LDAPMBS.Add(distinguishedName as string, attrs() as LDAPModMBS)
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux iOS Targets
method LDAP MBS Network Plugin 15.0 ✅ Yes ✅ Yes ✅ Yes ✅ Yes All
Function: Adds attributes.
Example:
// add like this

dim m1 as new LDAPModMBS
dim m2 as new LDAPModMBS

m1.Operation = m1.kOperationAdd
m1.Type = "sn"
m1.addValue "yyy"

m2.Operation = m1.kOperationAdd
m2.Type = "cn"
m2.addValue "xxx"

dim attr() as LDAPModMBS
attr.Append m1
attr.Append m2

l.Add("test", attr)
Notes:
The Add function initiates a synchronous add operation that adds an entry to a tree. The parent of the entry being added must already exist or the parent must be empty (equal to the root distinguished name) for an add operation to succeed.

Before calling Add, you must create an entry by specifying its attributes in LDAPModMBS objects. Set the Operator member of each structure to kOperationAdd, and set the Type and Value members as appropriate for your entry.

LDAPMBS.Constructor(IP as string, Port as Integer, Open as Boolean = false, Secure as Boolean = false)
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux iOS Targets
method LDAP MBS Network Plugin 15.0 ✅ Yes ✅ Yes ✅ Yes ✅ Yes All
Function: Creates a connection to a LDAP server.
Example:
// connect with SSL
dim ldap as LDAPMBS

#if TargetWin32 then
ldap = new LDAPMBS("192.168.1.123", 636, false, true)
#else
ldap = new LDAPMBS("ldaps://192.168.1.123")
#endif
Notes:
If open is true, we connect directly to server.
Secure: For Windows Vista and newer. Set to true for a secure connection with SSL. (only for open=false)

For connecting via SSL, please use on Mac OS X the Constructor taking the URL and specify ldaps protocol. For Windows use this constructor with secure parameter set to true.

Changed with 16.0 to work on Mac with secure = true. For Windows we switch to Open = false if secure is true.

LDAPMBS.Modify(distinguishedName as string, attrs() as LDAPModMBS)
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux iOS Targets
method LDAP MBS Network Plugin 15.0 ✅ Yes ✅ Yes ✅ Yes ✅ Yes All
Function: Modifies an entry.
Notes:
Please pass one LDAPModMBS for each attribute to change.

The Modify function initiates a synchronous operation to modify an existing entry. If values are being added to or replaced in the entry, the function creates the attribute, if necessary. If values are being deleted, the function removes the attribute if no values remain. All modifications are performed in the order in which they are listed.

When connecting to an LDAP 2 server, the application must perform a bind operation (by calling one of the Bind or SimpleBind routines) before attempting any other operations.

if l.Lasterror <> 0 then
dim error as string = l.ErrorString(l.Lasterror)
Break
end if

// Bind to the server.
// In this example, the client binds anonymously to the server
// (no DN or credentials are specified).

l.SimpleBind("", "")
if l.Lasterror <> 0 then
dim error as string = l.ErrorString(l.Lasterror)
Break
end if

const BASEDN = "dc=example,dc=com"
const SCOPE = l.kScopeSubtree
const FILTER = "(sn=Jensen)"

dim results() as Dictionary = l.Search(BASEDN, SCOPE, FILTER)

for each dic as Dictionary in results
Break // look in debugger
next
Notes: The plugin will return result as array of Dictionaries, one for each item. Dictionary contains attributes with their values. A special entry has key = nil and as value the distinguish name of the item.
