NAME
ldapfilter.conf - configuration file for LDAP get filter routines
SYNOPSIS
/etc/openldap/ldapfilter.conf
DESCRIPTION
The file /etc/openldap/ldapfilter.conf contains information used by the LDAP get filter routines (see ldap- getfilter(3)). Blank lines and lines that have a first character of `#' are treated as comments and ignored. The configuration information consists of lines that contain one, two, three, four, or five tokens. Tokens are separated by white space, and double quotes `"' can be used to include white space inside a token. The file consists of a sequence of one or more filter sets. A filter set begins with a line containing a sin- gle token called a tag. The tag is used in the ldap_getfirstfilter(3) call to select the filter set. The filter set consists of a sequence of one or more filter lists. The first line in a filter list must con- tain four or five tokens: the value pattern, the delimiter list, a filter template, a match description, and an optional search scope. The value pattern is a regular expression that is matched against the value passed to the ldap_getfirstfilter(3) call to select the filter list. The delimiter list is a list of characters (in the form of a single string) that are used to break the value into distinct words. The filter template is used to construct an LDAP filter (it is described further below) The match description is returned to the called along with a filter as a piece of text that can be used to describe the sort of LDAP search that took place. It should correctly compete both of the following phrases: "One match description match was found for..." and "Three match description matches were found for...." The search scope is optional, and should be one of "base", "onelevel", or "subtree". If search scope is not provided, the default is "subtree". The remaining lines of the filter list should contain two or three tokens, a filter template, a match descrip- tion and an optional search scope (as described above). The filter template is similar in concept to a printf(3) style format string. Everything is taken literally except for the character sequences: %v %v$ %vN %vM-N %vN- A plain %v means to substitute the entire value string in place of the %v. %v$ means substitute the last word in this spot. A %vN, where N is a single digit 1-9, means substitute word N in this spot. Words are number from left to right within the value starting at 1. A %vM-N, where M and N are both single digits 1-9, means substitute the indicated sequence of words. A %vN-, where N is again a single digit 1-9, means substitute word N through the last word in value.
EXAMPLE
The following ldap filter configuration file contains two filter sets (finger and go500gw onelevel), each of which contains four filter lists. # ldap filter file # finger "=" " " "%v" "arbitrary filter" "[0-9][0-9-]*" " " "(telephoneNumber=*%v)" "phone number" "@" " " "(mail=%v)" "email address" "^.[. _].*" ". _" "(cn=%v1* %v2-)" "first initial" ".*[. _].$" ". _" "(cn=%v1-*)" "last initial" "[. _]" ". _" "(|(sn=%v1-)(cn=%v1-))" "exact" "(|(sn~=%v1-)(cn~=%v1-))" "approximate" ".*" ". " "(|(cn=%v1)(sn=%v1)(uid=%v1))" "exact" "(|(cn~=%v1)(sn~=%v1))" "approximate" "go500gw onelevel" "^..$" " " "(|(o=%v)(c=%v)(l=%v)(co=%v))" "exact" "onelevel" "(|(o~=%v)(c~=%v)(l~=%v)(co~=%v))" "approximate" "onelevel" " " " " "(|(o=%v)(l=%v)(co=%v)" "exact" "onelevel" "(|(o~=%v)(l~=%v)(co~=%v)" "approximate" "onelevel" "." " " "(associatedDomain=%v)" "exact" "onelevel" ".*" " " "(|(o=%v)(l=%v)(co=%v)" "exact" "onelevel" "(|(o~=%v)(l~=%v)(co~=%v)" "approximate" "onelevel" The call ldap_getfirstfilter( lfdp, "finger", "m.smith" ); will return an LDAPFiltInfo structure with the lfi_filter member containing the string (cn=m* smith) with the lfi_desc member containing the string first initial, and lfi_scope containing the value LDAP_SCOPE_SUBTREE. The call ldap_getfirstfilter( lfdp, "go500gw onelevel", "umich" ); will return an LDAPFiltInfo structure with the lfi_filter member containing the string (|(o=umich)(l=umich)(co=umich) with the lfi_desc member containing the string exact, and lfi_scope containing the value LDAP_SCOPE_ONELEVEL.
