:py:mod:`ldap.controls` High-level access to LDAPv3 extended controls

.. py:module:: ldap.controls
   :synopsis: High-level access to LDAPv3 extended controls.
.. moduleauthor:: python-ldap project (see https://www.python-ldap.org/)


Variables

.. py:data:: KNOWN_RESPONSE_CONTROLS

   Dictionary mapping the OIDs of known response controls to the accompanying
   :py:class:`ResponseControl` classes. This is used
   by :py:func:`DecodeControlTuples` to automatically decode control values.
   Calling application can also register their custom :py:class:`ResponseControl`
   classes in this dictionary possibly overriding pre-registered classes.


Classes

This module defines the following classes:

.. autoclass:: ldap.controls.RequestControl
   :members:

.. autoclass:: ldap.controls.ResponseControl
   :members:

.. autoclass:: ldap.controls.LDAPControl
   :members:


Functions

This module defines the following functions:

.. autofunction:: ldap.controls.RequestControlTuples

.. autofunction:: ldap.controls.DecodeControlTuples


Sub-modules

Various sub-modules implement specific LDAPv3 extended controls. The classes therein are derived from the base-classes :py:class:`ldap.controls.RequestControl`, :py:class:`ldap.controls.ResponseControl` or :py:class:`ldap.controls.LDAPControl`.

Some of them require :py:mod:`pyasn1` and :py:mod:`pyasn1_modules` to be installed:

Usually the names of the method arguments and the class attributes match the ASN.1 identifiers used in the specification. So looking at the referenced RFC or Internet-Draft is very helpful to understand the API.
