#47980 Multiple COS pointer definitions that use the same attribute are not correctly evaluated
Closed: wontfix None Opened 6 years ago by mreynolds.

When using subtree password policies, each policy uses the same cosAttribute, and when we request the pwdpolicysubentry attribute, COS returns the first matching definition(regardless of the parent of the target entry).


Password policies set on the following branches, with an entry under each branch:


Then search each entry to see what password policy is inherited through COS:

ldapsearch ... -b "dc=example,dc=com" -xLLL uid=* pwdpolicysubentry

dn: uid=user2,ou=lower,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
pwdpolicysubentry: cn=cn\3DnsPwPolicyEntry\2Cou\3Dlower\2Cou\3DPeople\2Cdc\3De

dn: uid=user3,ou=lower,ou=lower,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
pwdpolicysubentry: cn=cn\3DnsPwPolicyEntry\2Cou\3Dlower\2Cou\3DPeople\2Cdc\3De

dn: uid=user4,ou=lower,ou=lower,ou=lower,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
pwdpolicysubentry: cn=cn\3DnsPwPolicyEntry\2Cou\3Dlower\2Cou\3DPeople\2Cdc\3De

COS pointer definitions are suppose to be applied to the branch on which they exist, but this does not appear to be happening correctly when using the same cosAttribute.

It does not change the result, but for the code readability, it'd be nice to remove the indentation of the line 3065 & 3066 (or put 3063 ~ 3066 in '{' and '}'). Thanks!
BTW, you already have my ack.
3064 3060 / Now compare the names of the attributes /
3065 3061 com_Result = slapi_utf8casecmp((unsigned char)((cosAttributes)e1)->pAttrName,(unsigned char)((cosAttributes)e2)->pAttrName);
3066 3062 if(0 == com_Result)
3063 / Now compare the cosPriorities /
3064 com_Result = pTemplate->cosPriority - pTemplate1->cosPriority;
3065 if(0 == com_Result)
3066 return -1;
3068 return com_Result;

Nice catch Noriko, indentation fixed
