How do I add a (or change the) pattern of the bind DN that slapd lets
me authenticate with?
I have a working slapd setup that I can happily bind to using DNs of
the form "cn=Bob Parr,dc=example,dc=com". However, all accounts also
have a unique "uid" attribute that I would like to use in addition to
(or, if not possible, instead of) the "cn"-based RDN for binding.
So, I'd like to (also) bind using the DN "uid=bob,dc=example,dc=com".
My understanding is that one entry can have several DNs as long as
each one is unambiguous. Shouldn't I be able to bind with anyone of
You could create an entry with distinguished name
but I would advise not to do so. Instead configure
olcAuthRegexp accordingly and do a sasl bind.
