Net::LDAP::Extension::Refresh - LDAPv3 Refresh extension object (RFC 2589)


 use Net::LDAP;
 use Net::LDAP::Extension::Refresh;

 $ldap = Net::LDAP->new('localhost');
 $ldap->bind('cn=admin,dc=example,dc=com', password => 'password');

 $mesg = $ldap->refresh(entryName => 'cn=dynamic,dc=example,dc=com',
        requestTtl => 100);
 die "error :", $mesg->code(), ": ", $mesg->error()  if ($mesg->code());
 print "TTL changed to ", $mesg->get_ttl(), "\n";


"Net::LDAP::Extension::Refresh" implements the "Refresh" extended LDAPv3 operation as described in RFC 2589

It implements no object by itself but extends the Net::LDAP object by another method:


refresh ( OPTIONS )
Send a refresh operation for an object.

OPTIONS is a list of key/value pairs. The following keys are recognized:

This option contains the object to refresh. It must be a DN.
This option contains the TTL in seconds requested. The server may choose to set another value as stated in RFC 2589
get_ttl ( )
Return the TTL set by the server during the previous "refresh" call.

This method is a method of the Net::LDAP::Message response object returned in reply to "refresh()" in case the "refresh()" call succeeded.
