NAME

Net::LDAP::Control::Assertion - LDAPv3 Assertion Control  

SYNOPSIS

 use Net::LDAP;
 use Net::LDAP::Control::Assertion;

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

 $assert = Net::LDAP::Control::Assertion->new( assertion => '(sn=Jensen)' );

 my $mesg = $ldap->modify( "cn=Barbara Jensen, o=University of Michigan, c=US",
                           replace => { givenName => "Babs" },
                           control => $assert );

 

DESCRIPTION

"Net::LDAP::Control::Assertion" provides an interface for the creation and manipulation of objects that represent the "Assertion Control" as described by RFC 4528.

The "Assertion Control" allows the client to specify a condition, an assertion, that must be TRUE for the operation to be processed normally. Otherwise, the operation is not performed. For instance, the control can be used with the Modify operation to perform atomic ``test and set'' and ``test and clear'' operations.

The control is appropriate for both LDAP interrogation and update operations, including Add, Compare, Delete, Modify, ModifyDN (rename), and Search.  

CONSTRUCTOR ARGUMENTS

In addition to the constructor arguments described in Net::LDAP::Control the following are provided.
assertion => FILTER
A filter specifying the assertion that must evaluate to TRUE in order to make the operation process normally.
 

METHODS

As with Net::LDAP::Control each constructor argument described above is also available as a method on the object which will return the current value for the attribute if called without an argument, and set a new value for the attribute if called with an argument.
