IDM 6.0 with DS repo and explicit mapping, PATCH replace does nothing for case-insensitive attribute

      This is reproducible on IDM 6.0.x, but not on IDM 6.5.0.

      1. IDM 6.0.0 with DS 6.0.0 repository (embedded), with explicit mappings.

      2. Create a managed user with a givenName of "my-givenname".

      3. Do a PATCH replace to change the managed user's givenName to "my-givenName":

      $ curl  --header "Content-Type: application/json"  --header "X-OpenIDM-Username: openidm-admin"  --header "X-OpenIDM-Password: openidm-admin"  --request POST  --data '[{
        }]'   "http://localhost:8080/openidm/managed/user/4c3107d5-9601-4c09-a0aa-cc0913cb0488?_action=patch" | jq .

      => This completes successfully, but the resulting givenName is not actually updated. It is still "my-givenname". (problem)

      4. Repeat the test with IDM 6.5.0 with DS repository (embedded), with explicit mappings.
      => The PATCH replace results in givenName being updated to "my-givenName". (good)

      5. Repeat the test with IDM 6.0.0 with DS 6.5.0 repository (external), with explicit mappings.
      => The PATCH replace results in givenName not being updated. (problem)

      6. Updating DS 6.0.0 directly using ldapmodify or rest2ldap PATCH replace (DS REST, not IDM):
      => givenName is updated as expected.

      7. Back to the original test with IDM 6.0.0 with embedded DS 6.0.0 repo:

      • if the DS schema is modified for the givenName attribute, giving it a case-sensitive matching rule ("EQUALITY caseExactMatch").
        => Now the PATCH replace works, givenName is updated.
        BUT this change means that queries on givenName will also be case-sensitive.
