LDAP_MODIFY(3)							LDAP_MODIFY(3)

NAME
       ldap_modify, ldap_modify_s - Perform an LDAP modify operation

LIBRARY
       OpenLDAP LDAP (libldap, -lldap)

SYNOPSIS
       #include <ldap.h>

       int ldap_modify(ld, dn, mods)
       LDAP *ld;
       char *dn;
       LDAPMod *mods[];

       int ldap_modify_s(ld, dn, mods)
       LDAP *ld;
       char *dn;
       LDAPMod *mods[];

       void ldap_mods_free( mods, freemods )
       LDAPMod **mods;
       int freemods;

DESCRIPTION
       The  routine  ldap_modify_s()  is used to perform an LDAP modify opera‐
       tion.  dn is the DN of the entry to modify, and mods is	a  null-termi‐
       nated array of modifications to make to the entry.  Each element of the
       mods array is a pointer to  an  LDAPMod	structure,  which  is  defined
       below.

	    typedef struct ldapmod {
		int mod_op;
		char *mod_type;
		union {
		 char **modv_strvals;
		 struct berval **modv_bvals;
		} mod_vals;
		struct ldapmod *mod_next;
	    } LDAPMod;
	    #define mod_values mod_vals.modv_strvals
	    #define mod_bvalues mod_vals.modv_bvals

       The mod_op field is used to specify the type of modification to perform
       and   should   be   one	 of    LDAP_MOD_ADD,	LDAP_MOD_DELETE,    or
       LDAP_MOD_REPLACE.   The	mod_type  and  mod_values  fields  specify the
       attribute type to modify and a null-terminated array of values to  add,
       delete,	or  replace  respectively.  The mod_next field is used only by
       the LDAP server and may be ignored by the client.

       If you need to specify a non-string value (e.g.,	 to  add  a  photo  or
       audio  attribute value), you should set mod_op to the logical OR of the
       operation  as  above  (e.g.,   LDAP_MOD_REPLACE)	  and	the   constant
       LDAP_MOD_BVALUES.   In this case, mod_bvalues should be used instead of
       mod_values, and it should point to a null-terminated  array  of	struct
       bervals, as defined in <lber.h>.

       For  LDAP_MOD_ADD  modifications,  the  given  values  are added to the
       entry, creating the attribute if necessary.  For LDAP_MOD_DELETE	 modi‐
       fications,  the	given  values are deleted from the entry, removing the
       attribute if no values remain.	If  the	 entire	 attribute  is	to  be
       deleted,	  the	mod_values   field   should   be  set  to  NULL.   For
       LDAP_MOD_REPLACE modifications, the attribute will have the listed val‐
       ues after the modification, having been created if necessary.  All mod‐
       ifications are performed in the order in which they are listed.

       ldap_modify_s() returns the LDAP error code resulting from  the	modify
       operation.  This code can be interpreted by ldap_perror(3) and friends.

       The  ldap_modify()  operation  works  the  same way as ldap_modify_s(),
       except that it is asynchronous, returning the message id of the request
       it  initiates,  or  -1  on  error.   The result of the operation can be
       obtained by calling ldap_result(3).

       ldap_mods_free() can be used to free each element of a  NULL-terminated
       array  of  mod  structures.   If freemods is non-zero, the mods pointer
       itself is freed as well.

ERRORS
       ldap_modify_s() returns an ldap error code, either LDAP_SUCCESS	or  an
       error  if there was trouble.  ldap_modify() returns -1 in case of trou‐
       ble, setting the ld_errno field of ld.
