What the Installation Must Do
Applications that extend the schema, must apply updates as described in the following procedure.
To apply updates when extending the schema
- Add the new attributes.
- Add the new classes.
- Add the new attributes to classes.
- Trigger a cache reload.
New attributes referenced in Step 3 must be referred to by its OID because the new attribute name is not present in the schema cache at this point.
Step 4 is unnecessary if the extensions will not be used immediately; the extensions will appear in the schema cache in approximately 5 minutes, depending on system load. For more information about the schema cache and how to trigger a cache reload, see Updating the Schema Cache.
