Subject [jira] [Commented] (DIRSTUDIO-807) How to support Dot character in attribute name
Date Tue, 24 Apr 2012 12:41:36 GMT


Pierre-Arnaud Marcelot commented on DIRSTUDIO-807:


As said on the Apache Directory Users ML [1] [2] [3], RFC 4512 "Lightweight Directory Access
Protocol (LDAP): Directory Information Models" clearly states that the name of an schema elements
can only be composed of characters (a-z, A-Z), digits (0-9) and hyphens ('-').
Any other character, dot ('.') included is forbidden.

You should replace your dots in the naming of our schema elements by hyphens.
