Subject [jira] [Commented] (DIRSTUDIO-831) Creating and using Custom Object Class in my Apache Directory Studio
Date Tue, 04 Sep 2012 20:54:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSTUDIO-831?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13448039#comment-13448039

Emmanuel Lecharny commented on DIRSTUDIO-831:
---------------------------------------------

First thing you have to know : the schema is *not* standardized across LDAP servers : each
one of them have their one  specific format, and we don't support anything but ApacheDS in
Studio (at least, atm).

So bottom line, whatever you have done will work on ApacheDS, but not on your LDAP server.

Btw, which LDAP server are you using ?

> Disclaimer: I am new to the world of LDAP authentication and am learning as I go. 
> I am in need of a custom object class where I can add custom attributes that is not available
with inetorgperson. The current situation is that I think I have created a custom schema with
the object class I need, but, I am still unable to choose this custom object class when I
am creating a new entry.
> After a lot of trying and retrying, reading through multiple sites and suggestions, I
finally created a new schema that looks very much like inetorgperson. I arrived here by following
the steps below:
> 1) In my LDAP Browser, under ou=schema, I navigate to cn=inetorgperson
> 2) Right click on it -> Export -> LDIF Export.
> 3) I use this as the template and change all occurrences of "inetorgperson" to my custom
name.
> 4) Towards the end of the LDIF file,  I changed the m-supObjectClass to point to inetorgperson
> 5) I then modify the LDIF file to add the custom attributes.
> 6) I then import this modified LDIF file.
> 7) I can now see my cn=instinetorgperson  right under the cn=inetorgperson.
> The attributes seems to be similar.
> But, I am still unable to choose this custom object class when I am creating a new entry.
> What other information would you need to help me out here.
> Thanks in advance
