autogroup overlay Readme
The autogroup overlay allows automated updates of group membership which
meet the requirements of any filter contained in the group. The filters
are build from the LDAP URI-valued attributes. Any time an object is
added/deleated/updated, it is tested for compilance with the filters,
and its membership is accordingly updated. For searches and compares
it behaves like a static group.
A Makefile is included.
# dyngroup.schema:
The dyngroup schema must be modified, adding the 'member' attribute
to the MAY clause of the groupOfURLs object class, i.e.:
objectClass ( NetscapeLDAPobjectClass:33
NAME 'groupOfURLs'
MAY ( memberURL $ businessCategory $ description $ o $ ou $
owner $ seeAlso $ member) )
# slapd.conf:
moduleload /path/to/
Loads the overlay (OpenLDAP must be build with --enable-modules).
overlay autogroup
This directive adds the autogroup overlay to the current database.
autogroup-attrset <group-oc> <URL-ad> <member-ad>
This configuration option is defined for the autogroup overlay.
It may have multiple occurrences, and it must appear after the
overlay directive.
The value <group-oc> is the name of the objectClass that represents
the group.
The value <URL-ad> is the name of the attributeDescription that
contains the URI that is converted to the filters. If no URI is
present, there will be no members in that group. It must be a subtype
of labeledURI.
The value <member-ad> is the name of the attributeDescription that
specifies the member attribute. User modification of this attribute
is disabled for consistency.
### slapd.conf
include /path/to/dyngroup.schema
# ...
moduleload /path/to/
# ...
database <database>
# ...
overlay autogroup
autogroup-attrset groupOfURLs memberURL member
### end slapd.conf
As with static groups, update operations on groups with a large number
of members may be slow.
