Object class type
Allowed attributes


Object class to be added to a group entity to give the group a status attribute, which can be active, inactive, or deleted.

The following table lists the attribute's values and their meanings:

Status Attribute Values
Value Description
active The group is active and its users may use services enabled by the overlay of service-specific object classes and the service state as indicated by the particular status attribute for that service.
inactive Group is inactive. The group users may not use any services granted by service-specific object classes. This state overrides individual service status set using the service's status attributes.
deleted Group is marked as deleted. The group may remain in this state within the directory for some time (pending purging of deleted groups). Service requests for all groups marked as deleted will return permanent failures.

A missing value implies status is active. An illegal value is treated as inactive.
