Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSERVER-1183) searching with quoted attribute values in a DN causes either noSuchObject or invalidDNSyntax
Date Mon, 02 Jun 2008 17:55:46 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSERVER-1183?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12601682#action_12601682
] 

Emmanuel Lecharny commented on DIRSERVER-1183:
----------------------------------------------

I will check the code, the RFCs and ee if we can safely support RFC 2253 syntax.

More to come later.

>          Components: ldap

> searching with a  base DN that has quoted values results in noSuchObject. for example:
> ldapsearch -b 'cn=foo' ...
> works, but:
> ldapsearch -b 'cn="foo"' ...
> causes noSuchObject. Further, if there is an escaped value inside the quotes, invalidDNSyntax
occurs:
> ldapsearch -b 'cn=Parker\, Matt' ...
> works, but:
> ldapsearch -b 'cn="Parker\, Matt"' ...
> causes invalidDNSyntax.
> RFC 2253 section 4 (http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2253#section-4) clearly states that
this is legal, but is obsoleted by 4514, which isn't as clear (at least to me). Although since
most clients that are in use were probably at least written against 2253, it makes sense to
continue to support quoted values for maximum compatibility, even if it's optional.
