Description Nalin Dahyabhai 2008-11-21 22:38:45 UTC
In order to avoid mutual recursion-triggered problems, it would be useful to be able to tell whether or not a particular request was done on behalf of a connected client or another plugin.  Currently, I don't think we have a way that a plugin can do that as part of the public SLAPI.

This exposes the internal operation flag publicly as SLAPI_OP_FLAG_INTERNAL.  The existing slapi_operation_is_flag_set() can be used to check an operation for this new flag.  This flag and the old function will both need to be added to the Plug-In Programmer's Guide.

Checked into ldapserver (HEAD).  Thanks to Noriko for her review!

Checking in ldap/servers/slapd/slapi-plugin.h;
/cvs/dirsec/ldapserver/ldap/servers/slapd/slapi-plugin.h,v  <--  slapi-plugin.h
new revision: 1.38; previous revision: 1.37
done
Checking in ldap/servers/slapd/slapi-private.h;
/cvs/dirsec/ldapserver/ldap/servers/slapd/slapi-private.h,v  <--  slapi-private.h
new revision: 1.33; previous revision: 1.32
done

Not sure QE can verify this bug - also is it a duplicate of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=439907?

Comment 4 Nathan Kinder 2009-03-19 15:17:42 UTC
This can not be verified by QE, as it is an API addition.  Marking as verified.
