NAME

Catalyst::Model::LDAP::Entry - Convenience methods for Net::LDAP::Entry

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



    # In your controller
    my $mesg = $c->model(Person)->search((cn=Lou Rhodes));
    my $entry = $mesg->shift_entry;
    print $entry->title;



DESCRIPTION

This module simplifies use of Net::LDAP::Entry objects in your application. It makes accessors and mutators for all attributes on an entry. For example:



    print $entry->cn;



It also stores a reference to the parent LDAP connection, simplifying updates to the entry:



    $entry->title(Folk singer);
    $entry->update;



ADDING ENTRY METHODS

If you want to provide your own methods on an LDAP entry, you can use the entry_class configuration variable. For example:



    # In lib/MyApp/Model/LDAP.pm
    package MyApp::Model::LDAP;
    use base qw/Catalyst::Model::LDAP/;

    __PACKAGE__->config(
        # ...
        entry_class => MyApp::LDAP::Entry,
    );

    1;

    # In lib/MyApp/LDAP/Entry.pm
    package MyApp::LDAP::Entry;
    use base qw/Catalyst::Model::LDAP::Entry/;
    use DateTime::Format::Strptime;

    sub get_date {
        my ($self, $attribute) = @_;

        my ($datetime) = ($self->get_value($attribute) =~ /^(\d{14})/);

        my $parser = DateTime::Format::Strptime->new(
            pattern     => %Y%m%d%H%M%S,
            locale      => en_US,
            time_zone   => UTC
        );

        return $parser->parse_datetime($datetime);
    }

    1;



METHODS

    new

Override the Net::LDAP::Entry object constructor to take an optional LDAP handle. If provided this will be used automatically on update.

    update

Override update to default to the optional LDAP handle provided to the constructor.

    can

Override can to declare existence of the LDAP entry attribute methods from AUTOLOAD.
