A Forum reader recently asked:
“I need to know how many users I have per container, so I found the DSI Flags to get information about one object. Is an SDK available to make a Java program that can be invoked via scripting to get that info?”
And here’s the reply from Akos Szechy …
No ideas about Java, but if you can do an LDAP query (which should work from Java) you can ask for the operational attributes with a “+” sign. You will find a subordinate count there, like this:
ldapsearch -h host -p 389 -x -D cn=admin,o=services -w password -s base -b o=services + # services dn: o=services modifiersName: cn=ADMIN,o=SERVICES GUID:: QGDWZHKo2gGAqa4BAgAAAA== usedBy: #0# revision: 20 subschemaSubentry: cn=schema federationBoundary: t=CPL-ASZECHY-LINUXTREE structuralObjectClass: Organization createTimestamp: 20060228155343Z modifyTimestamp: 20061208114232Z subordinateCount: 36 entryFlags: 4 localEntryID: 32781
