I am playing with access controls on openldap 2.4.26, I have a user with
search access on everything
access to *
by anonymous auth
by dn="uid=102,ou=system,dc=example,dc=com" search
And when I perform search I get nothing
ldapsearch -H "ldap://testldap:389" -D
"uid=102,ou=system,dc=example,dc=com" -b "ou=users,dc=example,dc=com" -x
-W '(uid=1)' mail cn dn
Enter LDAP Password:
# extended LDIF
# base <ou=users,dc=example,dc=com> with scope subtree
# filter: (uid=1)
# requesting: mail cn dn
# search result
result: 0 Success
# numResponses: 1
so I get a success but no value, is it a valid response?
Yes, it's a valid response. You haven't given Read access to anything, so no values can be returned. But the search base existed and you had search access to it, so the search request succeeded.It seems to me that what you want cannot be done. You need Read access in order to retrieve any values. Read access includes Search access. So if you are able to read the value of an attribute, you are allowed to Search for it as well.
I want to control
access so that the "uid=102" user can do lookup from given attributes but
can not do (objectClass=*) to get a list of every entry in the ldap.
Thanks for the help
Other way of stating my problem is I want to control query filters on the
server side so the user with "uid=102" can only do query using filter (uid=.+)
, all other filters should be restricted. I tried this regular _expression_ but
getting no such object error.
