Description Mickaël Guessant 2006-01-13 16:14:07 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; fr; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051111 Firefox/1.5

Description of problem:
Set based access rules are not working with current OpenLDAP version packaged in RHEL4 (2.2.13-4), they are simply ignored.

For example, the following rule does not work :
access to dn.regex="[^,]+,ou=functions,(.+),dc=root$"
  by set="user/fullAccess & [TRUE]" read

This bug was fixed in the official OpenLDAP 2.2.16 release, 
in the servers/slapd/sets.c file, see :

I backported this patch in OpenLDAP 2.2.13 and rebuilt the RPM. We checked
that this new RPM actually fixes the issue.

See attached file for exact patch content.
