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 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] -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) -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: ldapuri -h -b dc=example,dc=com -s sub -f "(cn=Some One)" returns ldap://,dc=com??sub?(cn=Some%20One) The command: ldapuri -H ldap://,dc=com??sub?(cn=Some%20One) returns scheme: ldap host: 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. SEE ALSO
