Mutli-valued attribute to multi-valued attribute
We want to synchronize a multi-valued attribute (created by our own) to a
multi-valued attribute in the other edirectory store. But when we are
adding attributes we only have the changed values. The previous one is
lost. When deleting one value in the Identity Vault then it removes the
attribute from the object.
Any ideas ?

...Query a multivalued attribute and store part of each value in a single valued string/attribute
Hello hello again,
so I am trying to cook something again and obviously I am failing.
I have a mutlivalued attribute in eDirectory and I need to store a part
from each value into a single valued attribute.
- value1: 001-I
- value2: 002-D
- value3: 003-M
I need the I and the D and the M and store in a single valued attribute
I managed to query the destination user to get the attribute I want from
the user ... WOHOO :-)
Yet everythin after fails
Here is what I cooked up:

In order to add additional attributes to a User object I have created an

to change this attribute to a multi-valued case ignore string.
I usually use Designer to do work such as this but, as I'm having some
problems, what I describe here is done with iManager (to remove Designer
from the equation).
There was one object in my tree utilising this auxiliary class (we're
still in development) which I have deleted. I then deleted the aux...How to tell if an Attribute can hold multi-valued or single valued
If it already populated with data, it is easy to tell.
But what if it does not have data? How can you tell?
You would have to check the schema programatically. There is an attribute on the schema called 'isSingleValued' that will tell you if the attribute is multi-valued or not.

Perplexing one here, we have a JDBC driver that pulls certain info from

What we are finding in implementation is that several of the attributes
are becoming multivalued. (i.e. ou, L, title and givenName all have two
entries, the new one and the old one) . What I want to do with the
driver is set it up so it overwrites the existing value, not
