ldapmodify, ldapadd - LDAP modify entry and LDAP add entry tools SYNOPSIS
ldapmodify [-V[V]] [-d debuglevel] [-n] [-v] [-a] [-c] [-f file] [-S file] [-M[M]] [-x] [-D binddn] [-W] [-w passwd] [-y passwdfile] [-H ldapuri] [-h ldaphost] [-p ldapport] [-P {2|3}] [-e [!]ext[=extparam]] [-E [!]ext[=extparam]] [-o opt[=optparam]] [-O security-proper- ties] [-I] [-Q] [-N] [-U authcid] [-R realm] [-X authzid] [-Y mech] [-Z[Z]] ldapadd [-V[V]] [-d debuglevel] [-n] [-v] [-c] [-f file] [-S file] [-M[M]] [-x] [-D binddn] [-W] [-w passwd] [-y passwdfile] [-H ldapuri] [-h ldaphost] [-p ldapport] [-P {2|3}] [-e [!]ext[=extparam]] [-E [!]ext[=extparam]] [-o opt[=optparam]] [-O security-properties] [-I] [-Q] [-N] [-U authcid] [-R realm] [-X authzid] [-Y mech] [-Z[Z]] DESCRIPTION
ldapmodify is a shell-accessible interface to the ldap_add_ext(3), ldap_modify_ext(3), ldap_delete_ext(3) and ldap_rename(3). library calls. ldapadd is implemented as a hard link to the ldapmodify tool. When invoked as ldapadd the -a (add new entry) flag is turned on automatically. ldapmodify opens a connection to an LDAP server, binds, and modifies or adds entries. The entry information is read from standard input or from file through the use of the -f option. OPTIONS
-V[V] Print version info. If -VV is given, only the version information is printed. -d debuglevel Set the LDAP debugging level to debuglevel. ldapmodify must be compiled with LDAP_DEBUG defined for this option to have any effect. -n Show what would be done, but don't actually modify entries. Useful for debugging in conjunction with -v. -v Use verbose mode, with many diagnostics written to standard output. -a Add new entries. The default for ldapmodify is to modify existing entries. If invoked as ldapadd, this flag is always set. -c Continuous operation mode. Errors are reported, but ldapmodify will continue with modifications. The default is to exit after reporting an error. -f file Read the entry modification information from file instead of from standard input. -S file Add or change records which were skipped due to an error are written to file and the error message returned by the server is added as a comment. Most useful in conjunction with -c. -M[M] Enable manage DSA IT control. -MM makes control critical. -x Use simple authentication instead of SASL. -D binddn Use the Distinguished Name binddn to bind to the LDAP directory. For SASL binds, the server is expected to ignore this value. -W Prompt for simple authentication. This is used instead of specifying the password on the command line. -w passwd Use passwd as the password for simple authentication. -y passwdfile Use complete contents of passwdfile as the password for simple authentication. -H ldapuri Specify URI(s) referring to the ldap server(s); only the protocol/host/port fields are allowed; a list of URI, separated by white- space or commas is expected. -h ldaphost Specify an alternate host on which the ldap server is running. Deprecated in favor of -H. -p ldapport Specify an alternate TCP port where the ldap server is listening. Deprecated in favor of -H. -P {2|3} Specify the LDAP protocol version to use. -e [!]ext[=extparam] -E [!]ext[=extparam] Specify general extensions with -e and modify 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) Modify extensions: [!]txn[=abort|commit] -o opt[=optparam]] Specify general options. General options: nettimeout=<timeout> (in seconds, or "none" or "max") ldif-wrap=<width> (in columns, or "no" for no wrapping) -O security-properties Specify SASL security properties. -I Enable SASL Interactive mode. Always prompt. Default is to prompt only as needed. -Q Enable SASL Quiet mode. Never prompt. -N Do not use reverse DNS to canonicalize SASL host name. -U authcid Specify the authentication ID for SASL bind. The form of the ID depends on the actual SASL mechanism used. -R realm Specify the realm of authentication ID for SASL bind. The form of the realm depends on the actual SASL mechanism used. -X authzid Specify the requested authorization ID for SASL bind. authzid must be one of the following formats: dn:<distinguished name> or u:<username> -Y mech Specify the SASL mechanism to be used for authentication. If it's not specified, the program will choose the best mechanism the server knows. -Z[Z] Issue StartTLS (Transport Layer Security) extended operation. If you use -ZZ, the command will require the operation to be success- ful. INPUT FORMAT
The contents of file (or standard input if no -f flag is given on the command line) must conform to the format defined in ldif(5) (LDIF as defined in RFC 2849). EXAMPLES
Assuming that the file /tmp/entrymods exists and has the contents: dn: cn=Modify Me,dc=example,dc=com changetype: modify replace: mail mail: - add: title title: Grand Poobah - add: jpegPhoto jpegPhoto:< file:///tmp/modme.jpeg - delete: description - the command: ldapmodify -f /tmp/entrymods will replace the contents of the "Modify Me" entry's mail attribute with the value "", add a title of "Grand Poobah", and the contents of the file "/tmp/modme.jpeg" as a jpegPhoto, and completely remove the description attribute. Assuming that the file /tmp/newentry exists and has the contents: dn: cn=Barbara Jensen,dc=example,dc=com objectClass: person cn: Barbara Jensen cn: Babs Jensen sn: Jensen title: the world's most famous mythical manager mail: uid: bjensen the command: ldapadd -f /tmp/newentry will add a new entry for Babs Jensen, using the values from the file /tmp/newentry. Assuming that the file /tmp/entrymods exists and has the contents: dn: cn=Barbara Jensen,dc=example,dc=com changetype: delete the command: ldapmodify -f /tmp/entrymods will remove Babs Jensen's entry. 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. SEE ALSO
