Admin Guide



Describe the issue: 
We currently have no general section that describes how to configure Plug-ins. There are some descriptions inside the sections that describes the plug-ins. However, a general section for CLI and GUI would be useful. We could link for general details there instead of repeating details, such as old-/new-style configuration everywhere.

For the CLI, there are a lot of general details, e. g. in
https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_directory_server/10/html-single/administration_guide/#Modifying_the_Attribute_List-cmd

For the GUI, we should additonally recommend that users configure plug-ins using the Advanced editor, instead of the "Arguments" fields. The advanced editor shows the new-style attributes, which take always take precedence over the plugin arg style attributes-



Additional Information:
There will be an entry in the DS 10.1.1 Release Notes that the new style parameters have a higher priority together with an advice that users should use the Advanced editor. We should implement this general content before GA, then we can link it in the RN.
