No. The refint_nothing value only affects modifications that the
refint overlay itself would make when trying to maintain integrity. It
doesn't interfere with user modification requests at all.
I'm not sure I understand "user modification requests" well. By user, do
you mean the person who manipulate the directory or an object of "type"
If I have memberof overlay activated and it changes the uid's memberof
attribute, isn't it a user modification request (by memberof overlay) ?
I've tested refint another way. I removed the user (identified by uid)
from the directory.
When the user is deleted, refint_nothing works and replaces the last
member with the placeholder (I also have some debug information in
logs). I thought that refint_nothing would also work when a modification
is done on one of refint attributes. Maybe you can confirm I'm wrong
Is there a way to accomplish what I want ?
