Description Daniel Tröder univentionstaff 2018-12-16 08:52:00 CET
Created attachment 9779 [details]
simple listener module

When a listener module created with the new listener API is installed and the u-d-l is restarted the status shown with "univention-directory-listener-ctrl status" is always "0".

The listener did however successfully initialize the module, as can be seen in the logfile.

The status file in /var/lib/univention-directory-listener/handlers/$NAME does contain a "3", but "univention-directory-listener-ctrl status" still shows a "0".

Attached is a simple listener module to reproduce this.
Comment 1 Philipp Hahn univentionstaff 2018-12-16 12:17:05 CET
<http://docs.software-univention.de/developer-reference-4.3.html#listener:handler> specified that "name" must be declared as the top-level symbol in the *Python* module.
This is parsed by the *shell* script "management/univention-directory-listener/src/listener-ctrl", which uses the regular expression

Using anything else breaks the status output.
Comment 2 Daniel Tröder univentionstaff 2018-12-18 11:29:34 CET
I created a script that prints the configuration of both new and old API listener modules.

Because the old way is must faster (no Python import required), it is only used as a fall back.

$ apt install pcre2-utils

$ pcre2grep -M -o3 "ListenerModuleHandler\).*(\n|.)*class Configuration.*(\n|.)*name\s*=\s*[\"'](.+)[\"']" <LISTENERMODULE>

Tested with 
* univention-radius.py
* /usr/share/doc/univention-directory-listener/examples/listener_module_template.py
