Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSTUDIO-385) Add dialog to create a new context entry
Date Wed, 03 Sep 2008 20:31:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSTUDIO-385?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12628123#action_12628123

Stefan Zoerner commented on DIRSTUDIO-385:
------------------------------------------

Oups. You are right. If I select one of the required attributes, which are already filled,
the buttons become active. Sorry for that. But I would recommend the behavior you have described
above (the fix), and I am eager to see it (I will wait for the next nightly build).

Thanks Stefan!

> 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.
