Hello guys,

I'm customizing a SOAP Driver and I have a problem with associations after merge occurs.

That is the process I'm following:

1) I create an ADD event for every user returned by the SOAP APP.
2) For every ADD, the driver perfom a matching in the Matching policies.
3) If a match is found, the driver query the matched object attributes to perform a merge with the new ones.

At this point, I can see that the driver added an empty association to the object (previously the object was not associated):

I need to remove that empty association, but after several tries I failed.

I tried a remove destination attribute value with DirXML-Associations, but after filling the structured parameter values the operation gives a syntax error because of the empty value of association:

<modify class-name="User" dest-dn="\IDVDS\hipra\partners\bla@bla.com" dest-entry-id="46866" from-merge="true">
      <modify-attr attr-name="DirXML-Associations">
          <value type="structured">
            <component name="nameSpace">1</component>
            <component name="volume">system\driverset\DrvWebserviceCRM</component>
            <component name="path"/>
Can anybody help me?

Thanks in advance,
Rodrigo Cano
