NAME         top

       slapo-collect - Collective attributes overlay to slapd

SYNOPSIS         top


DESCRIPTION         top

       The collect overlay is used to provide a relatively coarse
       implementation of RFC 3671 collective attributes.  In X.500, a
       collective attribute is "a user attribute whose values are the same
       for each member of an entry collection".

       Collective attributes are added to entries returned by a search
       operation when the entry is within the scope of the related ancestor.
       Collective attributes can only be modified when the modification
       affects the related ancestor.


       This slapd.conf option applies to the collect overlay.  It should
       appear after the overlay directive.

       collectinfo <DN> <attrlist>
              Specify the DN of the ancestor entry and the set of related
              collective attributes, where attrlist is a comma-separated
              list of attributes.  The DN should be within the naming
              context of the database.
