Manao ahoana, Hello, Bonjour,
I look for the way to search for the parent of the matched target.
FOr example, let's image a forum, with multiple topics
Each topic has comments (for simplicit let's make them flat)
- comment 234
- comment 65
- comment 659
- comment 4
- comment 351
- comment 323
Comments ID are unique.
I perform a search:
ldapsearch (...) commentId=659
The only way to have the parent (girls) is for me to parse the
resulting "dn" of that search, splitting it by ",". Bad& Dirty.
How (which argument/option) to get the parent of commentId=659?
I don't know which language or API you are using, but if it does not
provide a way to manipulate a DN, then you'd better think abot using
You can also search starting from the parent (boys, girls, dogs) using a
filter like (commentId=659) and a scope ONE, you will then have the
exact DN having this comment, but that means you will do three searches.
Not sure that's less ugly :/
Last ugly solution : store the parent's DN in your comment. Yuk...
Ok, then back to the API : find a good one ;)
Misaotra, Thanks, Merci.
de rien :)
