NAME
ldap_is_ldap_url, ldap_url_parse, ldap_free_urldesc - LDAP Uniform Resource Locator routines
LIBRARY
OpenLDAP LDAP (libldap, -lldap)
SYNOPSIS
#include <ldap.h> int ldap_is_ldap_url( const char *url ) int ldap_url_parse( const char *url, LDAPURLDesc **ludpp ) typedef struct ldap_url_desc { char * lud_scheme; /* URI scheme */ char * lud_host; /* LDAP host to contact */ int lud_port; /* port on host */ char * lud_dn; /* base for search */ char ** lud_attrs; /* list of attributes */ int lud_scope; /* a LDAP_SCOPE_... value */ char * lud_filter; /* LDAP search filter */ char ** lud_exts; /* LDAP extensions */ int lud_crit_exts; /* true if any extension is critical */ /* may contain additional fields for internal use */ } LDAPURLDesc; void ldap_free_urldesc( LDAPURLDesc *ludp );
DESCRIPTION
These routines support the use of LDAP URLs (Uniform Resource Locators) as detailed in RFC 4516. LDAP URLs look like this: ldap://hostport/dn[?attrs[?scope[?filter[?exts]]]] where: hostport is a host name with an optional ":portnumber" dn is the search base attrs is a comma separated list of attributes to request scope is one of these three strings: base one sub (default=base) filter is filter exts are recognized set of LDAP and/or API extensions. Example: ldap://ldap.example.net/dc=example,dc=net?cn,sn?sub?(cn=*) URLs that are wrapped in angle-brackets and/or preceded by "URL:" are also tolerated. Alternative LDAP schemes such as ldaps:// and ldapi:// may be parsed using the below routines as well. ldap_is_ldap_url() returns a non-zero value if url looks like an LDAP URL (as opposed to some other kind of URL). It can be used as a quick check for an LDAP URL; the ldap_url_parse() routine should be used if a more thorough check is needed. ldap_url_parse() breaks down an LDAP URL passed in url into its compo- nent pieces. If successful, zero is returned, an LDAP URL description is allocated, filled in, and ludpp is set to point to it. If an error occurs, a non-zero URL error code is returned. ldap_free_urldesc() should be called to free an LDAP URL description that was obtained from a call to ldap_url_parse().
