Adding a Directory Object

The following code example adds an organizationalUnit object named DSMLSamples to the LDAP directory.

<se:Envelope xmlns:se="">
    <se:Body xmlns="urn:oasis:names:tc:DSML:2:0:core">
        <batchRequest xmlns="urn:oasis:names:tc:DSML:2:0:core"
            <addRequest dn="ou=DSMLSamples,dc=fabrikam,dc=com">
                <attr name="objectClass">

The se:Envelope and se:Body SOAP elements enclose the DSML payload. The first element of the DSML payload, batchRequest, is the mandatory top-level element for all DSML V2 requests. The addRequest element creates the new object with a distinguished name of "ou=DSMLSamples,dc=fabrikam,dc=com", with an attribute named objectClass that is set to a value of organizationalUnit.
