Net::LDAP::Extension::SetPassword
LDAPv3 Modify Password extension object

Net::LDAP::Extension::SetPassword - LDAPv3 Modify Password extension object


NAME

Net::LDAP::Extension::SetPassword - LDAPv3 Modify Password extension object


SYNOPSIS


 use Net::LDAP;

 use Net::LDAP::Extension::SetPassword;

 $ldap = Net::LDAP->new( "ldap.mydomain.eg" );

 $ldap->bind('cn=Joe User,cn=People,dc=mydomain,dc=eg",

             password => 'oldPassword');

 $mesg = $ldap->set_password( oldpasswd => 'oldPassword' );

 die "error: ", $mesg->code(), ": ", $mesg->error()  if ($mesg->code());

 

 print "changed your password to", $mesg->gen_passwd() , "\n";


DESCRIPTION

Net::LDAP::Extension::SetPassword implements the Modify Password extended LDAPv3 operation as described in RFC 3062.

It implements no object by itself but extends the the Net::LDAP manpage object by another method:


METHODS

set_password ( OPTIONS )
Set the password for a user.

OPTIONS is a list of key/value pairs. The following keys are recognized:

user
If present, this option contains the octet string representation of the user associated with the request. Depending on how users are identified in the directory this string may or may not be a DN according to RFC 2253.

If this option is not present present, the request acts up upon the password of the user currently associated with the LDAP session.

oldpasswd
This option, if present, must contain the current password of the user for whom this operation is performed.

It depends on the server's implementation in which cirumstances this option is allowed to be missing.

newpasswd
If present, this option contains the desired password for the user for whom the operation is performed.

Depending on the server's implementation this option may be required by the LDAP server.

gen_password ( )
Return the password generated in the previous set_password() call.

This method is a method of the the Net::LDAP::Message manpage response object returned in reply to set_password() in case the set_password() call succeeded.

By this method the caller can query for the value of the password in case he did not call set_password() with the newpasswd option.
