LDAPDELETE(1)									    LDAPDELETE(1)

NAME
       ldapdelete - LDAP delete entry tool

SYNOPSIS
       ldapdelete  [-n]  [-v] [-c] [-M[M]] [-d debuglevel] [-f file] [-D binddn] [-W] [-w passwd]
       [-y passwdfile]	  [-H ldapuri]	  [-h ldaphost]     [-P {2|3}]	   [-e [!]ext[=extparam]]
       [-E [!]ext[=extparam]] [-p ldapport] [-O security-properties] [-U authcid] [-R realm] [-r]
       [-x] [-I] [-Q] [-X authzid] [-Y mech] [-z sizelimit] [-Z[Z]] [DN [...]]

DESCRIPTION
       ldapdelete is a shell-accessible interface to the ldap_delete_ext(3) library call.

       ldapdelete opens a connection to an LDAP server, binds, and deletes one or  more  entries.
       If  one	or  more  DN  arguments  are provided, entries with those Distinguished Names are
       deleted.  Each DN should be provided using the LDAPv3 string representation as defined  in
       RFC  4514.  If no DN arguments are provided, a list of DNs is read from standard input (or
       from file if the -f flag is used).

OPTIONS
       -n     Show what would be done, but don't actually delete entries.  Useful  for	debugging
	      in conjunction with -v.

       -v     Use verbose mode, with many diagnostics written to standard output.

       -c     Continuous  operation  mode.  Errors  are  reported,  but ldapdelete will  continue
	      with  deletions.	 The default is to exit after reporting an error.

       -M[M]  Enable manage DSA IT control.  -MM makes control critical.

       -d debuglevel
	      Set the LDAP debugging level to  debuglevel.   ldapdelete  must  be  compiled  with
	      LDAP_DEBUG defined for this option to have any effect.

       -f file
	      Read a series of DNs from file, one per line, performing an LDAP delete for each.

       -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 search extensions with  -E.   '!'	indicates
	      criticality.

	      General extensions:
		[!]assert=<filter>   (an RFC 4515 Filter)
		[!]authzid=<authzid> ("dn:<dn>" or "u:<user>")
		[!]manageDSAit
		[!]noop
		ppolicy
		[!]postread[=<attrs>]	     (a comma-separated attribute list)
		[!]preread[=<attrs>] (a comma-separated attribute list)
		abandon, cancel (SIGINT sends abandon/cancel; not really controls)

	      Search extensions:
		[!]domainScope				     (domain scope)
		[!]mv=<filter>				     (matched values filter)
		[!]pr=<size>[/prompt|noprompt]	     (paged results/prompt)
		[!]sss=[-]<attr[:OID]>[/[-]<attr[:OID]>...]  (server side sorting)
		[!]subentries[=true|false]	     (subentries)
		[!]sync=ro[/<cookie>]			     (LDAP Sync refreshOnly)
			rp[/<cookie>][/<slimit>]     (LDAP Sync refreshAndPersist)

       -r     Do  a  recursive	delete.   If the DN specified isn't a leaf, its children, and all
	      their children are deleted down the tree.  No verification is done, so if  you  add
	      this  switch, ldapdelete will happily delete large portions of your tree.  Use with
	      care.

       -z sizelimit
	      Use sizelimit when searching for children DN to delete, to circumvent  any  server-
	      side size limit.	Only useful in conjunction with -r.

       -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.

       -U authcid
	      Specify  the  authentication  ID for SASL bind. The form of the identity 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.

EXAMPLE
       The following command:

	   ldapdelete "cn=Delete Me,dc=example,dc=com"

       will attempt to delete the entry named "cn=Delete  Me,dc=example,dc=com".   Of  course  it
       would probably be necessary to supply authentication credentials.

DIAGNOSTICS
       Exit  status is 0 if no errors occur.  Errors result in a non-zero exit status and a diag-
       nostic message being written to standard error.
