TypedName LDAPSyntaxes is used for attributes whose values represent a level and an interval associated with an object.

A Component Syntax using DN, level and interval components.



TypedName names an EDirectory object and attaches two numeric values to it:

The level of the attribute indicates the priority.

The interval indicates the frequency of reference.

ObjectName Field#

The objectName or DN identifies the eDirectory object referred to by the TypedName and must refer to a DN of an entry that exists in the eDirectory tree. EDirectory verifies that this field refers to an existing object.

Level and Interval Fields#

The values of level and interval are user-assigned and relative. eDirectory does not check their values and thus applications can use them to order, enforce priorities, or implement iterative intervals.

Matching Rules#

In comparisons and searches using EQUALITY, all three parts of the field must be equal for attributes to be equal.

In comparisons and searches using eDirectory APPROXIMATE matching, the level and interval fields are ignored and only the objectName fields must be equal. eDirectory APPROXIMATE Matching is not supported using LDAP.
