NAME

       ldapurl - LDAP URL formatting tool

SYNOPSIS

       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

       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

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

       -b searchbase
              Set the searchbase.

       -e [!]ext[=extparam]

              Specify general extensions with -e ´!´ indicates criticality.

              General extensions:
                [!]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
                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 extension.

OUTPUT FORMAT

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

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

EXAMPLE

       The following command:

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

       returns

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

       The command:

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

       returns

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

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.
