NAME

slapo-refint - Referential Integrity overlay  

SYNOPSIS

/etc/openldap/slapd.conf  

DESCRIPTION

The Referential Integrity overlay can be used with a backend database such as slapd-bdb(5) to maintain the cohesiveness of a schema which utilizes reference attributes.

Integrity is maintained by updating database records which contain the named attributes to match the results of a modrdn or delete operation. For example, if the integrity attribute were configured as manager, deletion of the record "uid=robert,ou=people,o=openldap.org" would trigger a search for all other records which have a manager attribute containing that DN. Entries matching that search would have their manager attribute removed.  

CONFIGURATION

These slapd.conf options apply to the Referential Integrity overlay. They should appear after the overlay directive.
refint_attributes <attribute...>
Specify one or more attributes for which integrity will be maintained as described above.
refint_nothing <string>
Specify an arbitrary value to be used as a placeholder when the last value would otherwise be deleted from an attribute. This can be useful in cases where the schema requires the existence of an attribute for which referential integrity is enforced. The attempted deletion of a required attribute will otherwise result in an Object Class Violation, causing the request to fail.
