A set of tools to make managing LDAP users, groups, and keys easier

Project description

LDAP Tools

This LDAP tools gem is designed as a wrapper around ldap3 to make interacting with LDAP easier. No knowledge of LDIF required.


Use pyenv to install python 3.5.3 (or 3.6.4)

The following items are installed automatically as part of the pip install: - ldap3 - click - sshpubkeys - pyyaml


Installation from pypi

pip install ldap-tools

Installation from source

pip install git+


There are two files used by this application. The default location is $HOME/.ldap; however, this can be overridden using the LDAP_CONFIG_DIR environment variable


This config file provides basic information about your LDAP server setup.

server: # LDAP server
user_dn: # DN of user to interact with LDAP
port: # LDAP port
basedn: #LDAP Base DN
mail_domain: # Domain to be used for user email addresses
service_ou: # Organization Unit (OU) for service accounts

Note: DN of a user is the unique name used to identify that user


This is a base64-encoded file with the LDAP root password.



This is the base command from which all other commands are launched
