NAME
ldap_get_option, ldap_set_option - get or set session preferences in the ldap structure. SYNOPSIS
cc [ flag... ] file... -lldap [ library... ] #include <lber.h> #include <ldap.h> LDAP ldap_set_option(LDAP *ld, int option, void *optdata[]); LDAP ldap_get_option(LDAP *ld, int option, void optdata[]); DESCRIPTION
These functions provide an LDAP structure with access to session preferences. The ldap_get_option() function gets session preferences from the LDAP structure. The ldap_set_option() function sets session preferences in the LDAP structure. The ld parameter specifies the connection handle, a pointer to an LDAP structure that contains information about the LDAP server connec- tion. The option parameter specifies the name of the option to be read or modified. The optdata parameter serves as a pointer to the value of the option that you set or get. PARAMETERS
The following values can be specified for the option parameter: LDAP_OPT_API_INFO Retrieves basic information about the LDAP API implementation at execution time. The data type for the optdata parameter is (LDAPAPI- Info *). This option is READ-ONLY and cannot be set. LDAP_OPT_DEREF Determines how aliases are handled during a search. The data type for the optdata parameter is (int *). The following values can be specified for the optdata parameter: LDAP_DEREF_NEVER Specifies that aliases are never dereferenced. LDAP_DEREF_SEARCHING Specifies that aliases are dereferenced when searching under the base object, but not when finding the base object. LDAP_DEREF_FINDING Specifies that aliases are dereferenced when finding the base object, but not when searching under the base object. LDAP_DEREF_ALWAYS Specifies that aliases are always dereferenced when finding the base object and searching under the base object. LDAP_OPT_SIZELIMIT Specifies the maximum number of entries returned by the server in search results. The data type for the optdata parameter is (int *). Setting the optdata parameter to LDAP_NO_LIMIT removes any size limit enforced by the client. LDAP_OPT_TIMELIMIT Specifies the maximum number of seconds spent by the server when answering a search request. The data type for the optdata parameter is (int *). Setting the optdata parameter to LDAP_NO_LIMIT removes any time limit enforced by the client. LDAP_OPT_REFERRALS Determines whether the client should follow referrals. The data type for the optdata parameter is (int *). The following values can be specified for the optdata parameter: LDAP_OPT_ON Specifies that the client should follow referrals. LDAP_OPT_OFF Specifies that the client should not follow referrals. By default, the client follows referrals. LDAP_OPT_RESTART Determines whether LDAP I/O operations are automatically restarted if aborted prematurely. It can be set to one of the constants LDAP_OPT_ON or LDAP_OPT_OFF. LDAP_OPT_PROTOCOL_VERSION Specifies the version of the protocol supported by the client. The data type for the optdata parameter is (int *). The version LDAP_VERSION2 or LDAP_VERSION3 can be specified. If no version is set, the default version LDAP_VERSION2 is set. To use LDAP v3 fea- tures, set the protocol version to LDAP_VERSION3. LDAP_OPT_SERVER_CONTROLS Specifies a pointer to an array of LDAPControl structures that represent the LDAP v3 server controls sent by default with every request. The data type for the optdata parameter for ldap_set_option() is (LDAPControl **). For ldap_get_option(), the data type is (LDAPControl ***). LDAP_OPT_CLIENT_CONTROLS Specifies a pointer to an array of LDAPControl structures that represent the LDAP v3 client controls sent by default with every request. The data type for the optdata parameter for ldap_set_option() is (LDAPControl **). For ldap_get_option(), the data type is (LDAPControl ***). LDAP_OPT_API_FEATURE_INFO Retrieves version information at execution time about extended features of the LDAP API. The data type for the optdata parameter is (LDAPAPIFeatureInfo *). This option is READ-ONLY and cannot be set. LDAP_OPT_HOST_NAME Sets the host name or a list of hosts for the primary LDAP server. The data type for the optdata parameter for ldap_set_option() is (char *). For ldap_get_option(), the data type is (char **). LDAP_OPT_ERROR_NUMBER Specifies the code of the most recent LDAP error that occurred for this session. The data type for the optdata parameter is (int *). LDAP_OPT_ERROR_STRING Specifies the message returned with the most recent LDAP error that occurred for this session. The data type for the optdata parameter for ldap_set_option() is (char *) and for ldap_get_option() is (char **). LDAP_OPT_MATCHED_DN Specifies the matched DN value returned with the most recent LDAP error that occurred for this session. The data type for the optdata parameter for ldap_set_option() is (char *) and for ldap_get_option() is (char **). LDAP_OPT_REBIND_ARG Sets the last argument passed to the routine specified by LDAP_OPT_REBIND_FN. This option can also be set by calling the ldap_set_rebind_proc() function. The data type for the optdata parameter is (void * ). LDAP_OPT_REBIND_FN Sets the routine to be called to authenticate a connection with another LDAP server. For example, the option is used to set the routine called during the course of a referral. This option can also be by calling the ldap_set_rebind_proc() function. The data type for the optdata parameter is (LDAP_REBINDPROC_CALLBACK *). LDAP_OPT_X_SASL_MECH Sets the default SASL mechanism to call ldap_interactive_bind_s(). The data type for the optdata parameter is (char * ). LDAP_OPT_X_SASL_REALM Sets the default SASL_REALM. The default SASL_REALM should be used during a SASL challenge in response to a SASL_CB_GETREALM request when using the ldap_interactive_bind_s() function. The data type for the optdata parameter is (char * ). LDAP_OPT_X_SASL_AUTHCID Sets the default SASL_AUTHNAME used during a SASL challenge in response to a SASL_CB_AUTHNAME request when using the ldap_interac- tive_bind_s() function. The data type for the optdata parameter is (char * ). LDAP_OPT_X_SASL_AUTHZID Sets the default SASL_USER that should be used during a SASL challenge in response to a SASL_CB_USER request when using the ldap_inter- active_bind_s function. The data type for the optdata parameter is (char * ). LDAP_OPT_X_SASL_SSF A read-only option used exclusively with the ldap_get_option() function. The ldap_get_option() function performs a sasl_getprop() oper- ation that gets the SASL_SSF value for the current connection. The data type for the optdata parameter is (sasl_ssf_t * ). LDAP_OPT_X_SASL_SSF_EXTERNAL A write-only option used exclusively with the ldap_set_option() function. The ldap_set_option() function performs a sasl_setprop() operation to set the SASL_SSF_EXTERNAL value for the current connection. The data type for the optdata parameter is (sasl_ssf_t * ). LDAP_OPT_X_SASL_SECPROPS A write-only option used exclusively with the ldap_set_option(). This function performs a sasl_setprop(3SASL) operation for the SASL_SEC_PROPS value for the current connection during an ldap_interactive_bind_s() operation. The data type for the optdata parameter is (char * ), a comma delimited string containing text values for any of the SASL_SEC_PROPS that should be set. The text values are: noanonymous Sets the SASL_SEC_NOANONYMOUS flag nodict Sets the SASL_SEC_NODICTIONARY flag noplain Sets the SASL_SEC_NOPLAINTEXT flag forwardsec Sets the SASL_SEC_FORWARD_SECRECY flag passcred Sets the SASL_SEC_PASS_CREDENTIALS flag minssf=N Sets minssf to the integer value N maxssf=N Sets maxssf to the integer value N maxbufsize=N Sets maxbufsize to the integer value N LDAP_OPT_X_SASL_SSF_MIN Sets the default SSF_MIN value used during a ldap_interactive_bind_s() operation. The data type for the optdata parameter is (char * ) numeric string. LDAP_OPT_X_SASL_SSF_MAX Sets the default SSF_MAX value used during a ldap_interactive_bind_s() operation. The data type for the optdata parameter is (char * ) numeric string. LDAP_OPT_X_SASL_MAXBUFSIZE Sets the default SSF_MAXBUFSIZE value used during a ldap_interactive_bind_s() operation. The data type for the optdata parameter is (char * ) numeric string. RETURN VALUES
The ldap_set_option() and ldap_get_option() functions return: LDAP_SUCCESS If successful -1 If unsuccessful ATTRIBUTES
