Referential integrity is a mechanism for ensuring that any references to an entry are updated whenever that entry is removed or altered. Historically, referential integrity is primarily used to ensure that attributes with a DN
syntax (especially group membership attributes like member
) are properly maintained in the event of delete
and modify DN
operations. For a delete operation, any references to the target entry will be removed. For modify DN
operations, any references to the target entry will be renamed accordingly.
