LDAP_REFERRAL_CALLBACK structure

The LDAP_REFERRAL_CALLBACK structure is used to implement external caching of connections. This structure is used only when tracking referrals.

Syntax


typedef struct LdapReferralCallback {
  ULONG                 SizeOfCallbacks;
  QUERYFORCONNECTION    *QueryForConnection;
  NOTIFYOFNEWCONNECTION *NotifyRoutine;
  DEREFERENCECONNECTION *DereferenceRoutine;
} LDAP_REFERRAL_CALLBACK, *PLDAP_REFERRAL_CALLBACK;

Members

SizeOfCallbacks

The amount of memory required for the callback. Set this field to sizeof(LDAP_REFERRAL_CALLBACK).

QueryForConnection

A pointer to a callback function to determine whether there is a cached connection cached available. For more information, see Remarks.

NotifyRoutine

A pointer to a callback function that determines whether a new connection will be cached or destroyed after the operation completes. For more information, see Remarks.

DereferenceRoutine

A pointer to a callback function to dereference a connection that is not in use. For more information, see Remarks.

Remarks

Use the LDAP_REFERRAL_CALLBACK structure to implement a mechanism for caching connections. The structure contains three callback functions which you implement in your client code.

QUERYFORCONNECTION: If a connection is available, this function should return a pointer to the connection to use in ConnectionToUse. If no connection is available, the function should set ConnectionToUse to NULL. The signature for this callback function is as follows.


typedef ULONG (_cdecl QUERYFORCONNECTION)(
    PLDAP       PrimaryConnection,
    PLDAP       ReferralFromConnection,
    PWCHAR      NewDN,
    PCHAR       HostName,
    ULONG       PortNumber,
    PVOID       SecAuthIdentity,    // If NULL, use CurrentUser below
    PVOID       CurrentUserToken,   // pointer to current user LUID.
    PLDAP       *ConnectionToUse
);

NOTIFYOFNEWCONNECTION: The run time calls this function if a new connection was created in the course of chasing a referral. This function should return FALSE if not required to cache the connection. When FALSE is returned, the connection is destroyed when the operation completes. The function should return TRUE if it has taken ownership of the connection and the connection will be cached. Be aware that any new connections so created inherit the current callbacks from the primary connection on which the request was initiated. The signature for this function is.


typedef BOOLEAN (_cdecl NOTIFYOFNEWCONNECTION) 
    (
    PLDAP       PrimaryConnection,
    PLDAP       ReferralFromConnection,
    PWCHAR      NewDN,
    PCHAR       HostName,
    PLDAP       NewConnection,
    ULONG       PortNumber,
    PVOID       SecAuthIdentity,    // If null, use CurrentUser below.
    PVOID       CurrentUser,        // Pointer to current user LUID.
    ULONG       ErrorCodeFromBind   // If nonzero, bind to server failed.
    );

DEREFERENCECONNECTION: The LDAP run time calls this function to dereference a connection that is no longer required. The connection may have come from a successful call to QueryForConnection or from NotifyOfNewConnection. The function should return LDAP_SUCCESS if the call succeeds; currently, however, the run time ignores the return value. The signature for this function is as follows.


typedef ULONG (_cdecl DEREFERENCECONNECTION)
    (
    PLDAP       PrimaryConnection,
    PLDAP       ConnectionToDereference
    );

To configure a session to use callbacks to obtain a cached connection, call ldap_set_option (conn, LDAP_OPT_REFERRAL_CALLBACK, &referralRoutines), where referralRoutines is the address of the LDAP_REFERRAL_CALLBACK structure that contains your routines. The addresses may be NULL, in which case the LDAP run time will not make the calls.

The parameter descriptions for the preceding three functions are as follows:

  • PrimaryConnection

    The LDAP connection handle on which the operation was originally performed. For example, the handle passed in to a call to ldap_search, ldap_result, ldap_add, and so on.

  • ReferralFromConnection

    The connection which sent the referral currently tracked. Referrals can be tracked across multiple "hops". For example, the referral can be from the original server to a second server, then the second server can refer the operation to a third server, and so on. If ReferralFromConnection equates to PrimaryConnection, the first "hop" is being tracked (a referral sent from the original server).

  • NewDN

    Pointer to a wide, null-terminated string that contains the DN of the referred-to object.

  • HostName

    Pointer to a null-terminated string that contains the name of the referred-to server; that is the server to which a connection must be made.

  • PortNumber

    Port on the referred-to server, to which a connection must be made.

  • SecAuthIdentity

    The SEC_WINNT_AUTH_IDENTITY or SEC_WINNT_AUTH_IDENTITY_EX for the credentials used when tracking the referral, or a NULL if the user's default credentials are used.

  • CurrentUserToken/CurrentUser

    The AuthenticationID LUID of the user for which a connection is required. If SecAuthIdentity is NULL, use this parameter to identify the user.

  • NewConnection

    Used to announce the existence of the new connection.

  • ErrorCodeFromBind

    Error code returned from ldap_bind_s when an attempt is made to bind to the newly created connection (NewConnection).

  • ConnectionToDereference

    The connection to be dereferenced.
