The variable name rdnattr can be misleading. It is only used to give
name of hte RDN in something that can be renamed. Compare this to
something like netgroups where the DN has no visible relationship to
content of the object (ipaUniqueId). Only those objects that define
rdnattr get a rename option (look at netgroups, for example).

rdnattr is always the primary key but not always defined. It should
probably be a boolean instead, rdn_is_primary_key or something a bit
more obvious. I can make that change here.


Updated patch. It seems I broke query a few months ago trying to
no white spaces in some names.

I did the rdnattr variable rename. Looking back at the changelog this
was meant to always match the primary key so lets remove the
that it doesn't. By doing it this way we get the pattern for free.


This is certainly better, but I still have a few concerns:

1. --rename is tied to the RDN change operation. I think this is wrong.
--rename should be available for all objects, not only when the object's
RDN attribute and primary key attribute are the same (so that we can
change the primary key of any object). Similarly, modrdn should be
triggered for all objects every time the RDN attribute changes, not only
when the object's RDN attribute and primary key attribute are the same
(so the DN is properly updated for all objects).

I don't know if this is in the scope of this patch, though.

Right, not in this scope. An entry where RDN != primary key doesn't need
--rename to do a rename, just a mod on whatever its "key" is. We can
fake this to have a consistent interface though. Please open a ticket.

Well, you have to do it using --setattr, which is not very user-friendly


2. In crud.Create/crud.Update, query is set for params which have the
ask_create/ask_update flag set. This is an error, as we are obviously
not querying LDAP with these params (it seems someone forgot to remove
the query=True keyword argument after copy-pasting from crud.Search).






Thanks, pushed to master and ipa-2-2
