Would be cool to be able to export a single schema object as LDIF or OpenLDAP format

      Description

      Currently, we can only export Schema Objects as a whole (ie, the Schema is the unit), not a single AT or OC only.

      We could not either save it in the clipboard, which forces you to select a path or a file, when a paste in an editor would have been way more convenient.

        One workaround is to open the AT or OC editor, select the 'Source Code' tab and copy the OpenLDAP format from there.

        But I agree, more export/copy actions would be great. I'd suggest a "Copy As" sub-menu in the context menu with some menu items:

        Copy As >
        RFC Format: excluding "attributeType ( ... )", to be pasted directly into the subschema subentry
        RFC LDIF Format: "attributeTypes: ..."
        ApacheDS LDIF Format
        OpenLDAP Format: including "attributeType ( ... )"
        OpenLDAP LDIF Format
        SunDS/OpenDS/FedoraDS LDIF Format
        Active Directory LDIF Format

        This should be possible for a single schema object, multiple selected schema objects or the whole schema.

        Alternatively we could extend the export wizard with a "Save to Clipboard" option, this is implemented in the Subclipse "Create Patch..." wizard.

        I'd like to see this as well.

        Creating a schema in DS is fine, but having to do something like what's described in the "Modifying the slapd Configuration Database" section of this https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/serverguide/openldap-server.html page is slightly annoying.
