    I’m testing OpenDJ REST interface and for that purpose I’ve modified the json config file under opendj/config/rest2ldap/endpoints/api to reflect my DN:

    "subResources": {
                    "users": {
                        "type": "collection",
                        "dnTemplate": "ou=people,dc=lugano,dc=ch",
                        "resource": "frapi:opendj:rest2ldap:user:1.0",
                        "namingStrategy": {
                            "type": "clientDnNaming",
                            "dnAttribute": "uid"
                    "groups": {
                        "type": "collection",
                        "dnTemplate": "ou=groups,dc=lugano,dc=ch",
                        "resource": "frapi:opendj:rest2ldap:group:1.0",
                        "namingStrategy": {
                            "type": "clientDnNaming",
                            "dnAttribute": "cn"

    Then I added person object with the following LDIF:

    dn: cn=Mario Rossi,ou=people,dc=lugano,dc=ch
    objectClass: top
    objectClass: inetOrgPerson
    objectClass: organizationalPerson
    objectClass: person
    mail: [email protected]
    sn: Rossi
    cn: Mario Rossi
    givenName: Mario
    employeeNumber: 36349
    uid: mario.rossi

    When I try to access it with URL https://localhost:8443/api/users/mario.rossi I get the following error:

    "code": 404,
    "reason": "Not Found",
    "message": "No Such Entry: The search base entry 'uid=mario.rossi,ou=people,dc=lugano,dc=ch' does not exist"

    Any suggestion on how to fix it?

    Thanks in advance, Enrico



    The DN of the entry is cn=Mario Rossi,ou=people,dc=lugano,dc=ch, but your configuration points rest2ldap to search for uid=mario.rossi,ou=people,dc=lugano,dc=ch. You can see these are different names.

    Try a URL like this: https://localhost:8443/api/users?_queryFilter=uid+eq+"mario.rossi"&_prettyPrint=true



    Many thanks Jean-Noel,

    it looks better as now I’m getting a HTTP 200 OK but the body contains the following:

      "result" : [ ],
      "resultCount" : 0,
      "pagedResultsCookie" : null,
      "totalPagedResultsPolicy" : "NONE",
      "totalPagedResults" : -1,
      "remainingPagedResults" : -1

    Still no information on the requested object :-(



    OK, solved.

    I had to change the person dn to uid=mario.rossi,ou=people,dc=lugano,dc=ch to make it work.

    Greetings, Enrico
