Followed instructions at [Gluu Server 4.2 Docs](https://gluu.org/docs/gluu-server/4.2/admin-guide/attribute/#custom-attributes), but when I try to add the attributes to OxTrust, I get the errors: Attribute type 'projAttr1' definition not belong to list of allowed object classes Failed to update attribute 'Attribute 1' Here is my custom attribute file (/opt/opendj/config/schema/77-customAttributes.ldif) ``` dn: cn=schema objectClass: top objectClass: ldapSubentry objectClass: subschema cn: schema attributeTypes: ( 1.3.6.1.4.1.48710.1.3.1501 NAME 'projAttr1' EQUALITY booleanMatch SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.7 X-ORIGIN 'Gluu custom attribute' ) attributeTypes: ( 1.3.6.1.4.1.48710.1.3.1502 NAME 'projAttr2' EQUALITY caseIgnoreMatch SUBSTR caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.15 X-ORIGIN 'Gluu custom attribute' ) objectClasses: ( 1.3.6.1.4.1.48710.1.4.101 NAME 'gluuCustomPerson' SUP ( top ) AUXILIARY MAY ( telephoneNumber $ mobile $ carLicense $ facsimileTelephoneNumber $ departmentNumber $ employeeType $ cn $ st $ manager $ street $ postOfficeBox $ employeeNumber $ preferredDeliveryMethod $ roomNumber $ secretary $ homePostalAddress $ l $ postalCode $ description $ title $ projAttr1 $ projAttr2) X-ORIGIN 'Gluu - Custom persom objectclass' ) ``` I restarted opendj after the change above using: systemctl restart opendj I even tried restarting the server without any success.

The log at /opt/opendj/logs/access shows the following: ``` [19/Jul/2020:20:35:53 +0000] SEARCH REQ conn=0 op=187 msgID=188 base="ou=attributes,o=gluu" scope=sub filter="(&(&(objectClass=top)(objectClass=gluuAttribute))(&(gluuAttributeName=projAttr1)(oxMultivaluedAttribute=false)))" attrs="gluuAttributeName,oxMultivaluedAttribute,salt,gluuSAML1URI,gluuSAML2URI,gluuAttributeViewType,displayName,lifetime,description,gluuTooltip,inum,oxAuthClaimName,seeAlso,oxSourceAttribute,oxNameIdType,urn,oxValidation,gluuAttributeEditType,gluuAttributeOrigin,oxSCIMCustomAttribute,gluuAttributeType,gluuStatus,gluuAttributeUsageType" [19/Jul/2020:20:35:53 +0000] SEARCH RES conn=0 op=187 msgID=188 result=0 nentries=0 etime=2 [19/Jul/2020:20:35:53 +0000] SEARCH REQ conn=0 op=188 msgID=189 base="cn=schema" scope=base filter="(objectClass=*)" attrs="objectClasses,attributeTypes" [19/Jul/2020:20:35:53 +0000] SEARCH RES conn=0 op=188 msgID=189 result=0 nentries=1 etime=17 [19/Jul/2020:20:35:53 +0000] SEARCH REQ conn=0 op=189 msgID=190 base="cn=schema" scope=base filter="(objectClass=*)" attrs="objectClasses,attributeTypes" [19/Jul/2020:20:35:53 +0000] SEARCH RES conn=0 op=189 msgID=190 result=0 nentries=1 etime=11 [19/Jul/2020:20:35:54 +0000] SEARCH REQ conn=0 op=190 msgID=191 base="ou=configuration,o=gluu" scope=base filter="(objectClass=*)" attrs="gluuSamlEnabled,userPassword,displayName,oxTrustStoreConf,gluuHTTPstatus,gluuConfigurationPollingInterval,description,gluuDSstatus,oxTrustCacheRefreshServerIpAddress,oxLogConfigLocation,inum,gluuHostname,gluuPassportEnabled,oxIDPAuthentication,gluuStatus,gluuSPTR,gluuScimEnabled,oxTrustStoreCert,gluuManageIdentityPermission,gluuOrgProfileMgt,gluuVdsCacheRefreshLastUpdateCount,gluuSslExpiry,oxSmtpConfiguration,gluuVdsCacheRefreshEnabled,gluuConfigurationDnsServer,gluuMaxLogSize,oxCacheConfiguration,gluuVdsCacheRefreshPollingInterval,oxAuthenticationMode,passwordResetAllowed,gluuVdsCacheRefreshLastUpdate,gluuVdsCacheRefreshProblemCount,gluuVDSstatus,oxTrustAuthenticationMode,gluuRadiusEnabled,gluuLastUpdate,oxTrustEmail,oxLogViewerConfig,oxDocumentStoreConfiguration" [19/Jul/2020:20:35:54 +0000] SEARCH RES conn=0 op=190 msgID=191 result=0 nentries=1 etime=1 [19/Jul/2020:20:35:59 +0000] SEARCH REQ conn=0 op=191 msgID=192 base="ou=oxtrust,ou=configuration,o=gluu" scope=base filter="(objectClass=*)" attrs="oxRevision" [19/Jul/2020:20:35:59 +0000] SEARCH RES conn=0 op=191 msgID=192 result=0 nentries=1 etime=0 ``` Looks like opendj is having issues finding this attribute, but doesn't throw any errors when restarted.

``` When I try to add the attributes to OxTrust, I get the errors: Attribute type 'projAttr1' definition not belong to list of allowed object classes Failed to update attribute 'Attribute 1' ``` Can you upload and a screenshot somewhere and reference it in this issue? I used your ldif and tried in both 4.1.1 and 4.2.0 and it worked fine. I wonder if you missed something when you were registering the attribute. I was using Ubuntu 20, but I don't think that makes a difference here.

Hi Michael, Here is the screenshot. Strangely, when I replace the attribute names with the original ones, I see the issue, but when I use the placeholders I showed above (projAttr1), it goes through just fine.

Does the "Name" attribute match exactly the name you have in LDAP, including case?

Yes. It matches exactly.

Does your attribute name contain any non alphanumeric text?

({ STATIC_URL }}img/favicon.ico) No. It's plain ASCII text "volMonitoring"

So it works when you call it `projAttr1` ... but not when you call it `volMonitoring` ?

({ STATIC_URL }}img/favicon.ico) Yes. Unfortunately. I'm guessing it might turn to be something simple.

I rebuilt the file by hand and it seems to be working fine now. I'm suspecting it must have something to do with the copy I made. I've had it in the past where Windows messes up line endings of a file when moving between instances. Thank you very much for looking into it on a Sunday Michael. Closing the issue now.
