Overview#Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Transactions extends the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) to allow clients to relate a number of update operations and have them performed as one unit of interaction, a transaction.
This extension consists of two extended operations, one control, and one Unsolicited Notification message.
Elements of an LDAP Transaction
- Start Transaction Request/Start Transaction Response is used to obtain a transaction identifier. This identifier is then attached to multiple update operations to indicate that they belong to the transaction using the Transaction Specification Control.
- Transaction Specification Control
- End Transaction Request/End Transaction Response is used to settle (commit or abort) the transaction.
- Aborted Transaction Notice is provided by the server to notify the client that the server is no longer willing or able to process an outstanding transaction.
