becouse I know that PostgreSQL would never let a duplicate field on a
To me if slapo-index let a program to bypass that constraint is at
least buggy and experimental eather.
The java program was written by people ot of my company, and I'm not
really in the position to tell them to change they're code becouse I'm
not able to make a correct index on a field. I'm not really used to
think at unicity is a constraint that can be bypassed...
That said, the author of the java code is collaborative and there is
room for a change if that demonstrates to be the correct solution.
Why would you use an unsupported backend that's entirely
It has been in the openldap repository for years so I thought that was at
least working. In the internet the documentation is verry scarce but
there are people that declare it's working for them
I'd guess that java is using the manageDSAit control to bypass
slapo-unique, and your other programs aren't.
Honestly I didn't even know about this possibility. Can I see that from the
logs? They're not currently aware of using it unless is a
default. What check can I ask them to perform?
Is there a way to inhibit this kind of access?
Thanks in advance
