Oracle Fusion Middleware Administration Guide for Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition

Example of a Managed Role Definition

To create a role for all marketing staff, use the following ldapmodify command:

$ ldapmodify -a -h host1 -p 1389 -D cn=admin,cn=Administrators,cn=config -w -
dn: cn=Marketing,ou=marketing,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
objectclass: top
objectclass: LDAPsubentry
objectclass: nsRoleDefinition
objectclass: nsSimpleRoleDefinition
objectclass: nsManagedRoleDefinition
cn: Marketing
description: managed role for marketing staff

Notice that the nsManagedRoleDefinition object class inherits from the LDAPsubentry, nsRoleDefinition, and nsSimpleRoleDefinition object classes.

Assign the role to a marketing staff member who is named Bob by updating his entry as follows:

$ ldapmodify -h host1 -p 1389 -D cn=admin,cn=Administrators,cn=config -w -
dn: cn=Bob Arnold,ou=marketing,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
changetype: modify
add: nsRoleDN
nsRoleDN: cn=Marketing,ou=marketing,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com

The nsRoleDN attribute indicates that the entry is a member of a managed role. The managed role is identified by the DN of its role definition. To allow users to modify their own nsRoleDN attribute, but to prevent users from adding or removing the nsManagedDisabledRole, add the following ACI:

aci: (targetattr="nsRoleDN")(targattrfilters="add=nsRoleDN: 
del=nsRoleDN:(!(nsRoleDN=cn=nsManagedDisabledRole,dc=example, dc=com)") 
(version3.0;aci "allow mod of nsRoleDN by self except for critical values"; 
allow(write) userdn="ldap:///self";)
