NAME

       ldbedit - Edit LDB databases using your preferred editor

SYNOPSIS

       ldbedit [-?] [--usage] [-s base|one|sub] [-b basedn] [-a] [-e editor] [-H LDB-URL]
               [expression] [attributes...]

DESCRIPTION

       ldbedit is a utility that allows you to edit LDB entries (in tdb files, sqlite files or
       LDAP servers) using your preferred editor. ldbedit generates an LDIF file based on your
       query, allows you to edit the LDIF, and then merges that LDIF back into the LDB backend.

OPTIONS

       -?, --help
           Show list of available options, and a phrase describing what that option does.

       --usage
           Show list of available options. This is similar to the help option, however it does
           not provide any description, and is hence shorter.

       -H <ldb-url>
           LDB URL to connect to. For a tdb database, this will be of the form tdb://filename.
           For a LDAP connection over unix domain sockets, this will be of the form
           ldapi://socket. For a (potentially remote) LDAP connection over TCP, this will be of
           the form ldap://hostname. For an SQLite database, this will be of the form
           sqlite://filename.

       -s one|sub|base
           Search scope to use. One-level, subtree or base.

       -a, -all
           Edit all records. This allows you to apply the same change to a number of records at
           once. You probably want to combine this with an expression of the form
           "objectclass=*".

       -e editor, --editor editor
           Specify the editor that should be used (overrides the VISUAL and EDITOR environment
           variables). If this option is not used, and neither VISUAL nor EDITOR environment
           variables are set, then the vi editor will be used.

       -b basedn
           Specify Base Distinguished Name to use.

       -v, --verbose
           Make ldbedit more verbose about the operations that are being performed. Without this
           option, ldbedit will only provide a summary change line.

ENVIRONMENT

       LDB_URL
           LDB URL to connect to. This can be overridden by using the -H command-line option.)

       VISUAL and EDITOR
           Environment variables used to determine what editor to use. VISUAL takes precedence
           over EDITOR, and both are overridden by the -e command-line option.
