LDAP_ADD(3LDAP) LDAP Library Functions LDAP_ADD(3LDAP)


NAME


ldap_add, ldap_add_s, ldap_add_ext, ldap_add_ext_s - perform an LDAP add
operation

SYNOPSIS


cc[ flag... ] file... -lldap[ library... ]
#include <lber.h>
#include <ldap.h>

intldap_add(LDAP *ld, char *dn, LDAPMod *attrs[]);


intldap_add_s(LDAP *ld, char *dn, LDAPMod *attrs[]);


int ldap_add_ext(LDAP *ld, char *dn, LDAPMod **attrs,
LDAPControl **serverctrls, int * msgidp);


int ldap_add_ext_s(LDAP *ld, char *dn, LDAPMod **attrs,
LDAPControl **serverctrls, LDAPControl **clientctrls);


DESCRIPTION


The ldap_add_s() function is used to perform an LDAP add operation. It
takes dn, the DN of the entry to add, and attrs, a null-terminated array
of the entry's attributes. The LDAPMod structure is used to represent
attributes, with the mod_type and mod_values fields being used as
described under ldap_modify(3LDAP), and the ldap_op field being used only
if you need to specify the LDAP_MOD_BVALUES option. Otherwise, it should
be set to zero.


Note that all entries except that specified by the last component in the
given DN must already exist. ldap_add_s() returns an LDAP error code
indicating success or failure of the operation. See ldap_error(3LDAP)
for more details.


The ldap_add() function works just like ldap_add_s(), but it is
asynchronous. It returns the message id of the request it initiated.
The result of this operation can be obtained by calling
ldap_result(3LDAP).


The ldap_add_ext() function initiates an asynchronous add operation and
returns LDAP_SUCCESS if the request was successfully sent to the server,
or else it returns a LDAP error code if not (see ldap_error(3LDAP)). If
successful, ldap_add_ext() places the message id of *msgidp. A
subsequent call to ldap_result(), can be used to obtain the result of
the add request.


The ldap_add_ext_s() function initiates a synchronous add operation and
returns the result of the operation itself.

ERRORS


ldap_add() returns -1 in case of error initiating the request, and will
set the ld_errno field in the ld parameter to indicate the error.
ldap_add_s() will return an LDAP error code directly.
