Get a CSV formatted list, based on a custom set of LDAP attributes.

Project description

LDAP Attributes Selector

This command line program, allows you to query an LDAP server and retrieve a custom set of provided attributes. The results are given in CSV format, though they are not written to a CSV file unless explicitly specified.

Whenever an LDAP entry doesn't have any of the provided attributes, a None value is set, instead!.


Make sure you meet the following requirements:

Also, note that when establishing an SSL connection, depending on the security settings in your LDAP server, you might gonna need to perform some additional configuration on your LDAP client!.

As a general rule, if you are able to make an LDAP query with the ldapsearch tool, this program should work as well!.


You can install it with pip:

pip install ldap-attributes-selector

Get a CSV formatted list, based on a custom set of LDAP attributes

positional arguments:
  SERVER                URI formatted address (IP or domain name) of the LDAP
  BASEDN                Specify the searchbase or base DN of the LDAP server
  ATTRIBUTES            A set of comma separated LDAP attributes to list

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -u USERDN, --userdn USERDN
                        Distinguished Name (DN) of the user to bind to the
                        LDAP directory
                        The amount of per-page entries to retrieve (Default:
  -f FILTER, --filter FILTER
                        Specify an LDAP filter (Default: 'objectClass=*')
  -w WRITETOCSV, --writetocsv WRITETOCSV
                        Write results to a CSV file!.
  -v, --version         Show current version


In the following example, an encrypted LDAP query (note the ldaps:// when specifying the LDAP server) is made, and the attributes name, mail and ipPhone are retrieved. Also, LDAP filter objectClass=person is set:

ldap-attributes-selector ldaps:// "dc=somecorp,dc=com" -u "cn=Joe,ou=Users,dc=somecorp,dc=com" "name,mail,ipPhone" -f objectClass=person

Unlike the previous example, on the following one, the query isn't encrypted and a different LDAP filter is used:

ldap-attributes-selector ldap:// "dc=somecorp,dc=com" -u "uid=zimbra,cn=admins,cn=zimbra" "givenName,mail,zimbraAccountStatus" -f 'objectClass=inetOrgPerson'

This one is similar to the first one except that, this time, the retrieved results, are gonna be exported to a CSV file!:

ldap-attributes-selector ldaps:// "dc=somecorp,dc=com" -u "cn=joe,ou=Users,dc=somecorp,dc=com" "name,mail,ipPhone" -f objectClass=person -w users.csv

If no user identity (in DN format!) is specified (-u argument), an anonymous LDAP query is performed, as in the following example:

ldap-attributes-selector ldap:// "dc=somecorp,dc=com" "sn,givenName,mail"
