Catalyst::Model::LDAP - LDAP model class for Catalyst

version 0.21

This is the L<Net::LDAP> model class for Catalyst.  It is nothing more
than a simple wrapper for L<Net::LDAP>.

This class simplifies LDAP access by letting you configure a common
set of bind arguments.  It also lets you configure a base DN for

Please refer to the L<Net::LDAP> documentation for information on what
else is available.


The following configuration parameters are supported:

=over 4

=item * C<host>

The LDAP server's fully qualified domain name (FQDN),
e.g. C<>.  Can also be an IP address, e.g. C<>.

=item * C<base>

The base distinguished name (DN) for searching the directory,
e.g. C<ou=People,dc=ufl,dc=edu>.

=item * C<dn>

(Optional) The bind DN for connecting to the directory,
e.g. C<dn=admin,dc=ufl,dc=edu>.  This can be anyone that has
permission to search under the base DN, as per your LDAP server's
access control lists.

=item * C<password>

(Optional) The password for the specified bind DN.

=item * C<start_tls>

(Optional) Set to C<1> to use TLS when binding to the LDAP server, for
secure connections.

=item * C<start_tls_options>

(Optional) A hashref containing options to use when binding using TLS
to the LDAP server.

=item * C<options>

(Optional) A hashref containing options to pass to
L<Catalyst::Model::LDAP::Connection/search>.  For example, this can be
used to set a sizelimit.

NOTE: In previous versions, these options were passed to all
L<Net::LDAP> methods.  This has changed to allow a cleaner connection
interface.  If you still require this behavior, create a class
inheriting from L<Catalyst::Model::LDAP::Connection> that overrides
the specific methods and set C<connection_class>.

=item * C<connection_class>

(Optional) The class or package name that wraps L<Net::LDAP>.
Defaults to L<Catalyst::Model::LDAP::Connection>.

See also L<Catalyst::Model::LDAP::Connection/OVERRIDING METHODS>.

=item * C<entry_class>

(Optional) The class or package name to rebless L<Net::LDAP::Entry>
objects as.  Defaults to L<Catalyst::Model::LDAP::Entry>.

See also L<Catalyst::Model::LDAP::Entry/ADDING ENTRY METHODS>.




Bind the client using the current configuration and return it.  This
method is automatically called when you use e.g. C<< $c->model('LDAP') >>.

See L<Catalyst::Model::LDAP::Connection/bind> for information on how
the bind operation is done.
