Deleting an Attribute or Value

Each entry in a directory consists of attributes. An attribute comprises the attribute type identification, for example, telephoneNumber, and one or more attribute values, for example, 02 9923 1234.


This option allows you to delete an attribute type or attribute value. If the value deleted is the last value of a given attribute, the attribute is also deleted. It is not possible to delete a mandatory attribute, or the last value of a mandatory attribute.


Note:  You can only delete attribute types in the Table Editor.

1.  Select the entry in the Directory Information Tree (DIT) from which you want to delete an attribute type or value.
