NAME

       slapo-refint - Referential Integrity overlay to slapd

SYNOPSIS

       /etc/ldap/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,dc=example,dc=com"  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.   Or,  renaming  the  same  record  into
       "uid=george,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com" 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 deleted
       and replaced by the new DN.

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.   The
              string must be a valid DN.

       refint_modifiersname <DN>
              Specify  the  DN to be used as the modifiersName of the internal
              modifications  performed  by  the  overlay.   It   defaults   to
              "cn=Referential Integrity Overlay".
