NAME ^

Net::LDAP::Class::User::POSIX - user class for POSIX LDAP schema

SYNOPSIS ^

 # subclass this class for your local LDAP
 package MyLDAPUser;
 use base qw( Net::LDAP::Class::User::POSIX );
 
 __PACKAGE__->metadata->setup(
    base_dn             => 'dc=mycompany,dc=com',
    attributes          => __PACKAGE__->POSIX_attributes,
    unique_attributes   => __PACKAGE__->POSIX_unique_attributes,
 );
 
 1;
 
 # then use your class
 my $ldap = get_and_bind_LDAP_object(); # you write this
 
 use MyLDAPUser;
 my $user = MyLDAPUser->new( ldap => $ldap, uid  => 'foobar' );
 $user->read_or_create;
 for my $group ($user->group, @{ $user->groups }) {
     printf("user %s in group %s\n", $user, $group);
 }

DESCRIPTION ^

Net::LDAP::Class::User::POSIX isa Net::LDAP::Class::User implementing the POSIX LDAP schema.

CLASS METHODS ^

POSIX_attributes

Returns array ref of default POSIX attributes.

POSIX_unique_attributes

Returns array ref of unique POSIX attributes: uid and uidNumber.

OBJECT METHODS ^

All the init_* methods can be specified to the new() constructor without the init_ prefix.

init_default_shell

Returns /bin/bash.

init_default_home_dir

Returns /home.

init_default_email_suffix

Returns an empty string.

action_for_create([ uid => username, uidNumber => nnn ])

Returns hash ref suitable for creating a Net::LDAP::Batch::Action::Add.

May be called as a class method with explicit uid and uidNumber key/value pairs.

setup_for_write

Utility method for generating default values for various attributes. Called by both action_for_create() and action_for_update().

Returns array of values in this order:

 $groupname, $gid, $givenName, $sn, $gecos, $email, $passwordHash

action_for_update

Returns array ref suitable for creating a Net::LDAP::Batch::Action::Update.

action_for_delete

Returns hash ref suitable for creating a Net::LDAP::Batch::Action::Delete.

fetch_group

Required MethodMaker method for retrieving primary group from LDAP.

Returns an object of type group_class().

fetch_groups

Required MethodMaker method for retrieving secondary groups from LDAP.

Returns array or array ref (based on context) of objects of type group_class().

groups_iterator([opts])

Returns a Net::LDAP::Class::Iterator object for same data as fetch_groups().

See the advice in Net::LDAP::Class::Iterator about iterators versus arrays.

gid

Alias for gidNumber() attribute.

password([plain_password])

Convenience wrapper around userPassword() attribute method.

This method will SHA-1-hashify plain_password using ssha_hash() and set the hash in the ldap_entry(). If no argument is supplied, returns the hash string set in ldap_entry() (if any).

new_password([len])

Returns a SHA-1-hashed password from a random string of length len. Default length is 8 characters. This method is just a simple wrapper around ssha_hash() and random_string().

ssha_hash( string )

Returns seeded hash of string using SHA-1. See http://www.openldap.org/faq/data/cache/347.html

NOTE: The hash will contain the LDAP-required {SSHA} prefix. If the prefix is already present, will return string untouched.
