Use any of the following methods to configure soft deletes on the Directory Server.
Using a soft-delete policy and global configuration property
Configure soft deletes by creating a soft-delete policy and a global configuration property. The soft-delete policy enables the feature on the server, while the global configuration property sets the controls used for the soft-delete requests. To enter a soft delete request, the ldapmodify or ldapdelete command requires the --useSoftDelete option. A delete request that does not have the --useSoftDelete option is treated as a hard delete, which permanently removes the entry.
For more information, see Configuring soft deletes as a global configuration.
Using connection criteria
Configure soft deletes by defining connection criteria within a client connection policy. Any clients that meet the criteria have their deletes processed as soft deletes.
For more information, see Configuring soft deletes by connection criteria.
Using request criteria
Configure soft deletes by defining request criteria within a client connection policy. Any client requests that meet the criteria have their deletes processed as soft deletes.
For more information, see Configuring soft deletes by request criteria.Note:
You can define both connection criteria and request criteria. When both criteria exist within a soft-delete policy, connection criteria is processed first, then request criteria.
