Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSTUDIO-350) DS is not properly displaying case of group DN
Date Wed, 09 Jul 2008 10:39:31 GMT


Emmanuel Lecharny commented on DIRSTUDIO-350:

Attribute type (dc or cn) are _not_ case sensitive. In fact, dc, Dc, dC, DC, DomainComponent
and 0.9.2342.19200300.100.1.25 are all valid form of the dc attributeType.

guys, do you think it's possible to let a user type it's own attributeType using whatever
casing he wants? Even select another form than the short one ? (sometime, it would be better
to get 'locality' instead of 'l')

wdyt ?

>             Project: Directory Studio
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 1.1.0
>         Environment: RCP version, Java 6.0, Tivoli Directory Server
>            Reporter: Pavel Trka
> Im not big LDAP expert so I hope this is bug and not my misunderstanding of something
LDAP specific feature or something similar.
> We have problems with the way DS is working with case of some parts in DN strings. We
have some groups in ldap which have DN that look like this:
> cn=somegroup,ou=groups,DC=EXT,DC=COM
> we need DC in uppercase because of some application and Websphere Application Server
rights checking and so these groups are stored with DC in uppercase in LDAP.
> Problem with Apache Directory studio is that with such groups it's workjng like it is
stored like:
> cn=somegroup,ou=groups,dc=EXT,dc=COM
> So dc here is converted to lowercase.
> DS is displaying it like this, also when I copy DN to clipboard, export ldif etc, Im
still getting dc in lowecase. 
> Even also when Im creating new group and I use existing group as template (and this existing
group has DC in uppecase) newly created group is stored with dc in lowercase in ldap.
> I dont know if its specific for Tivoli directory server, but my wish is to have DS working
with case of DN exactly like it's stored in ldap ;)
