NAME

slapo-deref - Dereference Control overlay to slapd

SYNOPSIS

/etc/ldap/slapd.conf

/etc/ldap/slapd.d

DESCRIPTION

This overlay implements the draft Dereference control. The overlay can be used with any backend or globally for all backends.

EXAMPLES


database mdb
...
overlay deref

Given these entries:


dn: cn=Howard Chu,ou=people,dc=example,dc=org
objectClass: inetOrgPerson
cn: Howard Chu
sn: Chu
uid: hyc
dn: cn=Pierangelo Masarati,ou=people,dc=example,dc=org
objectClass: inetOrgPerson
cn: Pierangelo Masarati
sn: Masarati
uid: ando
dn: cn=Test Group,ou=groups,dc=example,dc=org
objectClass: groupOfNames
cn: Test Group
member: cn=Howard Chu,ou=people,dc=example,dc=org
member: cn=Pierangelo Masarati,ou=people,dc=example,dc=org

A search could be performed with a Dereference request control value specified as


{ member, uid }

I.e.,


ldapsearch -x -b dc=example,dc=org -E 'deref=member:uid'

and the "cn=Test Group" entry would be returned with the response control value


{ { member, cn=Howard Chu,ou=people,dc=example,dc=org,
{ { uid, [hyc] } } },
{ member, cn=Pierangelo Masarati,ou=people,dc=example,dc=org,
{ { uid, [ando] } } } }
