NAME

       slapd-shell - Shell backend to slapd

SYNOPSIS

       /etc/ultrapossum/slapd/openldap/slapd.conf

DESCRIPTION

       The  Shell  backend to slapd(8) executes external programs to implement
       operations, and is designed to make it easy to tie an existing database
       to the slapd front-end.

       This backend is is primarily intended to be used in prototypes.

WARNING

       The abandon shell command has been removed since OpenLDAP 2.1.

CONFIGURATION

       These slapd.conf options apply to the SHELL backend database.  That is,
       they must follow a "database shell" line and come before any subsequent
       "backend" or "database" lines.  Other database options are described in
       the slapd.conf(5) manual page.

       These options specify the pathname and  arguments  of  the  program  to
       execute  in  response  to  the  given  LDAP  operation.  Each option is
       followed by the input lines that the program receives:

       add <pathname> <argument>...
              ADD
              msgid: <message id>
              <repeat { "suffix:" <database suffix DN> }>
              <entry in LDIF format>

       bind <pathname> <argument>...
              BIND
              msgid: <message id>
              <repeat { "suffix:" <database suffix DN> }>
              dn: <DN>
              method: <method number>
              credlen: <length of <credentials>>
              cred: <credentials>

       compare <pathname> <argument>...
              COMPARE
              msgid: <message id>
              <repeat { "suffix:" <database suffix DN> }>
              dn: <DN>
              <attribute>: <value>

       delete <pathname> <argument>...
              DELETE
              msgid: <message id>
              <repeat { "suffix:" <database suffix DN> }>
              dn: <DN>

       modify <pathname> <argument>...
              MODIFY
              msgid: <message id>
              <repeat { "suffix:" <database suffix DN> }>
              dn: <DN>
              <repeat {
                  <"add"/"delete"/"replace">: <attribute>
                  <repeat { <attribute>: <value> }>
                  -
              }>

       modrdn <pathname> <argument>...
              MODRDN
              msgid: <message id>
              <repeat { "suffix:" <database suffix DN> }>
              dn: <DN>
              newrdn: <new RDN>
              deleteoldrdn: <0 or 1>
              <if new superior is specified: "newSuperior: <DN>">

       search <pathname> <argument>...
              SEARCH
              msgid: <message id>
              <repeat { "suffix:" <database suffix DN> }>
              base: <base DN>
              scope: <0-2, see ldap.h>
              deref: <0-3, see ldap.h>
              sizelimit: <size limit>
              timelimit: <time limit>
              filter: <filter>
              attrsonly: <0 or 1>
              attrs: <"all" or space-separated attribute list>

       unbind <pathname> <argument>...
              UNBIND
              msgid: <message id>
              <repeat { "suffix:" <database suffix DN> }>
              dn: <bound DN>

       Note that you need only supply configuration lines for  those  commands
       you  want the backend to handle.  Operations for which a command is not
       supplied will be refused with an "unwilling to perform" error.

       The commands - except unbind - should output:
              RESULT
              code: <integer>
              matched: <matched DN>
              info: <text>
       where only RESULT is mandatory.  The search RESULT should  be  preceded
       by  the  entries  in  LDIF format, each entry followed by a blank line.
       Lines starting with ‘#’ or ‘DEBUG:’ are ignored.

EXAMPLE

       There is an example search script in the slapd/back-shell/ directory in
       the OpenLDAP source tree.

LIMITATIONS

       The  shell  backend does not support threaded environments.  When using
       the shell backend, slapd(8) should be built --without-threads.
