Please bear with me if this is already handled in a bug report or
something like that. I did a search on that docs, web and bugzilla but
didn't find an answer.
I am trying to write a simple post add operation plug-in that logs the
added entry to a change log file. But I am facing an issue that even
when the add operation fails due to any reason, the post operation
plug-in logs the changes which is logically incorrect. I am aware that a
post operation plug-in will run irrespective of whether the operation
was successful or failure. But I think there should be a way to know the
status of the operation from within the post-op plug-in i.e. through the
parameter block. I searched through the RedHat's plug-in programmer's
guide, but to no avail.
I found that the Parameter block structure has an integer variable
'pb_result_code' (slap.h:1395: int pb_result_code) which I believe
should store the result of the operation as set by the back end. I would
like to know if this is right and if so, how to access this variable
from the plug-in or is there a better way of finding the status of the
operation that I am not aware of.
Any help or pointers to the right document will be appreciated.
