splat.conf - Scalable Periodic LDAP Attribute Transmogrifier configuration file
The Splat configuration file is composed of three different section types: · LDAP Configuration · Service Helper Configuration · Logging Configuration The configuration uses an Apache-style syntax: <LDAP> # The LDAP Server configuration. # URI of the server(s) URI ldaps://ldap1.example.com # The default search base for the server BaseDN dc=example,dc=com </LDAP>
The LDAP section defines connection parameters for your LDAP server, and may appear once within a Splat configuration file. If you make use of SSL/TLS, you will need to ensure that the appropriate settings are enabled in your system ldap.conf (e.g. TLS_CACERT or TLS_CACERTDIR, if necessary). LDAP Configuration Options URI URI of the LDAP server(s). BaseDN Default Search Base DN. BindDN LDAP Bind DN. If omitted, Slap will use an anonymous bind. Password LDAP Bind Password.
The Logging section configures logging for the Splat daemon. It is composed of any number of syslog or logfile subsections and a global Level setting. Level Log Verbosity. One of: debug, info, warning, error, critical Syslog Configuration Options Facility Syslog Facility. Address Address of syslog server, or pathname to syslog socket. This varies between hosts. FreeBSD´s syslog socket is located at /var/run/log, while Linux systems often use /dev/log. Logfile Configuration Options Path Path to log file, or reference to Python file object such as STDOUT.
SERVICE HELPER CONFIGURATION
The Service section configures Splat´s service helper modules. It is composed service-specific settings, including any number of Option, and Group subsections. Group and Service names (such as UserSSH or Administrators) must be unique within their scope, but are not interpreted by Splat in any other way. Option subsections may be specified in both the Service section and the Group subsection. Options are used to set and unset helper-specific settings. Module options are documented in the module-specific documentation. Example: <Option mingid> # Do not write keys for users with a GID less than mingid Value 1000 </Option> # Unset the Command option <Option command/> Service Configuration Options Helper Python Helper Module. Example: splat.helpers.sshPublicKeys Frequency Frequency at which helper is invoked. Units may be specified in hours (h), minutes (m), or seconds (s). SearchBase LDAP search base. If left unspecified, defaults to the BaseDN specified in the LDAP configuration section. SearchFilter LDAP search filter. All records that match this filter (and, optionally, are members of a permitted group) will be passed to the service helper module. RequireGroup (yes/no) Require that returned entries match one of the specified Groups. Group Configuration Options SearchBase LDAP search base. If left unspecified, defaults to the BaseDN specified in the LDAP configuration section. SearchFilter LDAP search filter. All records that match this filter will determine this groups membership. The filter should return groupOfUniqueNames or groupOfNames objects. I suggest using RFC2307bis to combine posixGroup and groupOfUniqueName. MemberAttribute LDAP attribute used to store member DNs. Defaults to uniqueMember.
An example configuration file splat.conf is included with the Splat source.
