NAME         top

       ldapexop - issue LDAP extended operations

SYNOPSIS         top

       ldapexop [-V[V]] [-d debuglevel] [-n] [-v] [-f file] [-x]
       [-D binddn] [-W] [-w passwd] [-y passwdfile] [-H URI]
       [-e [!]ext[=extparam]] [-o opt[=optparam]] [-O security-
       properties] [-I] [-Q] [-N] [-U authcid] [-R realm] [-X authzid]
       [-Y mech] [-Z[Z]] {oid | oid:data | oid::b64data | whoami |
       cancel cancel-id | refresh DN [ttl]}

DESCRIPTION         top

       ldapexop issues the LDAP extended operation specified by oid or
       one of the special keywords whoami, cancel, or refresh.

       Additional data for the extended operation can be passed to the
       server using data or base-64 encoded as b64data in the case of
       oid, or using the additional parameters in the case of the
       specially named extended operations above.

       Please note that ldapexop behaves differently for the same
       extended operation when it was given as an OID or as a specially
       named operation:

       Calling ldapexop with the OID of the whoami (RFC 4532) extended
       operation

         ldapexop [<options>] 1.3.6.1.4.1.4203.1.11.3

       yields

         # extended operation response
         data:: <base64 encoded response data>

       while calling it with the keyword whoami

         ldapexop [<options>] whoami

       results in

         dn:<client's identity>

OPTIONS         top

       -V[V]  Print version info.  If-VV is given, only the version
              information is printed.

       -d debuglevel
              Set the LDAP debugging level to debuglevel.

       -n     Show what would be done but don't actually do it.  Useful
              for debugging in conjunction with -v.

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

       -f file
              Read operations from file.

       -x     Use simple authentication instead of SASL.

       -D binddn
              Use the Distinguished Name binddn to bind to the LDAP
              directory.

       -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 URI 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.

       -e [!]ext[=extparam]
              Specify general extensions.  ´!´ indicates criticality.
                [!]assert=<filter>    (an RFC 4515 Filter)
                !authzid=<authzid>    ("dn:<dn>" or "u:<user>")
                [!]bauthzid           (RFC 3829 authzid control)
                [!]chaining[=<resolve>[/<cont>]]
                [!]manageDSAit
                [!]noop
                ppolicy
                [!]postread[=<attrs>] (a comma-separated attribute list)
                [!]preread[=<attrs>]  (a comma-separated attribute list)
                [!]relax
                sessiontracking[=<username>]
                abandon,cancel,ignore (SIGINT sends abandon/cancel,
                or ignores response; if critical, doesn't wait for SIGINT.
                not really controls)

       -o opt[=optparam]

              Specify any ldap.conf(5) option or one of the following:
                nettimeout=<timeout>  (in seconds, or "none" or "max")
                ldif_wrap=<width>     (in columns, or "no" for no wrapping)

       -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.

       -N     Do not use reverse DNS to canonicalize SASL host name.

       -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.
              Without this option, the program will choose the best
              mechanism the server knows.

       -Z[Z]  Issue StartTLS (Transport Layer Security) extended
              operation.  Giving it twice (-ZZ) will require the
              operation to be successful.

DIAGNOSTICS         top

       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.
