Subject [jira] [Created] (DIRAPI-286) AdDirSync Control does not support multiple flags
Date Mon, 28 Nov 2016 12:29:59 GMT
Caleb McQuillin created DIRAPI-286:

             Summary: AdDirSync Control does not support multiple flags
                 Key: DIRAPI-286
             Project: Directory Client API
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.0.0-RC2
            Reporter: Caleb McQuillin

When creating an initial search request using the DirSync control, I would like to pass multiple
flags. [Microsoft's documentation|]
Contains optional flags for use with the LDAP_SERVER_DIRSYNC_OID control. This can be zero
or a combination of one or more of the values listed in the following list.{quote}

Unfortunately, [the IETF document|]
that was linked in the ticket for supporting DirSync (DIRAPI-189) doesn't match the actual
implementation, as specified by Microsoft in the link above. The IETF document only specifies
a {{parentsFirst}} flag in the SearchRequest, but there are four potential SearchRequest flags
(all of which can be found in AdDirFlags). AdDirSync specifies methods for getting and setting
both a {{parentsFirst}} field and a {{flag}} field. In reality, there should be a single {{flags}}
field that is a collection of applicable flags. Additionally, it appears the {{flag}} field
is ignored during encoding and decoding - only the {{parentsFirst}} field is considered.

My recommendation for resolving this issue revolves around Java's EnumSet class which seems
to be commonly used for bitmasks in Java. I've drafted a patch for use in my project that
is utilizing the Directory Client API, I'd be happy to attach that patch here to be used at
least as a base for resolution of this issue.
