Permission Syntax

An ACI permission statement has this syntax:

allow|deny (right1, right2 ...)

Rights define the operations you can perform on directory data. In an ACI statement, rights is a list of comma-separated keywords enclosed within parentheses.

Rights are granted independently of one another. This means, for example, that a user who is granted add rights but not delete rights can create an entry but cannot delete an entry. When you are planning the access control policy for your directory, ensure that you grant rights in a way that makes sense for users. For example, it might not make sense to grant write permission without granting read and search permissions.
