Re: Dynamic group based on arbitrary value

My understanding is that the way dyngroup works is similar to dynlist in
that it expands a URL. So, for a group
cn=group1,cn=groups,dc=uta,dc=edu, I would have to have a memberURL (or
other labelURI sub) that contains the URL to be expanded.
But, I want to avoid having to manually create a base entry and
memberURL for each attribute they want to form groups by. So, if
dealing with attribA that has 3 possible values, I'm looking at:
This is a scaling nightmare if I have to set each group up, especially
since there are 14 attributes out there that someone wants to group by.
But I'm thinking there has to be a way to get this done using the
existing or perhaps a modified overlay. Any thoughts?
Hm, I see how that could be done, it sounds like an extension to one of the
dynamic group overlays... Still, that's an ugly naming convention. ;)
