Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSTUDIO-722) LDIF parser should allow attribute names with underscore ("_")
Date Wed, 12 Jan 2011 12:47:45 GMT


Emmanuel Lecharny commented on DIRSTUDIO-722:

I think it would be a good idea to allow such attribute names in the server too, with some
configuration telling the server if it should have a strict approach or not.

I was more specifically thinking about a set of flags in the config that can be set to true
or false depending on the aspect we accept or not.

>             Project: Directory Studio
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: studio-ldifeditor
>    Affects Versions: 1.5.3

>             Fix For: 2.0.0
> LDIF editor and import don't allow attribute names with an underscore, for example:
> dn: ou=test,dc=example,dc=com
> objectClass: organizationalUnit
> objectClass: top
> ou: test
> attribute_with_underscore: abc
> The underscore is not allowed wrt RFC 4512. However many directory server implementations
(DirX, OID, and various virtual directory servers like SAP VDS) allow underscores. It is not
possible to edit or re-import exported LDIFs from those servers. See also DIRSTUDIO-378 where
the underscore wasn't allowed for returning attributes in the search dialog.
