NAME ^

Net::LDAP::Control::SortResult - Server Side Sort (SSS) result control object

SYNOPSIS ^

 use Net::LDAP::Control::Sort;
 use Net::LDAP::Constant qw(LDAP_CONTROL_SORTRESULT);
 use Net::LDAP::Util qw(ldap_error_name);

 $sort = Net::LDAP::Control::Sort->new(
   order => "cn -age"
 );

 $mesg = $ldap->search( @args, control => [ $sort ]);

 ($resp) = $mesg->control( LDAP_CONTROL_SORTRESULT );

 if ($resp) {
   if ($resp->result) {
     my $attr = $resp->attr;
     print "Problem sorting, ",ldap_error_name($resp->result);
     print " ($attr)" if $attr;
     print "\n";
   }
   else {
     print "Results are sorted\n";
   }
 }
 else {
   print "Server does not support sorting\n";
 }

DESCRIPTION ^

Net::LDAP::Control::SortResult is a sub-class of Net::LDAP::Control. It provides a class for manipulating the LDAP sort request control 1.2.840.113556.1.4.474 as defined in RFC-2891

A sort result control will be returned by the server in response to a search with a Server Side Sort control. If a sort result control is not returned then the user may assume that the server does not support sorting and the results are not sorted.

CONSTRUCTOR ARGUMENTS ^

attr

If result indicates that there was a problem with sorting and that problem was due to one of the attributes specified in the sort control. attr is set to the name of the attribute causing the problem.

result

This is the result code that describes if the sort operation was sucessful. If will be one of the result codes describes below.

METHODS ^

As with Net::LDAP::Control each constructor argument described above is also avaliable as a method on the object which will return the current value for the attribute if called without an argument, and set a new value for the attribute if called with an argument.

RESULT CODES ^

Possible results from a sort request are listed below. See Net::LDAP::Constant for a definition of each.

LDAP_SUCCESS
LDAP_OPERATIONS_ERROR
LDAP_TIMELIMIT_EXCEEDED
LDAP_STRONG_AUTH_REQUIRED
LDAP_ADMIN_LIMIT_EXCEEDED
LDAP_NO_SUCH_ATTRIBUTE
LDAP_INAPPROPRIATE_MATCHING
