Intermediate Response

The LDAP intermediate response message is a special type of LDAP Protocol Exchange that allows the server to send additional messages providing information about the state of an operation before it has completed processing and the final response message is sent.

Prior to the introduction of the intermediate response in RFC 3771, only search operations were allowed to send multiple responses.

The intermediate response protocol op is defined as follows:

IntermediateResponse ::= [APPLICATION 25] SEQUENCE 
    responseName     [0] LDAPOID OPTIONAL,
    responseValue    [1] OCTET STRING OPTIONAL
