    Changelog for OpenLdap


    Hi,
    I have a ldap driver that is conneted to an OpenLdap server from IDM,
    thus changes in IDM vault are written to the OpenLdap server.
    Because another driver has access to create objects in the OpenLdap
    server, I want the ldap driver to raise an event in publisher channel
    whenever an object has changed or created in the OpenLdap server.
    The ldap driver should then somehow trigger a resync in the subscriber
    channel afterward. There are 2 publisher options:

    1. Ldap search method, which is very slow and does not support
    loopback prevention
    2. Changelog overlay contributed by Sebastian Rieger.

    What is your experience with the changelog option? Is it stable? is it
    scalable? Good performance?

    Best regards
    Thanh

    Use changelog.

    Why? Via what logic do you want a resync to happen?

    That'd be a question for the OpenLDAP community, I guess.

    While I don't have recent direct experience I've heard that it performs adequately for most applications.
    I used it 10 ish years ago and it worked fine for changes to a 10K object directory. In theory it hasn't gotten worse

    That sounds great. I have a 30k+ object directory that I want to apply
    the changelog on, and the size of the directory increases each day. So
    performace has a big impact. Right now I'm trying to get the module
    installed.
    The latest version I have seen so far is version 2.4.21:

    Do any of you know if there exists a newer version?

    Best regards

    The latest openldap version appears to be 2.4.40. I would look there.
