NAME         top

       slapo-dyngroup - Dynamic Group overlay to slapd

SYNOPSIS         top

       ETCDIR/slapd.conf

DESCRIPTION         top

       The Dynamic Group overlay allows clients to use LDAP Compare
       operations to test the membership of a dynamic group the same way
       they would check against a static group. Compare operations
       targeting a group's static member attribute will be intercepted
       and tested against the configured dynamic group's URL attribute.

       Note that this intercept only happens if the actual Compare
       operation does not return a LDAP_COMPARE_TRUE result. So if a
       group has both static and dynamic members, the static member list
       will be checked first.

CONFIGURATION         top

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

       attrpair <memberAttr> <URLattr>
              Specify the attributes to be compared. A compare operation
              on the memberAttr will cause the URLattr to be evaluated
              for the result.

EXAMPLES         top

         database mdb
         ...
         overlay dyngroup
         attrpair member memberURL

BACKWARD COMPATIBILITY         top

       The dyngroup overlay has been reworked with the 2.5 release to
       use a consistent namespace as with other overlays. As a side-
       effect the following cn=config parameters are deprecated and will
       be removed in a future release: olcDGAttrPair is replaced with
       olcDynGroupAttrPair olcDGConfig is replaced with
       olcDynGroupConfig
