#1991 Make return codes of basic sysdb operations consistent
Closed: Fixed None Opened 8 years ago by jhrozek.

The return codes of various sysdb operations differ. Some search operations would return ENOENT if they don't find a matching object some would return EOK but an empty result list. This leads to bugs like #1989 where the programmer is not sure what the particular search function returns.

We should make sure that all functions of the same family (all delete functions, all search functions etc) behave consistently.

When implementing this ticket, please check our usage of tevent_req_error(req, ENOENT). The tevent requests should be consistent as well. We might not catch all cases, but checking the explicit use of ENOENT to terminate a request would be a good start.
