ldapurl is a command that allows one to either compose or decompose LDAP URIs.

When invoked with the -H option, ldapurl extracts the components of the ldapurl option argument, unescaping hex-escaped chars as required. It basically acts as a frontend to the ldap_url_parse() call. Otherwise, it builds an LDAP URI based on the components passed with the appropriate options, performing the inverse operation. Option -H is incompatible with options -a, -b, -E, -f, -H, -h, -p, -S, and -s.


-a attrs 

Set a comma-separated list of attribute selectors.

-b searchbase 

Set the searchbase.

-f filter 

Set the URL filter. No particular check on conformity with RFC 4515 LDAP filters is performed, but the value is hex-escaped as required.

-H ldapuri 

Specify URI(s) referring to the ldap server(s); a list of URI, separated by whitespace or commas is expected; only the protocol/host/port fields are allowed. As an exception, if no host/port is specified, but a DN is, the DN is used to look up the corresponding host(s) using the DNS SRV records, according to RFC 2782. The DN must be a non-empty sequence of AVAs whose attribute type is "dc" (domain component), and must be escaped according to RFC 2396.

-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.


Specify general extensions with -e and search extensions with -E. '!' indicates criticality. General extensions:

[!]assert=<filter>   (an RFC 4515 Filter)
[!]authzid=<authzid> ("dn:<dn>" or "u:<user>")
[!]postread[=<attrs>]        (a comma-separated attribute list)
[!]preread[=<attrs>] (a comma-separated attribute list)
abandon,cancel,ignore (SIGINT sends abandon/cancel; or ignores repsonse; ; If critical doesn't wait for SIGINT. not really controls)

Search extensions:

[!]domainScope                       (domain scope)
[!]mv=<filter>                       (matched values filter)
[!]pr=<size>[/prompt|noprompt]       (paged results/prompt)
[!]sss=[-]<attr[:OID]>[/[-]<attr[:OID]>...]  (server side sorting)
[!]subentries[=true|false]           (subentries)
[!]sync=ro[/<cookie>]                (LDAP Sync refreshOnly)
        rp[/<cookie>][/<slimit>]     (LDAP Sync refreshAndPersist)
[!]vlv=<before>/<after>(/<offset>/<count>|:<value>)  (virtual list view)
-S scheme 

Set the URL scheme. Defaults for other fields, like ldapport, may depend on the value of scheme.


Specify the scope of the search to be one of base, one, sub, or children to specify a base object, one-level, subtree, or children search. The default is sub. Note: children scope requires LDAPv3 subordinate feature extension.


If the -H option is used, the ldapuri supplied is exploded in its components, which are printed to standard output in an LDIF-like form.

Otherwise, the URI built using the values passed with the other options is printed to standard output.


The following command:

ldapuri -h ldap.example.com -b dc=example,dc=com -s sub -f "(cn=Some One)"

returns ldap://ldap.example.com:389/dc=example,dc=com??sub?(cn=Some%20One)

The command:

ldapuri -H ldap://ldap.example.com:389/dc=example,dc=com??sub?(cn=Some%20One)


scheme: ldap
host: ldap.example.com
port: 389
dn: dc=example,dc=com
scope: sub
filter: (cn=Some One)


Possible exit status values are: 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.
