Subject [jira] Created: (DIRSTUDIO-528) Handle schema extension used for OpenLDAP attribute ordering
Date Mon, 31 Aug 2009 09:03:33 GMT
Handle schema extension used for OpenLDAP attribute ordering

                 Key: DIRSTUDIO-528
             Project: Directory Studio
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: studio-ldapbrowser
    Affects Versions: 1.4.0
            Reporter: Torsten Rehn

>From the OpenLDAP docs:

"Since the ordering of olcAccess directives is essential to their proper evaluation, but LDAP
attributes normally do not preserve the ordering of their values, OpenLDAP uses a custom schema
extension to maintain a fixed ordering of these values. This ordering is maintained by prepending
a "{X}" numeric index to each value [...]"

I don't know if ADStudio intends to support this, but if it does: it's a mess right now. Editing
and reordering those attributes is almost impossible. This is really needed when editing access
rules set via olcAccess in cn=config. Are there any plans for handling those attributes better?
The current situation makes me want to go back to slapd.conf.

My guess is that this would require some special editor that reads all values of the attribute
being edited, strips the curly braced indexes and uses "changetype: replace" to modify the
entire attribute instead of a single value.

I understand that OpenLDAP is probably not your main concern, but it would be nice.
