Using Additional LDAP filter to retrieve specific users

You can create a user directory connector that will retrieve only specific users when synchronizing with user directories. To achieve this you use the property Additional LDAP filter when creating a new GenericLDAP or Active Directory user directory connector.


Enter a query in the Additional LDAP filter text field found in the Advanced property group. For example, you might want to import:

  • all users named John: (&(objectClass=user)(name=John*))
  • a specific user: (&(objectClass=user)(sAMAccountName=userid))
  • more than one specific users: (&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(|(sAMAccountName=userid)(sAMAccountName=userid)))
