Item12366: Sorting of LDAP output disabled

Priority: Normal
Current State: Confirmed

Last Change By: GeorgeClark
Sorting of the LDAP output seems to have been disabled deliberately in one of the last version (tested with version 16128 from 2012-11-29). Neither the release notes nor the syntax documentation mention this.

LdapNgPlugin/ line 153:
#@entries = $search->sorted(@theSort); SMELL: out of order

Yes this has to be disabled because Net::LDAP isn't able to sort entries found while following references. These all are gathered in one @list doing sub-queries. Calling the Net::LDAP::Search::sorted() method will then discard some or even all previously found entries when the last sub-query was empty. This can only be solved by "borrowing" code from Net::LDAP::Search and make it work on all entries found, not only on some.

For now I will disable the call to sorted as not returning any result is even worse.
