Re: Making copies of attribute values

Dear Friends,

I have a need to extend an LDAP schema by adding an attribute and copy the
value from an existing attribute to it. We need to keep the two copies of
the attribute values in synch. It is a kind of replication where it is
replicating one attribute into another in the same record.

I appreciate your help.

If I understand you correctly, you need to add an attribute with a different attribute name, and then make sure the values stay synchronized?

E.g. you have an attribute uid=jsmith and you want another attribute nickname=jsmith?

If the above is correct, aliasing and/or rewrites may fit your purpose.

For further assistance I think it would be useful to provide an example or two.
