,
import it, tweak it, and re-import it.  A simple checkbox in the LDIF import dialog to "update
existing entries" would do the trick nicely (along with the supporting code to actually do
the work!!).
