Subject [jira] Created: (DIRSTUDIO-385) Add dialog to create a new context entry
Date Sat, 30 Aug 2008 18:17:44 GMT
Add dialog to create a new context entry

                 Key: DIRSTUDIO-385
             Project: Directory Studio
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: studio-ldapbrowser
    Affects Versions: 1.2.1
         Environment: ApacheDS 1.5.3 SNAPSHOT
            Reporter: Stefan Zoerner
            Priority: Minor

If someone creates a partition for ApacheDS and does not add a context entry in the configuration
of the server.xml (possible with ApacheDS 1.5.4 and above), it can't be used. A context entry
has to be added first with the help of an LDAP add command.

Unfortunately, this is not possible with Apache Directory Studio 1.2.0, id the DN of the suffix
contains more than one RDN. For instance, New Entry does not work for the entry dc=example,dc=com

I recommend a new menu item called "Add new context entry" or "Add new suffix", which is comparable
to the Add entry dialog, but allows the user to provide the complete DN without a parent.

A highlight would be, if the dialog detects possible values from the namingContexts attribute
from the Root DSE. If a new partition has been added to the server.xml, it is listed there.
