Technical Summary This document specifies an extension to the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) to allow the client to read the target entry of an update operation (e.g., Add, Delete, Modify, ModifyDN). The extension utilizes controls attached to update requests to request and return copies of the target entry. One request control, called the Pre-Read request control, indicates that a copy of the entry before application of update is to be returned. Another control, called the Post-Read request control, indicates that a copy of the entry after application of the update is to be returned. Each request control has a corresponding response control used to return the entry. To ensure proper isolation, the controls are processed as an atomic part of the update operation. Working Group Summary This document is the work of an individual submitter. It was discussed informally on the LDAPEXT working group mailing list. Protocol Quality This document was reviewed for the IESG by Ted Hardie.
