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

-a attrs

Set a comma-separated list of attribute selectors.

-b searchbase

Set the searchbase.

-e [!]ext[=extparam]

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)
-E [!]ext[=extparam]

Set URL extensions; incompatible with -H.

-f filter

Set the URL filter.  No particular check on conformity with RFC 4515 LDAP filters is performed, but the value is hex-escaped as required.

-H ldapuri

Specify URI to be exploded.

-h ldaphost

Set the host.

-p ldapport

Set the TCP port.

-S scheme

Set the URL scheme.  Defaults for other fields, like ldapport, may depend on the value of scheme.

-s {base|one|sub|children}

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.
