LDAPURL(1) General Commands Manual LDAPURL(1)

NAME

ldapurl - LDAP URL formatting tool

SYNOPSIS

ldapurl [-a attrs] [-b searchbase] [-e [!]ext[=extparam]] [-E [!]ext[=extparam]] [-f filter] [-H ldapuri] [-h ldaphost] [-p ldapport] [-s {base|one|sub|children}] [-S scheme]

DESCRIPTION

ldapurl is a command that allows one to either compose or decompose LDAP URIs.

When invoked with the -H option, ldapurl extracts the components of the ldapuri option argument, unescaping hex-escaped chars as required. It basically acts as a frontend to the ldap_url_parse(3) call. Otherwise, it builds an LDAP URI based on the components passed with the appropriate options, performing the inverse operation. Option -H is incompatible with options -a, -b, -E, -f, -H, -h, -p, -S, and -s.

OPTIONS

Set a comma-separated list of attribute selectors.
Set the searchbase.

Specify general extensions with -e ´!´ indicates criticality.

General extensions:


[!]assert=<filter> (an RFC 4515 Filter)
!authzid=<authzid> ("dn:<dn>" or "u:<user>")
[!]bauthzid (RFC 3829 authzid control)
[!]chaining[=<resolve>[/<cont>]]
[!]manageDSAit
[!]noop
ppolicy
[!]postread[=<attrs>] (a comma-separated attribute list)
[!]preread[=<attrs>] (a comma-separated attribute list)
[!]relax
sessiontracking
abandon,cancel,ignore (SIGINT sends abandon/cancel,
or ignores response; if critical, doesn't wait for SIGINT.
not really controls)

Set URL extensions; incompatible with -H.
Set the URL filter. No particular check on conformity with RFC 4515 LDAP filters is performed, but the value is hex-escaped as required.
Specify URI to be exploded.
Set the host.
Set the TCP port.
Set the URL scheme. Defaults for other fields, like ldapport, may depend on the value of scheme.
Specify the scope of the search to be one of base, one, sub, or children to specify a base object, one-level, subtree, or children search. The default is sub. Note: children scope requires LDAPv3 subordinate feature extension.

OUTPUT FORMAT

If the -H option is used, the ldapuri supplied is exploded in its components, which are printed to standard output in an LDIF-like form.

Otherwise, the URI built using the values passed with the other options is printed to standard output.

EXAMPLE

The following command:


ldapurl -h ldap.example.com -b dc=example,dc=com -s sub -f "(cn=Some One)"

returns


ldap://ldap.example.com:389/dc=example,dc=com??sub?(cn=Some%20One)

The command:


ldapurl -H ldap://ldap.example.com:389/dc=example,dc=com??sub?(cn=Some%20One)

returns


scheme: ldap
host: ldap.example.com
port: 389
dn: dc=example,dc=com
scope: sub
filter: (cn=Some One)

DIAGNOSTICS

Exit status is zero if no errors occur. Errors result in a non-zero exit status and a diagnostic message being written to standard error.
