Make sure that any attributes that are part of the new object class are defined before creating the object class.

Creating a new object class is similar to creating a new attribute. To create a new object class:

  1. Start the administrative console.
  2. In the top-level navigation menu, select LDAP Schema.
  3. Click the Object Classes tab, and then in the Actions list, select New Object Class.
    A screen capture showing the "Actions" list in the "Object Classes" tab with the "New Object Class" option highlighted.
  4. Enter the properties for the new object class.
  5. In the Attributes box, filter the types of attributes required for the new object class. Click the right arrow to move it into the Required or the Optional box.

    All custom attributes appear at the bottom of the list in the Attributes box.
