Hello list,

is it possible to perform the deletion of only a certain number of values, from a multivalued attribute, without having to perform full deletion and then adding the ones we'd like to keep?
Of course.


(and this is just one example. See "Deleting an Attribute Value")

Hello Emmanuel, et al,

Indeed. I was using the ldapmodify man page as reference and it doesn't mention the option of providing the value we wish to delete.

I wonder if it's also possible to use the same approach but for value modification. In brief evaluation, my guess is no, since the ldif syntax doesn't provide any way to distinct between the value to be replaced and the one to replace with.

In this case one would possibly have something like

changetype: modify
replace: mailAlternateAddress
mailAlternateAddress: oldmail@example.com
mailAlternateAddress: newmail@example.com

But like i said, it doesn't make much sense.

Can someone enlighten me?

Hugo Monteiro.
