A Forum reader recently asked:
"I want to synchronize some Boolean attributes with IDM3 to an OpenLDAP directory. Doing so, I get the error "value #0 invalid per syntax". I found out that Boolean values in NDS are stored in lowercase letters (true/false) but OpenLDAP requires uppercase values (TRUE/FALSE) according to RFC 2252, section 6.4.
I there a way to change all Boolean attributes from NDS to uppercase values for OpenLDAP in general? Or do I need to change each attribute separately?"
And here's a solution from Father Ramon ...
You can use something like this in an output transformation policy:
<description>convert boolean values to upper case</description>
