      I try to create a new entry thas has a mandatory binary attribute, for example an entry with objectClass=top, person and strongAuthenticationUser

      I set a value for each mandatory attributes which are cn, sn and userCertificate
      When I press Finish button in the New Entry wizard, an error occurs with "Error while creating entry" message, and details are "[LDAP: error code 17 - userCertificate: requires ;binary transfer]"

      The problem is that the mandatory userCertificate attribute description in attribute list is "userCertificate" and not "userCertificate;binary" as it should be. The generated LDIF has not the ";binary" tag, so that the modification is rejected.

      For an optional binary attribute, it is possible to edit attribute description and set the binary option. But this is not available for mandatory attribute.
