Tool for testing code speaking with LDAP. Allows to easily configure and run an embedded, in-memory LDAP server. Uses UnboundID LDAP SDK through Py4J.

Latest Version: 0.2.0

Tool for testing code speaking with LDAP. Allows to easily configure and run an embedded, in-memory LDAP server. Uses UnboundID LDAP SDK through Py4J. Requires Java runtime on the system path to run the server.

Installation

With pip:

pip install python-ldap-test

When installing from source:

git clone https://github.com/zoldar/python-ldap-test
cd python-ldap-test
python setup.py install # you may need root privileges if installing system-wide

Usage

Example library usage with Python ldap client.

from ldap_test import LdapServer

server = LdapServer()

try:
    server.start()

    dn = server.config['bind_dn']
    pw = server.config['password']

    con = ldap.initialize('ldap://localhost:%s' % (server.config['port'],))
    con.simple_bind_s(dn, pw)

    base_dn = server.config['base']['dn']
    filter = '(objectclass=domain)'
    attrs = ['dc']

    print con.search_s(base_dn, ldap.SCOPE_SUBTREE, filter, attrs)

finally:
    server.stop()

Another example with non-standard settings:

from ldap_test import LdapServer

server = LdapServer({
    'port': 3333,
    'bind_dn': 'cn=admin,dc=zoldar,dc=net',
    'password': 'pass1',
    'base': {'objectclass': ['domain'],
             'dn': 'dc=zoldar,dc=net',
             'attributes': {'dc': 'zoldar'}},
    'entries': [
        {'objectclass': 'domain',
         'dn': 'dc=users,dc=zoldar,dc=net',
         'attributes': {'dc': 'users'}},
        {'objectclass': 'organization',
         'dn': 'o=foocompany,dc=users,dc=zoldar,dc=net',
         'attributes': {'o': 'foocompany'}},
    ]
})

try:
    server.start()

    dn = "cn=admin,dc=zoldar,dc=net"
    pw = "pass1"

    con = ldap.initialize('ldap://localhost:3333')
    con.simple_bind_s(dn, pw)

    base_dn = 'dc=zoldar,dc=net'
    filter = '(objectclass=domain)'
    attrs = ['o']

    print con.search_s(base_dn, ldap.SCOPE_SUBTREE, filter, attrs)

finally:
    server.stop()

The server initial configuration is represented by a simple dict, which may contain one or more optional parameters:

  • port - a port on which the LDAP server will listen
  • bind_dn - bind DN entry for authentication
  • password - authentication password
  • base - base DN entry
  • entries - a list of dicts representing intially loaded entries in the database. attributes are optional here
  • ldifs - a list of strings representing file paths to the LDIF files to load on start, like ..., 'ldifs': ['path/to/file1.ldif', 'path/to/file2.ldif'], ...

The format of entry in entries as well as base is following:

{'dn': 'o=some,dc=example,dc=com', # DN identifying the entry
 'objectclass': ['top', 'organization'], # objectclass may be either a
                                         # string in case of a single
                                         # class or a list of classes
 'attributes': {        # attributes are optional
    'o': 'some'         # every attribute may have either a single value
                        # or multiple values in a list like
                        # 'ou': ['Value1', 'Value2', ...]
 }
}
