Subject [jira] Resolved: (DIRSTUDIO-147) Allow LDIF imports to overwrite existing entries
Date Wed, 27 Aug 2008 07:09:44 GMT


Stefan Seelmann resolved DIRSTUDIO-147.

    Resolution: Fixed

Fixed. It is implemented using REPLACE operations for each attribute in the LDIF. Note that
attributes of the existing entry that are not defined in the LDIF record remain without modification.
For example if the entry has an attribute 'mail' but the LDIF doesn't contain such an attribute
then the 'mail' attribute remains in the entry. There is no delete operation.

Fixed with following commits:

> 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!!).
