Subject [jira] [Commented] (DIRSTUDIO-732) apache directory studio don't support OID Macros
Date Sat, 09 Apr 2011 17:21:05 GMT


Emmanuel Lecharny commented on DIRSTUDIO-732:

Being not an LDAP expert, it would be wise not to use a feature which is very specific to
OpenLDAP only. 

I agree that OID macros is a cool feature, but sadly, it's also a guarantee to be a way to
get incompatible LDAP data in the long run.

I'm pretty sure that OpenLDAP peeps have added this feature to ease the management of internal
schemas (like configuration or such), but this is only good for people dealing with elements
which *won'* be exposed.

Use of plain OID (ie, without macros) is frankly a better idea.
