Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSTUDIO-348) LDAP Studio 1.1.0 shows non existing attribute "name" when accessing eDirectory 8.8
Date Tue, 08 Jul 2008 21:13:31 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSTUDIO-348?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12611801#action_12611801
] 

Emmanuel Lecharny commented on DIRSTUDIO-348:
---------------------------------------------

The 'name' attribute is an essential part of LDAP schema. It's explicitly said in RFC 4519
that 'name' attributeType should be recognized by a LDAP server :

2.  Attribute Types

   The attribute types contained in this section hold user information.

   There is no requirement that servers implement the 'searchGuide' and
   'teletexTerminalIdentifier' attribute types.  In fact, their use is
   greatly discouraged.

   An LDAP server implementation SHOULD recognize the rest of the
   attribute types described in this section.
...

2.18.  'name'

   The 'name' attribute type is the attribute supertype from which user
   attribute types with the name syntax inherit.  Such attribute types
   are typically used for naming.  The attribute type is multi-valued.

   It is unlikely that values of this type itself will occur in an
   entry.  LDAP server implementations that do not support attribute
   subtyping need not recognize this attribute in requests.  Client
   implementations MUST NOT assume that LDAP servers are capable of
   performing attribute subtyping.

> LDAP Studio 1.1.0 shows non existing attribute "name" when accessing eDirectory 8.8 on
every entry. The value of this attribute is always equal to cn. Attribute "name" is not a
valid LDAP attribute in the eDirectory schema.
> Attribute can not be deleted or modified:
> Error while modifying value
> [LDAP: error code 17 - Undefined Attribute Type]
>   [LDAP: error code 17 - Undefined Attribute Type]
> Object copy with "Copy Entry/DN" fails with the same error.
> This wasn't the case with eDirectory 8.7.3.
