3.1.2 Return Attributes

Directory servers may be configured to return a default set of attributes for each record matching a query if the query specifies none. The variable eudc-default-return-attributes controls the return attributes you want to see, if different from the server defaults.

— Variable: eudc-default-return-attributes

A list of the default attributes to extract from directory entries. If set to the symbol all then all available attributes are returned. A value of nil, the default, means to return the default attributes as configured in the server.

The server may return several matching records to a query. Some of the records may however not contain all the attributes you requested. You can discard those records.

— User Option: eudc-strict-return-matches

If non-nil, entries that do not contain all the requested return attributes are ignored. Default is t.
