Removes an array of Slapi_Value data values from an attribute in an entry.
#include "slapi-plugin.h" int slapi_entry_delete_values_sv( Slapi_Entry *e, const char *type, Slapi_Value **vals );
This function takes the following parameters:
Entry from which you want to delete values.
Attribute from which you want to delete values.
Array of Slapi_Value data values that you want to delete.
Returns LDAP_SUCCESS if the specified attribute and the array of Slapi_Value data values are deleted from the entry.
If the specified attribute contains a NULL value, the attribute is deleted from the attribute list and the function returns LDAP_NO_SUCH_ATTRIBUTE . Additionally, if the attribute is not found in the list of attributes for the specified entry, the function returns LDAP_NO_SUCH_ATTRIBUTE.
If there is an operational error during the processing of this call (such as a duplicate value found), the function will return LDAP_OPERATIONS_ERROR . If this occurs, please report the problem to Sun support services.
This function removes an attribute/value set from an entry. Notice that both the attribute and its Slapi_Value data values are removed from the entry. If you supply a Slapi_Value whose value is NULL, the function will delete the specified attribute from the entry. In either case, the function returns LDAP_SUCCESS.
The vals parameter can be NULL, in which case, this function does nothing.
