Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSTUDIO-461) Add validation functionality
Date Tue, 10 Feb 2009 09:29:00 GMT


Stefan Seelmann commented on DIRSTUDIO-461:

LDAP doesn't specifiy referential integrity. However some server implement it. OpenLDAP for
example has an overlay for that. In ApacheDS it could be implemented with a new interceptor
or by using Triggers and StoredProcedures.

Group membership (which uses DNs for relationship) is only one case. For example when you
store posixAccount and posixGroup in your LDAP then the reference between them is based on
integer attributes (gidNumber, uidNumber, memberUid). So I think what's 'valid'  depends on
the data you store in your LDAP.

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.

directory is particularly poor at the moment and we would benefit from some good analysis

hands down.
