Clarification on DAL Attribute Flags

Folks,

On the definition of an attributes in the the DAL, there are two flags, "View" and "Read". These should be similar, I am certain they cause some different behavior but the documentation seems unclear how they are differentiated.

Right now I am looking at a IDVault.globalQuery() that is taking a long time, possibly because it is returning all attribute values when I just need a list of DNs. I was thinking perhaps that turning one of those checkboxes off might change how that method makes it's query.

Any thoughts are appreciated.

Thanks
Rob

I haven't seen these flags make a difference.

Make sure, that the right attributes are edir-indexed.

Is that client or server? If client, try to narrow it down to a LDAP
query without to many results. Ideally move queries into the
pre-activity mapping where possible.

Re: Clarification on DAL Attribute Flags

As I understand the documentation Read is required for the query to work while View is for the display of the value.
Read might include View but that has to be tried out since it is not clear.
Doubt it will have any impact on performance though.
