Standard Record and Attribute Types

Plug-ins should support the standard record and attribute types described in “Record Type Constants” in the Reference chapter as appropriate for the data that the directory system provides and in accordance with the needs of OS X. Plug-ins should also honor the meta types described in that section. (Meta types are types that are created dynamically, such as a user’s current location.) Plug-ins should map the standard record and attribute types to the plug-in’s native record and attribute types.

Plug-ins can support as many native record and attribute types as they want.
