We are using gnarwl for vacation notification and I would like gnarwl to only reply if the current time is in the vacationStart vacationEnd window.

Here is the queryfilter to do that using the following information:

<br />
$recepient           - receiver of the message<br />
$time                - current time in seconds since the epoch<br />
vacationActive       - attribute for start time of the vacation in seconds since the epoch<br />
vacationEnd          - attribute for end time of the vacation in seconds since the epoch<br />
mail<br />
mailAlternateAddress - attribute for email address of an account<br />


queryfilter (&(|(mail=$recepient@*)(mailAlternateAddress=$recepient@*))(vacationActive=TRUE)(|(!(vacationStart=*))(&(vacationStart<=$time)(vacationEnd>=$time))))

Broken down this does the following:


There's a few things going on here.

Check that all these conditions are met (that is the outer and (&).

  • Match either mail or mailAternateAddress on the recepient address
  • Make sure vacationActive is TRUE
  • Check that either vacationStart is not present or
    • vacationStart is less than the current time and
    • vacationEnd is greater than the current time.
