Two important points about soft deletes and the changelog are as follows:
- All soft-delete operations appear in the changelog and appear as a regular DELETE operation.
When a soft delete occurs, the resulting changelog entry will include a
ds-soft-delete-entry-dnoperational attribute with the value of the soft-deleted entry DN. If you are using PingDataSync Server, it does recognize the
ds-soft-delete-entry-dnattribute and does not do anything with it.
