Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSTUDIO-461) Add validation functionality
Date Tue, 10 Feb 2009 17:54:59 GMT

Paul Dorman commented on DIRSTUDIO-461:
---------------------------------------

Thanks for your informative comment Stefan. Yes, referential integrity was exactly the thing
I was thinking of :o). In the case of uniqueMembers of groups, I can select an entry and discover
that it is invalid by pressing the F3 key. When a number of entries are selected, the F3 functionality
could be changed to highlight invalid entries, as it is otherwise disabled at that time. The
other cases you mention would clearly require more work though.

It would be useful to select a vertex in the directory tree and have 'validate entries' or
some such to identify invalid entries. This would help me tune my deliberate directory corruption
so I can be confident my application handles real errors. I use OpenLDAP, which seems to allow
a lot of errors.
> This feature would also be helpful for those reorganizing or debugging a directory. Our
directory is particularly poor at the moment and we would benefit from some good analysis
tools.
> Thanks for a great program though. Beats Luma (QT3 and Python) and LDAPBrowser (Java)
hands down.
