LDAPURL(1)               General Commands Manual              LDAPURL(1)

NAME         top

       ldapurl - LDAP URL formatting tool

SYNOPSIS         top

       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         top

       ldapurl is a command that allows one 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         top

       -a attrs
              Set a comma-separated list of attribute selectors.

       -b searchbase
              Set the searchbase.

       -e [!]ext[=extparam]

              Specify general extensions with -e ´!´ indicates

              General extensions:
                [!]assert=<filter>    (an RFC 4515 Filter)
                !authzid=<authzid>    ("dn:<dn>" or "u:<user>")
                [!]bauthzid           (RFC 3829 authzid control)
                [!]postread[=<attrs>] (a comma-separated attribute list)
                [!]preread[=<attrs>]  (a comma-separated attribute list)
                abandon,cancel,ignore (SIGINT sends abandon/cancel,
                or ignores response; if critical, doesn't wait for SIGINT.
                not really controls)

       -E [!]ext[=extparam]
              Set URL extensions; incompatible with -H.

       -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

OUTPUT FORMAT         top

       If the -H option is used, the ldapuri supplied is exploded in its
       components, which are printed to standard output in an LDIF-like

       Otherwise, the URI built using the values passed with the other
       options is printed to standard output.

EXAMPLE         top

       The following command:

           ldapurl -h ldap.example.com -b dc=example,dc=com -s sub -f "(cn=Some One)"



       The command:

           ldapurl -H ldap://ldap.example.com:389/dc=example,dc=com??sub?(cn=Some%20One)


           scheme: ldap
           host: ldap.example.com
           port: 389
           dn: dc=example,dc=com
           scope: sub
           filter: (cn=Some One)

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.
