Is there any way around Splunk waiting for a cmd in order to do an inputlookup in an ldapsearch?

Hi, i want to list members of a group and then list their groups in active directory,

for that i have a lookup with all users, i request and format my list so it is nice for the ldap search :

|inputlookup Domaine_LOL | search memberOf=*team_1* | table sAMAccountName | format "|" "(" "(" ")" " " ")"

then i make my ldapsearch, the "static" version is as follow :

| ldapsearch search="(&(objectClass=user)(|(cn=*user1*)(cn=*user2*)(cn=*user3*))(!(objectClass=computer)))" 

    |ldapfetch dn=memberOf attrs="cn,description"
    |table sAMAccountName,cn,description
    |rename sAMAccountName as nom
      | sort + nom

so the automated version should be

| ldapsearch search="(&(objectClass=user)([ |inputlookup Domaine_LOL | search memberOf=*team_1* | table sAMAccountName | format "|" "(" "(" ")" " " ")"])(!(objectClass=computer)))" 

    |ldapfetch dn=memberOf attrs="cn,description"
    |table sAMAccountName,cn,description
    |rename sAMAccountName as nom
      | sort + nom

the problem is i get this error :

Error in 'SearchParser': Missing a search command before '"'. Error at position '131' of search query '|ldapsearch search="(&(objectClass=user)(|[ |inpu...{snipped} {errorcontext = format "|" "(" "(" "}'.

like splunk is waiting a search cmd in order to do an inputlook inside and ldapsearch ..

any way around ?

Thanks.

You need to escape the double-quotes with backslash ( \) like this:

| ldapsearch search="(&(objectClass=user)([ |inputlookup Domaine_LOL | search memberOf=*team_1* | table sAMAccountName | format \"|\" \"(\" \"(\" \")\" \" \" \")\"])(!(objectClass=computer)))"

This solution does not work (  "error_message=invalid filter") because it produces the column value is enclosed with double quotes and therefore the result of the subquery ends up like this (with my example):

| ldapsearch search="(&(objectClass=group)([| rest splunk_server=local /services/admin/SAML-groups | rename title as cn | table cn | uniq| format \"\|\" \"(\" \"(\" \")\" \"\" \"\"]))"
| ldapsearch search="(&(objectClass=group)(| ( cn="app-splunk-a-d" ) ( cn="app-splunk-b-d" ))"

 

This cannot work as long as one can configure the column enclosings.

Hi, you were right the escape did things better, so request is now interprated but i still get a "bad filter" Error.

i finally found i was wrong on the way i do my request, i found a much easyer way to achieve what i need with ldapfetch !

i ldapsearch the users members of the group i need and then lists their group memberships, ldapfetch then go get cn and description of groups, muuuch better 🙂

| ldapsearch domain="default" search="(&(objectClass=user)(cn=*))" attrs="sAMAccountName,mail,memberOf"
| search memberOf="CN=Team_1,OU=Groupes,OU=...,OU=....,OU=Users,DC=domain,DC=com" 
|mvexpand memberOf |ldapfetch dn=memberOf attrs="cn,description"
| table sAMAccountName mail cn description
| rename sAMAccountName  AS user
| rename cn AS group_name

thanks for your help 🙂
