In this case it would probably be a good idea to think about "forward
compatibility" and define a new AUX objectclass bringing in
'ipaDomainResolutionOrder' instead of extending two separate

desire to carry the override in an easy and clean way.

I agree.

Now the most difficult question remains... How to name this objectclass.
I personally am out of ideas but will try my best to come up with
something meaningful.

Try to describe what the option ultimately does with as few words as


I was thinking about this and since we are performing name qualification
(short-name -> fully-qualified name incl. domain/realm part), I would
like to propose the following naming schema:

objectlasses: ( OID_TBD NAME ipaNameQualificationData Desc 'data used
for short name qualification data' SUP top AUXILIARY MAY
(ipaNameQualificationDomainList) X-ORIGIN 'IPA 4.5' )

attributeTypes: ( OID_TBD NAME 'ipaNameQualificationDomainList' DESC
'List of domains used to qualify user short name' EQUALITY
X-ORIGIN 'IPA v4.5' )

Let me know if you are ok with this or am I overengineering the names?

I would like to solve this quickly so that I can finish the design and
start implementation.

I was thinking that we can use acronyms here to make it less of a
mouthful and also more easily recognizable:
My idea is:
- ipaNameQualificationData -> ipaFQDNPolicies
- ipaNameQualificationDomainList -> ipaFQDNCheckOrder

TBH I liked ipaDomainResolutionOrder the best, both ipaNameQualificationDomainList and ipaFQDNCheckOrder sound overengineered to me :-)

If ipaDomainResolutionOrder is not good enough, we could draw some inspiration from resolv.conf and use e.g. ipaDomainSearchList.
