Re: Rename attribute before return

To answer Quanah's question, I think your ITS, as answered by Kurt, is now entirely fulfilled by 2.3 code, by using back-relay and slapo-rwm; the only thing it doesn't allow is to use the requested name instead of the canonical one, e.g. returning "userid" instead of "uid" when "userid" is requested (this was a long debated question; I see the issue and I agree with the common answer that the current behavior is preferable; for those that still wish this to be possible, the answer is that it cannot be done with an overlay, so there's very little chance that it will ever be possible with OpenLDAP, except by hacking the code).
Well, it can be done, but you need to duplicate each entry before being returned, and generate new AttributeDescriptions corresponding to the desired attributes...
