It seems to be true for reading operation only no for others for example:


in function backsql_add:

it verifies if:

- dn is valid
- objectclass exists.
- "create procedure" exists for the sgbd.

After, this function get a connection to the sgbd and calls the
"add" procedure of the sgbd. It do not see any acl verificiation.

I imagine that no verifications are made before calling this function
since this is here that validities of dn and objectclass are
checked. Maybe i am wrong.

See you.
