LDAP connections to server support different types of controls. Eg. there is a edirectroy control for supporting simple passwords via LDAP:
'2.16.840.1.1137126.96.36.199.5': ('2.16.840.1.1137188.8.131.52.5', OID_CONTROL, 'Simple password', 'NOVELL'),
Other controls are available for getting a server side sorted list back from LDAP searches, using persistent searches and so on.
Please add a option for LDAP connections to set a list of active controls for the connection.
We have a IDM environment where set synchronize simple passwords, but we are not able to create a Validator test for that because we cannot enable the LDAP control for that connection.
A ldif file could look like this to enable the control and set the universal password as a hash value:
