Example Code for Adding a New Directory Entry

The following code example creates LDAPMod structures for a new entry with six initial attributes, and then constructs an array of these structures to pass to ldap_add (the asynchronous add function).


#include <winldap.h>
ULONG CallValue;

// Attributes include Name, Class, First name, Last name, Title, and Telephone number
LDAPMod Name, OClass, FName, LName, Title, Phone;
LDAP *ld = ldap_init(NULL,LDAP_PORT);

CallValue = ldap_connect(ld,NULL);

if(CallValue!=LDAP_SUCCESS)
{
    return 0;
}


// Specify the distinguished name for the entry.
char *entry_dn = "cn=Jeff Smith,CN=Users";

char *cn_values[] = { "Jeff Smith", NULL };
Name.mod_op = LDAP_MOD_ADD;
Name.mod_type = "cn";
Name.mod_values = cn_values;. 

char *oc_values[] = { "user", NULL };
OClass.mod_op = LDAP_MOD_ADD;
OClass.mod_type = "objectClass";
OClass.mod_values = oc_values;. 

char *gn_values[] = { "Jeff", NULL };
FName.mod_op = LDAP_MOD_ADD;
FName.mod_type = "givenName";
FName.mod_values = gn_values;. 

char *sn_values[] = { "Smith", NULL };
LName.mod_op = LDAP_MOD_ADD;
LName.mod_type = "sn";
LName.mod_values = sn_values;. 

char *ti_values[] = { "Developer", NULL };
Title.mod_op = LDAP_MOD_ADD;
Title.mod_type = "title";
Title.mod_values = ti_values;. 

char *pn_values[] = { "425) 555-0174", NULL };
Phone.mod_op = LDAP_MOD_ADD;
Phone.mod_type = "telephoneNumber";
Phone.mod_values = pn_values;. 

// Build the array of attributes. 
LDAPMod *NewEntry[7];

NewEntry[0] = &Name;
NewEntry[1] = &OClass
NewEntry[2] = &FName;
NewEntry[3] = &LName;
NewEntry[4] = &Title;
NewEntry[5] = &Phone;
NewEntry[6] = NULL;

// Add the entry.
CallValue = ldap_add( ld, entry_dn, NewEntry);

// Pass CallValue to ldap_result to verify the 
// status of the asynchronous operation.

CallValue = ldap_unbind(ld);
