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 con-
	      junction 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 whitespace 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 successful.

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: modme@example.com
	   -
	   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
       "modme@example.com",  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: bjensen@example.com
	   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.
