      Description

      Using inheritedFromDNCollectiveAttributeSubentry you can effectively copy an attribute from another entry (via inheritFromDNAttribute). However the attribute type cannot be changed during this process.

      It would be useful if we could add a rename option.

      e.g. the user requirement is to have a user's description attribute list all the names (cn) of any groups the entry is a member of. The following subentry is able to get most of the way there, but the group's cn becomes the user's cn...

      dn: cn=Simple,dc=example,dc=com
      cn: Simple
      collectiveConflictBehavior: merge-real-and-virtual
      inheritAttribute: cn
      inheritFromDNAttribute: isMemberOf
      objectClass: top
      objectClass: subentry
      objectClass: inheritedCollectiveAttributeSubentry
      objectClass: inheritedFromDNCollectiveAttributeSubentry
      subtreeSpecification: { base "ou=People" }
