The plugin intercepts delete and modifyDN operations and updates any references to the target entry. For a delete operation, any references to the target entry are removed. For modifyDN operations, any references to the target entry are updated to reflect the new DN of the entry.

The plugin is similar to the Directory Server Referential Integrity plugin but does not have an asynchronous mode. When enabled on the PingDirectoryProxy server, the client response is delayed until the referential integrity processing is complete.

For PingDirectoryProxy server deployments not using entry balancing and using directory server external servers, use the Referential Integrity plugin on the directory server.


An equality index must be defined on all attributes referenced within the Global Referential Integrity plugin across all external servers.
