You can configure the changelog to capture soft-delete changes to entries so that external clients, such as PingDataSync Server, can access these changes.
ds-soft-delete-entry attribute represents an entry that has been
soft-deleted and is part of the source entry passed into the changelog to indicate the
entry has been soft-deleted.
All soft-delete operations appear in the changelog as regular DELETE operations. When a
soft delete occurs, the resulting changelog entry includes a
ds-soft-delete-entry-dn operational attribute with the value of the
soft-deleted entry DN. PingDataSync Server recognizes the
ds-soft-delete-entry-dn attribute and does nothing with it.
The changelog backend
determines whether MODIFY or DELETE operations of soft-deleted entries appear in the
changelog. This property is disabled by default.
