The effective rights feature can be used to obtain the following information:
Rights information, including entry level rights, attribute level rights and logging.
Permissions for write, self write add, and self write delete.
Logging information for debugging access control problems.
To use the effective rights feature, you must have the access control rights to use the effective rights control and read access to the aclRights attribute.
If a proxy control is attached to an effective rights control-based search operation, the effective rights operation is authorized as the proxy user. Therefore the proxy user needs to have the right to use the effective rights control. The entries that the proxy user has the right to search and view are returned.
