I'm using phpLDAPadmin currently, but I'm wondering if there is any native utility do the similar thing?

  • @NathanBasanese yes it is. Mar 4, 2022 at 5:20
  • Based on four answers bellow, I do not see a satisfactory answer. I will stay in ldapvi , a command-line to easily edit the files, and ldap2dot.py, to generate dot files to compile graphs.

Apache Directory Studio is is an excellent LDAP/LDIF browser and editor. It is under active development and is extensible.

  • I agree. It's the most complete and reliable I've ever tried. May 25, 2011 at 12:02

It hasn't been updated in several centuries, but we still use LBE, LDAP Browser/Editor. It's Java based, and we use on both Linux and Windows (from the same install base actually) so I don't know if you consider that 'native'.


  • Also works on a Mac.

  • I struggle to get this working with TLS, but for all purposes, LBE is my LDAP goto tool.

I have always used below LDAP browsers.

JXplorer (http://jxplorer.org/index.html) is very handy & good when you want to manage cn=config database format.

phpLDAPadmin Web based LDAP browser - add, edit, delete or view records. Written in PHP - mature and actively developed. GNU license. Very powerful.


One can also try to use Luma
