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
       -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.

       -S file
	      Add  or  change records which where 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.

       -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.

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

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

       -f file
	      Read the entry modification information from file instead of from standard input.

       -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.

       -O security-properties
	      Specify SASL security properties.

       -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)

       -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 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.
