KB-8266: Can LDAP Proxy handle critical search extension?

Centrify DirectControl ,  

1 March,17 at 01:31 PM

Applies to: All versions of LDAP Proxy

Question:
When requesting data of using the pagedResult control, it works without problem. However if the control is made to be critical it returns a 'critical control unavailable in context' error.
For example, the following query works:
ldapsearch -x -h localhost -b dc=example,dc=com -D user@example.com -E 'pr=50' -W '(objectClass=posixAccount)

However it fails when making it critical:
ldapsearch -x -h localhost -b dc=example,dc=com -D user@example.com -E '!pr=50' -W '(objectClass=posixAccount)
Is there a technical limitation for this behavior? Or is there another reason for this result?

Answer:
Current version of LDAP Proxy does not support critical search extension ("!").
Please contact Technical Support if you would like to request for this feature as an RFE.
