The Directory Server provides two useful changelog configuration properties:
changelog-max-before-after-values. Setting this property to a non-zero value
causes all of the old values and all of the new values (up to the specified maximum) for
each changed attribute to be stored in the changelog entry. The values will be stored in
ds-changelog-after-valuesattributes on the changelog entry. These attributes are not present by default.Note: The
changelog-max-before-after-valuesproperty can be expensive for attributes with hundreds or thousands of values, such as a group entry.
If any attribute has more than the maximum number of values, their names and number of before/after values will be stored in the
ds-changelog-attr-exceeded-max-values-countattribute on the changelog entry. This is a multi-valued attribute whose format is:
attr=attributeName,beforeCount=100,afterCount=101where "attributeName" is the name of the attribute and the "beforeCount" and "afterCount" are the total number of values for that attribute before and after the change, respectively. This attribute indicates that you need to reset the
changelog-max-before-after-valuesproperty to a higher value. When this attribute is set, an alert will be generated.Note: If the number of values for an attribute exceeds the maximum value set by the
changelog-max-before-after-valuesproperty, then those values will not be stored.
changelog-include-key-attribute. This property is used for correlation attributes
that need to be synchronized across servers, such as
uid. It causes the current (after-change) value of the specified attributes to be recorded in the
ds-changelog-entry-key-attr-valuesattribute on the changelog entry. This applies for all change types. On a DELETE operation, the values are from the entry before they were deleted.
The key values will be recorded on every change and override the settings configured in
