Oracle Unified Directory - LDIF Connection Handler

LDIF Connection Handler

The LDIF Connection Handler is used to process changes in the server using internal operations, where the changes to process are read from an LDIF file.

The connection handler periodically looks for the existence of a new file, processes the changes contained in that file as internal operations, and writes the result to an output file with comments indicating the result of the processing. NOTE: By default LDIF Connection Handler operations are not logged because they are internal operations. If you want to log these operations, allow internal logging in the access log publisher.

Parent Component

The LDIF Connection Handler component inherits from the Connection Handler
