Subject [jira] [Commented] (DIRSTUDIO-807) How to support Dot character in attribute name
Date Sat, 28 Apr 2012 09:03:49 GMT


pradip sonar commented on DIRSTUDIO-807:

Actually we are migrating Wnodws registry data to LDAP structure. In our current windows registry,
some key name contains underscore, dot and space characters.
So we expect the same in LDAP structure and we cannot change dot,space,underscore characters
to hypen because there many clients which are using this registry data. so is there any settings
to allow dot,space in attribute name?
As per RFC, underscore character is also not allowed in attribute name, but in apached ds
1.5.x version I see underscore is supported in attribute name. so is there any things to be
done to support dot, space in attribute name?
