A warm "Hello" from germany to the openldap-technical list!
I´m rather new to OpenLDAP, using version 2.4.12 on a SLES11 server.
I need to write an ACL which allows a user to see his own entry (objectClass
build up on inetOrgPerson) and nothing else.
I know that this isn´t the intended use of the LDAP system, but our manager
wants it that way.
I tried it with somekind of that:
access to dn.regex="uid=([^,]+),dc=justushere,dc=de$" attrs=entry
by dn.regex="uid=$1,ou=Users,dc=justushere,dc=de" write
by users none
but I just get a message about invalid credentials.
Used command was:
ldapsearch -xWD uid=user1,ou=users,dc=justushere,dc=de uid=user1
ldapsearch -xWD cn=admin,dc=justushere,dc=de uid=user1 with the rootdn
account shows the information, but if the uid of the user1 is used for binding
Has anyone an idea how to realize these restrictions?
Additionally not all attributes should get listed to the user, only a few
important for him. My idea was to use a ACL like the above to be sure the user
only gets access to his object and then add a second ACL below who restricts
the access to the important attributes.
