Let's say you provide format="| $cn | $telephonenumber |" to %LDAP{...}%. If Joe Schmoe matches the filter but does not have the telephonenumber attribute, the resulting line for hime is:
| Joe Schmoe | $telephonenumber |
You can eliminate ugly $telephonenumber in the result by giving clear="$telephonenumber" to %LDAP{...}%.

This is OK but it's cumbersome to specify clear. There should be an automatic way.

With above in mind, {Plugins}{LdapNgPlugin}{AutoClear} configuration parameter will be introduced. If it's true, $something in the format parameter will be processed as follows.

  • If the attributed named "something" exists in the current record, $something is replaced with that
  • $dollar is replaced with a special string
  • The standard special tokens ($percnt, $quot, etc.) are processed
  • $something is replaced with the null string ("")
  • The special string is replaced with $.
