Re: Empty Strings attributes in OpenLDAP
I found this thread:
But it is dated 12 years ago, so I imagine it will be a little bit outdated. Also it claims to be a bug in version 2.0.x while I am using 2.4 in RHEL6.
Then some discussions about how to implement some zero-length options back in 2002 and 2004. So it doesn't seem pretty confusing to me. I still don't know if it is possible to have zero-length strings attributes in OpenLDAP and how.
When you mean my software is broken which one do you mean? My installation of OpenLDAP or the software using OpenLDAP.
For the record the attribute definition is:
attributeTypes: ( 126.96.36.199.188.8.131.52.27.9184.108.40.206 NAME ( 'securityQuestion' ) DESC 'Attribute to store the securityQuestion' EQUALITY caseIgnoreMatch SYNTAX 220.127.116.11.4.1.1418.104.22.168.15 X-ORIGIN 'User Defined' )
*.1.15 == ldap string
Thanks in advance.

Is there a way to define a string to be empty in OpenLDAP Schema? I read that
RFC 2252 doesnt allow empty strings. But is there any workaround for this like
a different SYNTAX or attribute type? We have a preexisting software which
tries to write empty strings and it is crashing because of this.
This has been hashed out numerous times. Your software is broken.
