       ldaptemplates.conf  - configuration file for LDAP display template rou-


       The ldaptemplates.conf file contains information used by the LDAP  dis-
       play routines.

       Blank  lines  and  lines  that  start  with  a hash character ('#') are
       treated as comments and ignored. Non-comment lines contain one or  more
       tokens.  Tokens  are separated by white space, and double quotes can be
       used to include white space inside a token.

       The first non-commment line  specifies  the  version  of  the  template
       information  and  must contain the token Version followed by an integer
       version number. For example,

       Version 1

       The current version is 1, so the above example is  always  the  correct
       first line.

       The  remainder  of  the file consists of one or more display templates.
       The first two lines of the display template each contain a single token
       that  specifies  singular  and plural names for the template in a user-
       friendly format. For example,


       specifies appropriate names for a template designed to  display  person

       The next line specifies the name of the icon or similar element that is
       associated with this template. For example,

       "person icon"

       The next line is a blank-separated list of template options. "" can  be
       used  if  no options are desired. Available options are: addable (it is
       appropriate to allow entries of this type to be added), modrdn  (it  is
       appropriate  to offer the modify rdn operation), altview (this template
       is an alternate view of another template). For example,

       "addable" "modrdn"

       The next portion of the template is a list of X.500 object classes that
       is  used  to determine whether the template should be used to display a
       given entry. The object class  information  consists  of  one  or  more
       lines,  followed  by  a terminating line that contains the single token
       END.  Each line contains one or more object class names, all  of  which
       must be present in a directory entry. Multiple lines can be used to as-
       sociate more than one set of object classes with a given template.  For


       means  that  the  template  is  appropriate  for display of emailPerson
       entries or orgPerson entries.

       The next line after the object class list is the name of the  attribute
       to  authenticate  as  to  make  changes (use "" if it is appropriate to
       authenticate as the entry itself). For example,


       The next line is the default attribute to use when naming a new  entry,
       for example,


       The  next  line is the distinguished name of the default location under
       which new entries are created. For example,

       "o=XYZ, c=US"

       The next section is a list of rules used to assign  default  values  to
       new  entries.  The  list should be terminated with a line that contains
       the single token END. Each line in this  section  should  either  begin
       with  the  token  constant and be followed by the name of the attribute
       and a constant value to assign, or the line should begin with  addersdn
       followed  by the name of an attribute whose value will be the DN of the
       person who has authenticated to add the entry. For example,

       constant  associatedDomain    XYZ.us
       addersdn  seeAlso

       The last portion of the template is a list of items to display. It con-
       sists  of  one  or more lines, followed by a terminating line that con-
       tains the single token END. Each line is  must  begin  with  the  token
       samerow or the token item

       It  is  assumed that each item appears on a row by itself unless it was
       preceded by a samerow line (in which case it should be displayed on the
       same  line  as  the  previous item, if possible). Lines that begin with
       samerow should not have any other tokens on them.

       Lines that begin with item must have at  least  three  more  tokens  on
       them:  an  item  type, a label, and an attribute name. Any extra tokens
       are taken as extra arguments.

       The item type token must be one of the following strings:

       cis             case-ignore string attributes

       mls             multiline string attributes

       mail            RFC-822 conformant mail address attributes

       dn              distinguished name pointer attributes

       bool            Boolean attributes

       jpeg            JPEG photo attributes

       jpegbtn         a button that will  retrieve  and  show  a  JPEG  photo

       fax             FAX T.4 format image attributes

       faxbtn          a  button  that  will  retrieve  and  show  a FAX photo

       audiobtn        audio attributes

       time            UTC time attributes

       date            UTC time attributes where only the date portion  should
                       be shown

       url             labeled Uniform Resource Locator attributes

       searchact       define  an  action  that will do a directory search for
                       other entries

       linkact         define an action which is a  link  to  another  display

       protected       for  an  encrypted  attribute, with values displayed as

       An example of an item line for  the  drink  attribute  (displayed  with
       label "Work Phone"):

       item cis  "Work Phone"   telephoneNumber

       play of people entries.
