NAME ^

Net::LDAP::Class::Group::AD - Active Directory group class

SYNOPSIS ^

 # create a subclass for your local Active Directory
 package MyLDAPGroup;
 use base qw( Net::LDAP::Class::Group::AD );
 
 __PACKAGE__->metadata->setup(
    base_dn             => 'dc=mycompany,dc=com',
    attributes          => __PACKAGE__->AD_attributes,
    unique_attributes   => __PACKAGE__->AD_unique_attributes,
 );
 
 1;
 
 # then use your class
 my $ldap = get_and_bind_LDAP_object(); # you write this
 
 use MyLDAPGroup;
 my $group = MyLDAPGroup->new( ldap => $ldap, cn => 'foobar' );
 $group->read_or_create;
 my $users = $group->users_iterator( page_size => 50 );
 while ( my $user = $users->next ) {
     printf("user %s in group %s\n", $user, $group);
 }

DESCRIPTION ^

Net::LDAP::Class::Group::AD isa Net::LDAP::Class::Group implementing the Active Directory LDAP schema.

CLASS METHODS ^

AD_attributes

Returns array ref of a subset of the default Active Directory attributes. Only a subset is used since the default schema contains literally 100s of attributes. The subset was chosen based on its similarity to the POSIX schema.

AD_unique_attributes

Returns array ref of unique Active Directory attributes.

OBJECT METHODS ^

fetch_primary_users

Required MethodMaker method for retrieving primary_users from LDAP.

Returns array or array ref based on context, of related User objects who have this group assigned as their primary group.

primary_users_iterator([opts])

Returns a Net::LDAP::Class::Iterator object for all the related primary users for the group.

This is the same data as primary_users() returns, but is more efficient since it pages the results and only fetches one at a time.

fetch_secondary_users

Required MethodMaker method for retrieving secondary_users from LDAP.

Returns array or array ref based on context, of related User objects who have this group assigned as a secondary group (memberOf).

Consider using secondary_users_iterator() instead, especially if you have large groups. See Net::LDAP::Class::Iterator for an explanation. This method is just a wrapper around secondary_users_iterator().

secondary_users_iterator([opts])

Like primary_users_iterator, only for secondary_users.

This is the same data as secondary_users() returns, but is more efficient since it pages the results and only fetches one at a time.

gid

Alias for calling primaryGroupToken() method. Note that primaryGroupToken is dynamically generated by the server and cannot be assigned (set).

action_for_create([ cn => cn_value ])

Add a group to the database.

May be called as a class method with explicit cn key/value pair.

action_for_update

Save new cn (name) for an existing group.

action_for_delete( [cn => cn_value] )

Removes array ref of actions for removing the Group.

You may call this as a class method with an explicit cn key/value pair.

add_user( user_object )

Push user_object onto the list of member() DNs, checking that user_object is not already on the list.

remove_user( user_object )

Drop user_object from the list of member() DNs, checking that user_object is already on the list.
