Subject [jira] Resolved: (DIRSTUDIO-410) Referral handling is problematic
Date Fri, 23 Oct 2009 09:57:59 GMT

Stefan Seelmann resolved DIRSTUDIO-410.
---------------------------------------

    Resolution: Fixed

I changed the referral handling options in the connection properties, see options and descriptions
below:

- Follow Referrals automatically:
Follows referrals and search continuations immediately if they are received from the directory
server. You are asked which connection you want to use to follow a specific referral URL,
this way you have full control regarding encryption and authentication options when following
referrals.

- Follow Referrals manually:
Received referrals and search continuations are just displayed in the Browser. As soon as
you open or expand such an search continuation the search is continued. You are asked which
connection you want to use to follow a specific referral URL, this way you have full control
regarding encryption and authentication options when following referrals. 

- Ignore Referrals:
Any referral or search continuation received from the directory server is silently ignored.
No error is logged, no dialog appears, no special entry is displayed in the DIT, no ManageDsaIT
control is sent to the server.


Especially the "Manage" option is removed, instead the "Controls" section now contains an
option "Use ManageDsaIT control while browsing", if activated the control is sent with each
request. It is also possible to send the ManageDsaIT control per request by selecting "Fetch
> Fetch Referrals" from the browser context menu.

> The way referrals are handled in the server is problematic. 
> There is a mix between JNDI and plain LDAP (ManageDsaIT control usage). 
> Beside the fact that one should be able to select the way referral should be handled
on each request (it's painful to have to disconnect when you change the global property),
for people used to deal with JNDI, the 'manage' option does not make sense.More than that,
'manage' defaults to 'ignore' (which is plain OK, so far), but the 'ignore' option is not
activated.
> I would suggest that we switch to 'ignore', 'throw' and 'follow' instead of 'follow',
'ignore' and 'manage'
