LDAPEXOP(1)                                                        LDAPEXOP(1)

       ldapexop - issue LDAP extended operations

       ldapexop [-V[V]] [-d debuglevel] [-n] [-v] [-f file] [-x] [-D binddn] [-W] [-w passwd] [-y passwdfile] [-H URI]
       [-h ldaphost] [-p ldapport] [-e [!]ext[=extparam]] [-o opt[=optparam]] [-O security-properties] [-I] [-Q]  [-N]
       [-U authcid] [-R realm] [-X authzid] [-Y mech] [-Z[Z]] {oid | oid:data | oid::b64data | whoami | cancel cancel-
       id | refresh DN [ttl]}

       ldapexop issues the LDAP extended operation specified by oid or one of the special keywords whoami, cancel,  or

       Additional data for the extended operation can be passed to the server using data or base-64 encoded as b64data
       in the case of oid, or using the additional parameters in the case of the specially named  extended  operations

       Please note that ldapexop behaves differently for the same extended operation when it was given as an OID or as
       a specialliy named operation:

       Calling ldapexop with the OID of the whoami (RFC 4532) extended operation

         ldapexop [<options>]


         # extended operation response
         data:: <base64 encoded response data>

       while calling it with the keyword whoami

         ldapexop [<options>] whoami

       results in

         dn:<client's identity>

       -V[V]  Print version info.  If-VV is given, only the version information is printed.

       -d debuglevel
              Set the LDAP debugging level to debuglevel.

       -n     Show what would be done but don't actually do it.  Useful for debugging in conjunction with -v.

       -v     Run in verbose mode, with many diagnostics written to standard output.

       -f file
              Read operations from file.

       -x     Use simple authentication instead of SASL.

       -D binddn
              Use the Distinguished Name binddn to bind to the LDAP directory.

       -W     Prompt for simple authentication.  This is used instead of specifying the password on the command  line.

       -w passwd
              Use passwd as the password for simple authentication.

       -y passwdfile
              Use complete contents of passwdfile as the password for simple authentication.

       -H URI Specify  URI(s)  referring to the ldap server(s); only the protocol/host/port fields are allowed; a list
              of URI, separated by whitespace or commas is expected.

       -h ldaphost
              Specify the host on which the ldap server is running.  Deprecated in favor of -H.

       -p ldapport
              Specify the TCP port where the ldap server is listening.  Deprecated in favor of -H.

       -e [!]ext[=extparam]
              Specify general extensions.  ?!? indicates criticality.
                [!]assert=<filter>    (an RFC 4515 Filter)
                !authzid=<authzid>    ("dn:<dn>" or "u:<user>")
                [!]bauthzid           (RFC 3829 authzid control)
                [!]postread[=<attrs>] (a comma-separated attribute list)
                [!]preread[=<attrs>]  (a comma-separated attribute list)
                abandon,cancel,ignore (SIGINT sends abandon/cancel,
                or ignores response; if critical, doesn't wait for SIGINT.
                not really controls)

       -o opt[=optparam]

              Specify general options.

              General options:
                nettimeout=<timeout>  (in seconds, or "none" or "max")
                ldif-wrap=<width>     (in columns, or "no" for no wrapping)

       -O security-properties
              Specify SASL security properties.

       -I     Enable SASL Interactive mode.  Always prompt.  Default is to prompt only as needed.

       -Q     Enable SASL Quiet mode.  Never prompt.

       -N     Do not use reverse DNS to canonicalize SASL host name.

       -U authcid
              Specify the authentication ID for SASL bind. The form of the ID depends on  the  actual  SASL  mechanism

       -R realm
              Specify  the  realm of authentication ID for SASL bind. The form of the realm depends on the actual SASL
              mechanism used.

       -X authzid
              Specify the requested authorization ID for SASL bind.  authzid must be one  of  the  following  formats:
              dn:<distinguished name> or u:<username>

       -Y mech
              Specify  the SASL mechanism to be used for authentication.  Without this option, the program will choose
              the best mechanism the server knows.

       -Z[Z]  Issue StartTLS (Transport Layer Security) extended operation.  Giving it twice (-ZZ)  will  require  the
              operation to be successful.

       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.
