Hi again,

I have another question (again) : how do you clear an attribute value in ldap ? My tests shows that if I define an attribute with an empty value I get the error “'{attribute name}' has no values.” (see below).


I’m using a script where if an attribute has value “Y” set a value in the attribute, otherwise set an empty value. This is an important use case in our distribution group integration since we want users to be able to mail-disable groups and that requires us to clear some ldap attributes (mail, mailNickname, proxyAdresses, etc.)


Is there a way to do that ?

I tried setting replaceValues=”true” but it didn’t work and there doesn’t seem that there’s any parameters to set that.
