I would guess that this is probably because you're not binding as the
Directory Manager, but rather the admin user, who doesn't have
permission to see the effective rights of other entries.

You are perfectly right. It just worked when I tried as the Direcotory Manager.
Thank you very much.

Now I have a question, is it possible to allow FDS to show the effective
rights of any entry in the server for any user (read access to the entry
permitting)? The documentation here:


suggests not. Are there plans for this to change? I ask as I am writing
an application for editing entries in FDS, and would like to customise
the display to only show those actions on an entry that the user can
actually make. I do not want to store the authentication credentials of
the Directory Manager within the application.
