Thanks for the advice - I think you're right about filtering on the
attribute. However, doing so still returns
the entire list, not the individual member I'm filtering for.
That is the way LDAP search filters work, as Quanah explained in his followup.
And yes, this comment deserves an RTFM response.
Note that there is a ValuesReturnFilter control (RFC3876) which can be used to
only return specific values in a result.
I'm not quite sure how to explain this behavior, given the implications
made in the following two posts which indicate
that I should be able to use dynamically generated attributes as filter
The posts you reference make no such implication.
States quite clearly "the dynamic members are not present in the entry during
search, when the filter is evaluated. You can only filter for static data."
Or again, for clarity: You cannot use dynamically generated attributes as
The suggestion to use the autogroup overlay is precisely because autogroup
does not use dynamically generated attributes, and therefore doesn't run into
Also, in the earlier ITS filed for the autogroup contrib overlay, it
states that for searches and compares, it should
behave like a static group, bolstering that supposition:
How does "behaves like a static group" in any way support the notion that
*dynamic* content is supported?
So, should I be searching for a bug (which was the premise for the OP), or
has the behavior of autogroup changed since its inception?
As always, many thanks for any and all advice!
You should be re-checking the enormous logical leaps you have made based on
the material you have read. Another reason questions go un-answered is because
the person asking them has already demonstrated such poor reading
comprehension that the time spent writing an answer would be wasted; the
answer will obviously be misunderstood.
"static" and "dynamic" are clearly antonyms in this context but you have
conflated the two together and are asking why you aren't seeing the behavior
you expect. Since we can only communicate in English on this list, if you
don't even understand this basic semantic in English then you're beyond our
ability to help.
