Use of attribute options in LDAP to express 'metadata' about directory attributes
CONVENER: Benn Oshrin
SCRIBE: Chris Phillips
# of ATTENDEES: ~12?
MAIN ISSUES DISCUSSED
Is there a way that this can be used to better explain/describe the value(s) contained within a given attribute and in turn, but used as the origin for other things in other areas (e.g. SAML representation of an object, JSON schema etc)
- Don't do anything that breaks anything
- Design would be generic and re-usable and not just within higher ed in some cases.
- multivalued attributes will have a unique for each value within the attribute and it can be different.
Some examples are:
In order to define an 'option' label, an RFC needs to be written, an OID requested from IANA, and a Best Current Practice (BCP) needs to be done
ACTIVITIES GOING FORWARD / NEXT STEPS
Enumerate the option lables we would want to sponsor for RFC definition
Determine how we should encode them
Publish an initial one (Lang makes a lot of sense), and work on the next most important ones.
Repeat until done.
