Oracle Fusion Middleware Administration Guide for Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition

Deleting an Attribute Value

You can use DSCC to perform this task. For information, see Directory Service Control Center Interface and the DSCC online help.

The following example shows how to delete an attribute entirely and to delete only one value of a multi valued attribute:

$ ldapmodify -h host1 -p 1389 -D cn=admin,cn=Administrators,cn=config -w -
Enter bind password:
dn: uid=bjensen,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
changetype: modify
delete: facsimileTelephoneNumber
delete: cn
cn: Babs Morris

When using the delete syntax without specifying an attribute: value pair, all values of the attribute are removed. If you specify an attribute: value pair, only that value is removed.
