Static Groups

Static groups explicitly name their member entries. For example, a group of directory administrators would name the specific people who formed part of that group, as shown in the following illustration.

Figure shows logic of static group

The following LDIF extract shows how the members of this static group would be defined.

dn: cn=Directory Administrators, ou=Groups, dc=example,dc=com
member: uid=kvaughan, ou=People, dc=example,dc=com
member: uid=rdaugherty, ou=People, dc=example,dc=com
member: uid=hmiller, ou=People, dc=example,dc=com

Static groups specify the DN of each member of the group. Static groups use one of the following object class and attribute pairs:

The member attribute and uniqueMember attribute contain the DN for every entry that is a member of the group. The uniqueMember attribute value for the DN is optionally followed by a hash, #, and a unique identifier label to guarantee uniqueness.
