NAME ^

Connector::Proxy::Net::LDAP

DESCRIPTION ^

This is the base class for all LDAP Proxy modules. It does not offer any external functionality but bundles common configuration options.

USAGE ^

minimal setup

    my $conn = Connector::Proxy::Net::LDAP->new({
           LOCATION  => 'ldap://localhost:389',
           base      => 'dc=example,dc=org',
           filter  => '(cn=[% ARGS.0 %])',
    });

    $conn->get('John Doe');

Above code will run a query of cn=test@example.org against the server using an anonymous bind.

using bind credentials

    my $conn = Connector::Proxy::Net::LDAP->new( {
        LOCATION  => 'ldap://localhost:389',
        base      => 'dc=example,dc=org',
        filter  => '(cn=[% ARGS.0 %])',
        binddn    => 'cn=admin,dc=openxpki,dc=org',
        password  => 'admin',
        attrs => ['usercertificate;binary','usercertificate'],
    });

Uses bind credentials and queries for entries having (at least) one of the mentioned attributes.

setting values

You can control how existing attributes in the node are treated setting the action parameter in the connectors base configuration.

    connector:
        LOCATION:...
        ....
        action: replace
replace

This is the default (the action parameter may be omitted). The passed value is set as the only value in the attribute. Any values (even if there are more than one) are removed. If undef is passed, the whole attribute is removed from the node.

append

The given value is appended to exisiting attributes. If undef is passed, the request is ignored.

delete

The given value is deleted from the attribute entry. If there are more items in the attribute, the remaining values are left untouched. If the value is not present or undef is passed, the request is ignored.

autocreation of missing nodes

If you want the connector to autocreate missing nodes, you need to provide the ldap properties of each node-class.

    create:
        objectclass: inetOrgPerson pkiUser
        values:
            sn: copy:self
            ou: IT Department

You can specify multiple objectclass entries seperated by space.

The objects attribute is always set, you can use the special word copy:self to copy the attribute value within the object. The values section is optional.

Full example using Connector::Multi

    [ca1]
    myrepo@ = connector:connectors.ldap

    [connectors]

    [connectors.ldap]
    class = Connector::Proxy::Net::LDAP
    LOCATION = ldap://ldaphost:389
    base     = dc=openxpki,dc=org
    filter   = (cn=[% ARGS.0 %])
    attrs    = userCertificate;binary
    binddn   = cn=admin,dc=openxpki,dc=org
    password = admin
    action = replace

    [connectors.ldap.create]
    basedn: ou=Webservers,ou=Server CA3,dc=openxpki,dc=org
    rdnkey: cn
    value: [% ARGS.0 %]

    [connectors.ldap.schema.cn]
    objectclass: inetOrgPerson

    [connectors.ldap.schema.cn.values]
    sn: copy:self

    [connectors.ldap.schema.ou]
    objectclass: organizationalUnit

internal methods ^

_getByDN

Search a node by DN.

    $self->_getByDN( 'cn=John Doe,ou=people,dc=openxpki,dc=org' );

Returns the ldap entry object or undef if not found. Pass {create = 1}> and configure your connector to auto create a new node if none is found.

_createPathItem

Used internally by _getByDN to create new nodes.

_triggerAutoCreate

Used internally to assemble the DN for a missing node. Returns the ldap entry or undef if autocreation is not possible.

_splitDN

Very simple approch to split a DN path into its components. Please do not use quoting of path components, as this is not supported. RDNs must be split by a Comma, Comma inside a value must be escaped using a backslash character. Multivalued RDNs are not supported.
