DESCRIPTION


The ldap_get_entry_controls() function retrieves the LDAP v3 controls
included in a directory entry in a chain of search results. The LDAP
controls are specified in an array of LDAPControl structures. Each
LDAPControl structure represents an LDAP control. The function takes
entry as a parameter, which points to an LDAPMessage structure that
represents an entry in a chain of search results.


The entry notification controls that are used with persistent search
controls are the only controls that are returned with individual entries.
Other controls are returned with results sent from the server. You can
call ldap_parse_result() to retrieve those controls.

LDAP_SUCCESS

LDAP_DECODING_ERROR
An error occurred when decoding the BER-encoded
message.
