Multi edit

This tool allows you to modify a large list of LDAP entries in batch mode. You can add new attributes/object classes, remove attributes and set attributes to a specific value.

At the beginning, you need to specify where the entries are stored that should be changed. You can select an account suffix, the tree suffix or enter your own DN by selecting "Other".

Next, enter an additional LDAP filter to limit the entries that should be changed. E.g. use "(objectclass=inetOrgPerson)" to filter for users. You may also enter e.g. "(!(objectClass=passwordSelfReset))" to match all accounts that do not yet have the password self reset feature.


Now, it is time to define the changes that should be done. The following operations are possible:

Please note that all actions are run as separate LDAP commands. You cannot add an object class and a required attribute at the same time.

Dry run

You should always start with a dry run. It will not do any changes to your LDAP directory but print out all modifications that will be done. You will also be able to download the changes in LDIF format to use with ldapmodify. This is useful if you want to adjust some actions manually.

Apply changes

This will run the actions against your LDAP directory. You will see which accounts are edited in the progress area and also if any errors occured.
