Overview#

The AttributeSelection element of a search request provides a way of representing the attributes that should be included in SearchResultEntry.

In general, AttributeSelection is the set of attributes is a list of zero or more Attribute-Names for the attributes to return.

If no Attribute-Names are specified, then all user attributes and no Operational Attribute will be returned.

In addition to specific attribute descriptions, a number of special values may be provided with various meanings:

  • The string "1.1" may be provided to indicate that no attributes should be included in matching entries.
  • The string "*" (the asterisk) may be provided to indicate that all user attributes should be included in matching entries. This may be needed if the server should return all user attributes in addition to one or more operational attributes.
  • The string "+" (the plus sign) may be provided to indicate that all Operational Attributes should be included in matching entries.
  • An object class name may be provided, prefixed with the "@" character. This will be used to indicate that all attributes referenced by that object class should be included in matching entries.
This definition is as the defined within the RFC and maybe implemented differently or not supported in products from the various LDAP Server Implementations.
