Re: Foreign Key Attributes w/ LDAP

Does OpenLDAP have the capability to link attributes in different directories to one another? Something similar to cascading foreign key relationships in SQL? I would like for OpenLDAP to cascade a pair of userPassword attributes in two separate directories.

Thank you for your assistance.



I am not very current on this but... LDAP does not support (or didn't support) any concept of referential integrity. I have heard of a proposal to add such a functionality but don't really know where it is

You might be able to cheat. Use mysql for the backend and modify the rdbms schema yourself + some triggers?....
