When a REST resource type is set to create new entries using a relative distinguished
name (RDN) attribute other than
entryUUID, referential integrity issues can
result when the entry's RDN attribute is edited.
To preserve the referential integrity of group memberships in such a scenario, enable the referential identity plugin.
Enable the referential integrity plugin with the following command.
bin/dsconfig set-plugin-prop --plugin-name "Referential Integrity" \ --set enabled:true
After you enable the plugin, group memberships are preserved.
