All records in the changelog are immediate children of the cn=changelog entry and are named with the changeNumber attribute. Changes are represented in the form documented in the draft-good-ldap-changelog specification with the targetDN attribute providing the distinguished name (DN) of the updated entry, the changeType attribute providing the type of operation (add, delete, modify, or modDN), and the changes attribute providing a base64-encoded representation of the attributes included in the entry (for add operations) or the changes made (for modify operations) in LDIF form. View the changes by decoding the encoded value using the base64 decode utility. The LDAP SDK for Java also provides support for parsing changelog entries.
