Re: ACL: write access allowed based on a user specific attribute

thaks Dieter,

your links lead me to the following in my slapd.conf:

access to *
    by set="user/admin & [TRUE]" write
    by self write
    by * read
    by anonymous read

I must add that user/admin & [TRUE] represents the currently logged in user and its "admin" attribute that must be set to TRUE. It wasn't clear that "user" represents the currently logged in user: I thought it was the name of the parent node or something like this... LDAP concept is still quite not clear for me !

Again, thanks Dieter

Hello all OpenLDAP users,

I'm quite new to LDAP and I need to modify a currently existing LDAP database.
There exist users in the database which can authentify, and I would like to add a specific parameter on some of those users to enable write access to them (for the moment they only have read access)
For example I currently have 2 users:


I changed my schema in order to be able to define an attribute admin="TRUE" on user1. Now, I would like that only user1 could change anything in the database, and not user2. How would I do that ?
Is it possible to define an ACL based on the attribute of a DN ?
