Re: 'quote-insensitive' search

It's not a bad solution, although you only have to keep the true value first. With JNDI you'll get by default the first value(unless you call getAll()).
Perhaps the other approach is a bit better because it shows the trick only for searches.


dta good solution, but has

Is there any way to make 'enhanced searches' that allows not only ignore case, but also quoted characters as vocals, so I can find names that include á, é, ü, etc.? For example, find 'López' searching (sn=lopez).

Sorry, no.  What you can do is to store the unaccented version of
the name invisibly in the directory, as follows:

Put this in slapd.conf:

   # Subtypes of "name" (e.g. "cn" and "ou") with the
   # option ";x-hidden" can be searched for/compared,
   # but are not shown.  See slapd.access(5).
   attributeoptions x-hidden lang-
   access to attr=name;x-hidden by * search

Then store this in the directory:

   sn: López
   sn;x-hidden: Lopez

Now the filter (sn=lopez) will match 'sn;x-hidden: Lopez', but thanks to
the 'access' directive above, that value won't be returned from the

Could be that I'm misunderstanding all of this, but my method is the other way around.

I have a posixAccount user cn=Gøran (dunno how this will look on the
list, but that's G'oslash'ran). I put him in as cn=Goran, but since cn
is a multi-value attribute I also put him in as cn=Gøran (same record).
Now ldapsearch works either for Goran or Gøran. The ldif looks like:

dn: cn=Goran,ou=people,ou=groups,dc=billy,dc=demon,dc=nl
cn: Goran
cn:: R8O4cmFu

His mail *has* to be goran@ to make him rfc-compliant.

This is using GQ as GUI, by the way.
