     I needed to resctrict the scope of the following plugins:

         dn: cn=ipaUniqueID uniqueness,cn=plugins,cn=config

         dn: cn=IPA Unique IDs,cn=IPA UUID,cn=plugins,cn=confi
         ipauuidscope: cn=accounts,dc=idm,dc=lab,dc=bos,dc=redhat,dc=com

         dn: cn=Posix IDs,cn=Distributed Numeric Assignment
         dnaScope: cn=accounts,dc=idm,dc=lab,dc=bos,dc=redhat,dc=com

         dn: cn=MemberOf Plugin,cn=plugins,cn=config

     In fact I need them to not modify the added entry when it is added
     under "cn=staged users,cn=accounts,cn=provisioning,$SUFFIX".
     Now is it possible to limit those plugins scope to the
     'cn=accounts' part of the tree ? I guess not.
     If it is not possible, a solution is to make the scope
     multi-valued attributes or to introduce a new config attribute
     '*notInScope' also multi-valued.
     A problem is the 'cn=ipaUniqueID uniqueness' that rely on the
     'attribute uniqueness' plugin with a argv[ ], not really
     convenient to pass 2 multivalued attributes.

     If anyone is having others solutions it would help me a lot :-)


The easiest solution IMO is to not treat staging area as an account area, i.e
instead of cn=staging, cn=accounts, dc=... I suggest saving users in cn=users,
cn=staging, dc=...
Actually, this almost exactly the DN I wrote in the RFE:


Proposed containers are:

cn=staged users,cn=accounts,cn=provisioning,$SUFFIX
cn=deleted users,cn=accounts,cn=provisioning,$SUFFIX
I believe we want to enforce that attribute like 'uid' and 'ipaUniqueID' are unique in both

cn=deleted users,cn=accounts,cn=provisioning,$SUFFIX



A solution is to make attribute uniqueness covering both parts. But is that enough ? For example is it required that attribute uniqueness run also on 'cn=alt,$SUFFIX' ?

An other solution is to exclude some parts. Like exlude 'cn=staged users,cn=account,cn=provisioning, $SUFFIX'.

This way if in future we will have some staging for other objects (for whatever
reason) we will create containers under common "staging" area.
I would also argue that "deleted" should not be under accounts.
Agreed. This will also make the plugin configuration (tree exclusion) easier.
