This is a bash script to bulk create LDAP users and add them to a new group. It has been verified via LDAP with eDirectory, but is only intended for testing and troubleshooting purposes. Sometimes you just need a ton of users and would rather not go through the trouble of adding them all manually.

Description:

  • Connects to an LDAP server via :389 with specified credentials

  • Creates #ofUsers in a base container: (user1, user2, etc.)

  • Prompts if users should be added to a group

  • Generates two ldifs: add, modify (if group is requested)

  • Uses ldapadd command for creating users

  • Uses ldapmodify command for modifying users (group)

  • For group: adds user to group member with equivalentToMe,
    adds to user's groupMembership attribute.
