DESCRIPTION


ldapmodify is a shell-accessible interface to the ldap_add_ext(3), ldap_modify_ext(3),
ldap_delete_ext(3) and ldap_rename(3). library calls. ldapadd is implemented as a hard
link to the ldapmodify tool. When invoked as ldapadd the -a (add new entry) flag is
turned on automatically.

ldapmodify opens a connection to an LDAP server, binds, and modifies or adds entries. The
entry information is read from standard input or from file through the use of the -f
option.

OPTIONS


-V[V] Print version info. If -VV is given, only the version information is printed.

-d debuglevel
Set the LDAP debugging level to debuglevel. ldapmodify must be compiled with
LDAP_DEBUG defined for this option to have any effect.

-n Show what would be done, but don't actually modify entries. Useful for debugging
in conjunction with -v.

-v Use verbose mode, with many diagnostics written to standard output.

-a Add new entries. The default for ldapmodify is to modify existing entries. If
invoked as ldapadd, this flag is always set.

-c Continuous operation mode. Errors are reported, but ldapmodify will continue with
modifications. The default is to exit after reporting an error.

-f file
Read the entry modification information from file instead of from standard input.

-S file
Add or change records which were skipped due to an error are written to file and
the error message returned by the server is added as a comment. Most useful in
conjunction with -c.

-M[M] Enable manage DSA IT control. -MM makes control critical.

-x Use simple authentication instead of SASL.

-D binddn
Use the Distinguished Name binddn to bind to the LDAP directory. For SASL binds,
the server is expected to ignore this value.

-W Prompt for simple authentication. This is used instead of specifying the password
on the command line.

-w passwd
Use passwd as the password for simple authentication.

-y passwdfile
Use complete contents of passwdfile as the password for simple authentication.

-H ldapuri
Specify URI(s) referring to the ldap server(s); only the protocol/host/port fields
are allowed; a list of URI, separated by whitespace or commas is expected.

-h ldaphost
Specify an alternate host on which the ldap server is running. Deprecated in favor
of -H.

-p ldapport
Specify an alternate TCP port where the ldap server is listening. Deprecated in
favor of -H.

-P {2|3}
Specify the LDAP protocol version to use.

-e [!]ext[=extparam]

-E [!]ext[=extparam]

Specify general extensions with -e and modify 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)

Modify extensions:
[!]txn[=abort|commit]

-o opt[=optparam]]

Specify general options.

General options:
nettimeout=<timeout> (in seconds, or "none" or "max")
ldif-wrap=<width> (in columns, or "no" for no wrapping)

-O security-properties
Specify SASL security properties.

-I Enable SASL Interactive mode. Always prompt. Default is to prompt only as needed.

-Q Enable SASL Quiet mode. Never prompt.

-N Do not use reverse DNS to canonicalize SASL host name.

-U authcid
Specify the authentication ID for SASL bind. The form of the ID depends on the
actual SASL mechanism used.

-R realm
Specify the realm of authentication ID for SASL bind. The form of the realm depends
on the actual SASL mechanism used.

-X authzid
Specify the requested authorization ID for SASL bind. authzid must be one of the
following formats: dn:<distinguished name> or u:<username>

-Y mech
Specify the SASL mechanism to be used for authentication. If it's not specified,
the program will choose the best mechanism the server knows.

-Z[Z] Issue StartTLS (Transport Layer Security) extended operation. If you use -ZZ, the
command will require the operation to be successful.

INPUT FORMAT


The contents of file (or standard input if no -f flag is given on the command line) must
conform to the format defined in ldif(5) (LDIF as defined in RFC 2849).

EXAMPLES


Assuming that the file /tmp/entrymods exists and has the contents:

dn: cn=Modify Me,dc=example,dc=com
changetype: modify
replace: mail
mail: modme@example.com
-
add: title
title: Grand Poobah
-
add: jpegPhoto
jpegPhoto:< file:///tmp/modme.jpeg
-
delete: description
-

the command:

ldapmodify -f /tmp/entrymods

will replace the contents of the "Modify Me" entry's mail attribute with the value
"modme@example.com", add a title of "Grand Poobah", and the contents of the file
"/tmp/modme.jpeg" as a jpegPhoto, and completely remove the description attribute.

Assuming that the file /tmp/newentry exists and has the contents:

dn: cn=Barbara Jensen,dc=example,dc=com
objectClass: person
cn: Barbara Jensen
cn: Babs Jensen
sn: Jensen
title: the world's most famous mythical manager
mail: bjensen@example.com
uid: bjensen

the command:

ldapadd -f /tmp/newentry

will add a new entry for Babs Jensen, using the values from the file /tmp/newentry.

Assuming that the file /tmp/entrymods exists and has the contents:

dn: cn=Barbara Jensen,dc=example,dc=com
changetype: delete

the command:

ldapmodify -f /tmp/entrymods

will remove Babs Jensen's entry.

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.
