        lemonldap-ng-sessions get --persistent dwho

It can be used to find the session IDs that other commands need.

You can restrict the search with options. See "OPTIONS"


        lemonldap-ng-sessions search
        lemonldap-ng-sessions search --backend persistent
        lemonldap-ng-sessions search --where uid=dwho
        lemonldap-ng-sessions search --where uid=dwho \
        lemonldap-ng-sessions search --backend persistent \
                --where _session_uid=dwho
        lemonldap-ng-sessions search --where uid=dwho \
                --select authenticationLevel


    lemonldap-ng-sessions delete <id> [<id> ...]
    lemonldap-ng-sessions delete --where <filter>

This command lets you delete sessions.

You may give it one or several session IDs to remove.


        lemonldap-ng-sessions delete 9684dd2a6489bf2be2fbdd799a8028e3
        lemonldap-ng-sessions delete --persistent dwho

Or you can give it a search expression.


        lemonldap-ng-sessions delete --where uid=dwho
        lemonldap-ng-sessions delete --persistent --where _session_uid=dwho

Set Key

    lemonldap-ng-sessions setKey <id> <key> <value> [<key> <value> ...]

This command allows you to modify one or several keys from an existing session.


        lemonldap-ng-sessions setKey 9684dd2a6489bf2be2fbdd799a8028e3 \
                authenticationLevel 1

Delete Key

    lemonldap-ng-sessions delKey <id> <key> [<key> ...]

This command lets you remove a key from an existing session.

You must specify a session ID, and one of several session keys to remove.


        lemonldap-ng-sessions delKey --persistent dwho _oidcConsents

Second Factors

    lemonldap-ng-sessions secondfactors <command> <user> [<id> ... ]


    get <user>
        show all second factors for a user
    delete <user> <id> [<id> ...]
        delete second factors for a user. The ID must match one of the
        IDs returned by the "show" command.
    delType [<user>|--all] <type> [<type> ...]
        delete all second factors of a given type for a user
    migrateu2f [<user>|--all]
        migrate U2F device registrations to WebAuthn device registrations


    lemonldap-ng-sessions consents <command> <user> [<id> ... ]


    get <user>
        show all OIDC consents for a user
    delete <user> <id> [<id> ...]
        delete OIDC consents for a user


Lets you select which fields to output in the JSON result.

This option can be set multiple times

This option lets you filter your session search according to a filter.

For now, only one filter can be set.

Only exact matches are supported


        --search uid=dwho
        --search _sessionType=OIDC
This option lets you specify which session backend to use.

You only need it when you configured multiple session backends in your LemonLDAP::NG installation (for Persistent, SAML, CAS or OIDC sessions)


        --backend persistent
        --backend saml
        --backend oidc
        --backend cas
This option is a shortcut for specifying --backend persistent and using the UID hash as a session ID


        lemonldap-ng-sessions --backend persistent \
                get 5efe8af397fc3577e05b483aca964f1b

is the same as

        lemonldap-ng-sessions get --persistent dwho
This option replaces the standard JSON output format with a simpler format of one session ID per line.

This allows some interesting combos using xargs. For example, if you want to remove all sessions started by "dwho"

        lemonldap-ng-sessions search --where uid=dwho --id-only | \
                xargs lemonldap-ng-sessions delete
This option forces the system user that runs the script.
This option forces the system group that runs the script.
