Question regarding rewrite rules (slapd-ldap backend)
I'm using OL 2.2.26 (Debian unstable). My goal is to configure a LDAP proxy.
I'm using the slapd-ldap backend. The basic configuration of the proxy is OK.
LDAP searches are perfectly forwarded from the proxy to the master LDAP server
(on which I do not have any particular administrative right). This part
works perfectly well. However in order to simplify interoperabilty between
clients behind the proxy and information stored into the master LDAP (which I
cannot change) I want to rewrite on the fly some attributes (not the name of
attributes, but the values carried by attributes). More precisely, the
homeDirectory attribute has the following pattern /private/d1/d2/login (into
the master LDAP server) which I would like to change into /home/login. So
clients behind the proxy server would see different homeDirectory attributes.
I have been trying to use the rewriteEngine. However I have the feeling that
it does not work. Here is a fragment of the configuration file I have written
in order to rewrite the homeDirectory attribute (posixAccount schema):
rewriteRule "(homeDirectory.*)/([a-zA-Z0-0-9]+)$" "%1/home/%2" :@
It does not work. So my question is simple is it possible to modify on the
fly attributes values of search result ?
