I started with LDAP just recently and I successfully built and
implemented a custom schema. However there is one problem. I am
required to add "userPasswordAtt" attribute to my custom schema which
is similar to "userPassword" attribute in "inetOrgPerson" schema.
This is what I tried so far:
attributetype ( 188.8.131.521.13.1
It is basically a copy/paste of "userPassword" attribute.
objectclass ( 184.108.40.2061.1.1
DESC 'e-oskrba participant'
SUP top STRUCTURAL
MUST ( bidAtt $ uidAtt $ cnPatient $ userPasswordAtt )
MAY ( patientCoopFlagAtt $ patientsDoctorAtt $ eMailAtt $
dateOfBirthAtt $ sexAtt $ healthcareInstitutionAtt $
memberAtt $ mobilePhoneAtt $ experimentalGroupAtt ) )
But with this attribute I can not log in to phpLDAPadmin for example.
It also doesn't cover password with dots on creation as it does with
As far as I know "userPassword" is never defined as password in any
schema, I am suspecting that it has to be somehow hardcoded (I also
checked inheritance which goes all the way from core.schema).
So far I also tried to avoid inheriting attributes from defined schemas.
How can I use my custom attribute in the same way as
Some pointers for future research would be greatly appreciated.
