Subject [jira] [Commented] (DIRSERVER-1844) Add support for memberOf virtual attribute
Date Thu, 21 Jun 2018 17:17:00 GMT


Emmanuel Lecharny commented on DIRSERVER-1844:

It's not implemented. We have more urgent things to deal with.

Side note : memberOf is a hack, and I don't think it's a very valuable feature. It saves a
search, but the server has to pay the price for it :
* either you store the information in *each* entry and then doing a MODDN is potentially *very*
costly (we are talking about minutes of processing if there is a lot of such entries)
* or it's computed on the fly, and that mean an extra search is done internally.

Typically something that *seems* smart, but isn't.
