public enum class DirectorySynchronizationOptions

Member nameDescription

If this flag is not present, all of the values, up to a server-specified limit, in a multi-valued attribute are returned when any value changes. If this flag is present, only the changed values are returned.


No flags are set.


If this flag is not present, the caller must have the right to replicate changes. If this flag is present, the caller requires no rights, but is allowed to see only objects and attributes that are accessible to the caller.


Return parents before children, when parents would otherwise appear later in the replication stream.


Do not return private data in the search results.
