AddressBook::DB::LDAP(User Contributed Perl DocumentatAddressBook::DB::LDAP(3)

NAME
       AddressBook::DB::LDAP - Backend for AddressBook to use LDAP.

SYNOPSIS
	 use AddressBook;
	 $a = AddressBook->new(source => "LDAP:hostname/ou=People,dc=example,dc=com",
			       username	=> "user", password => "pass");
	 $a->add($entry) || die	$a->code;

DESCRIPTION
       The Net::LDAP library module is required	in order to use	this package.

       AddressBook::DB::LDAP supports random access backend database methods.

       Behavior	can be modified	using the following options:

       key_fields
	   A list of LDAP attribute names (not cannonical names) which can be
	   used	to uniquely identify an	entry.

       hostname
	   The LDAP host to which to connect.

       base
	   The base for	LDAP queries.

       objectclass
	   The objectclass for AddressBook entries.

       username
	   An LDAP dn to use for accessing the server.

       password
       dn_calculate
	   A perl expression which, when eval'd	returns	a valid	LDAP "dn"
	   (omitting the "base"	part of	the dn).  Other	attributes may be
	   referenced as "$<attr>".

	   For example,	if LDAP	entries	have a dn like:	"cn=John
	   Doe,mail=jdoe@mail.com", then use the following:

	     dn_calculate="'cn=' . $cn . ',mail=' . $mail"

       Any of these options may	be specified in	the constructor, or in the
       configuration file.

   new
	 $a = AddressBook->new(source => "LDAP");
	 $a = AddressBook->new(source => "LDAP:localhost/ou=People,dc=example,dc=com");
	 $a = AddressBook->new(source => "LDAP",
			       hostname=>"localhost",
			       base=>"o=test"
			       );

       Any or all options may be specified in the constructor, or in the
       configuration file.

   Timestamps
       For syncronization purposes, all	records	are timestamped	using the
       "modifytimestamp" LDAP attribute.  If the record	has no
       "modifytimestamp", "createtimestamp" is used.  If there is no
       "createtimestamp", the current time is used.
