OpenLDAP schema map
I have created a Compendium map of all of the OpenLDAP schemas (even the
The map visually links together all of the Attributes, Object Clases,
Syntax references and other definition tags.
It also includes the text of the RFCs that I have found relating to
LDAP(there may be more).
I did it a way to better understand the OpenLDAP ObjectClasses in order
to do a better job of extending it to add the things that I need.
It shows you what ObjectClasses are already defined and it also tells
you which ObjectClasses an Attribute appears it.
Each Attribute has a visual representation showing its properties and
the Syntax types are all linked to the www page with the official
In preparing this, I found a few anomolies in the schema files (one
ObjectClass with "description" both MUST and MAY, several undefined
syntaxes in use, unused attributes)
I would be happy to share this with anyone who is interested. You will
need to install Compendium to use it. The data is stored in MySQL by
Compendium so you will also need to get that installed as well. It is
all free and Compendium is a very useful tool on its own.
I will now make a branch of this document to add in the Attributes and
ObjectClasses that I need for my application. I am hoping that this
document will assist me in using the existing Attributes and Syntaxes
correctly and as fully as possible in my new entities. I also hope to
avoid creating redundant ObjectClasses.
