This sounds sensible, thank you.

(re-posting to ipa-users)
For the record and other interested parties:
Please keep in mind that this is NOT intended as an audit mechanism. We
already have audit in LDAP server and audit is explicitly out of scope of this

This should provide hooks so vanilla IPA as shipped in packages can be easily
integrated with third-party systems which are present all over the place.

Jan Cholasta identified few object types which he thinks are interesting from
the hook(s) perspective:
user, group, host, hostgroup, service

Current line of thinking was about adding hooks into IPA framework so we are
not risking destabilizing or slowing down the DS.

If we want to monitor generic LDAP we could use syncrepl to stay outside of
DS. As far as I understood Honza this has interesting problems because the
consumer of the notifications from LDAP would have to undestand the relations
between IPA LDAP objects etc., which can be quite complicated.

For this reason we were thinking about kind of limited approach where hooks
are called when using CLI/WebUI/API but not when direct LDAP modifications are

Would that work for you?
