Snap type:



This Snap renames an entry from a given old name to its new name. In the LDAP v2, this corresponds to the modify RDN operation that renames an entry within the same context (that is renaming a sibling). In the LDAP v3, this corresponds to the modify DN operation, which is like modify RDN, except that the old and new entries need not be in the same context.

  • Expected upstream Snaps: Upstream Snap can be given. File reader followed by any file parser  followed by Structure.
  • Expected downstream Snaps: Any file  Formatter followed by File Writer.
  • Expected input: Old name, New name
  • Expected output: This Snap will give the output data as status of entered New name that the Old name is renamed to New name or not.
