       slapo-deref - Dereference Control overlay to slapd

SYNOPSIS         top



DESCRIPTION         top

       This overlay implements the draft Dereference control. The
       overlay can be used with any backend or globally for all

EXAMPLES         top

         database mdb
         overlay deref

       Given these entries:
         dn: cn=Howard Chu,ou=people,dc=example,dc=org
         objectClass: inetOrgPerson
         cn: Howard Chu
         sn: Chu
         uid: hyc

         dn: cn=Pierangelo Masarati,ou=people,dc=example,dc=org
         objectClass: inetOrgPerson
         cn: Pierangelo Masarati
         sn: Masarati
         uid: ando

         dn: cn=Test Group,ou=groups,dc=example,dc=org
         objectClass: groupOfNames
         cn: Test Group
         member: cn=Howard Chu,ou=people,dc=example,dc=org
         member: cn=Pierangelo Masarati,ou=people,dc=example,dc=org

       A search could be performed with a Dereference request control
       value specified as

         { member, uid }

         ldapsearch -x -b dc=example,dc=org -E 'deref=member:uid'

       and the "cn=Test Group" entry would be returned with the response
       control value
         { { member, cn=Howard Chu,ou=people,dc=example,dc=org,
             { { uid, [hyc] } } },
           { member, cn=Pierangelo Masarati,ou=people,dc=example,dc=org,
             { { uid, [ando] } } } }
