How do i create a control

See original GitHub issue

I’m trying to reset PWD in AD while honoring password history. I’m using this article as reference. AD requires that I pass a control (1.2.840.113556.1.4.2239 or 1.2.840.113556.1.4.2066) with the modification for a reset (replace not delete/add - no original pwd).

My first question is do I use a regular Control or ServerSideSortingRequestControl? I’m guessing the later, either way when I try to create the control i get various errors.

The latest error is ‘Missing required key: attributeType’

//var pwdhint = new ldap.Control({
var pwdhint = new ldap.ServerSideSortingRequestControl({
    type: "1.2.840.113556.1.4.2239",
    criticality: false,
    value: value
    new ldap.Change({
        operation: 'replace',
        modification: {
            unicodePwd: encodePassword(newPassword)
    }), pwdhint, function(result, error){
        if (error) (console.log(error));

And my second question is how do I create the “value” parameter. No matter how I create I get a TypeError. This says it should be a byte array and the previous article I referenced said the value should be “0x1”

If I pass the control without specifying the value it appears that the control is ignored. As PWD history is ignored and the ModifyResponse.controls is empty

Would appreciate some help

It is disappointing that neither the docs nor the issue tracker appear to have a working example of a Control.
