Issue/Introduction

I have created a group filter in EEM.  But I am still seeing every user in the domain in the "Manage Identities" tab.  I don't recall that being the behavior.

Environment

Release : 12

Component : WORKLOAD CONTROL CENTER

Resolution

On the EEM -> Configure -> User Store -> LDAP Attribute Mapping -> Mapping name -> <your custom map>
The top section "User Lookup" has a "User Search Filter"
That is where you would want to include filters to restrict what users are seen.

The lower part of the window "Group Attribute Mapping" has a 
"Group Search Filter" that is where you would filter the groups, not users, seen by EEM.


Example of a filter for the user's restricting them to be ONLY users that are members of my specific Administrators's group.
(&(objectClass=user)(!(objectClass=computer))(memberOf=CN=Administrators,CN=Builtin,DC=bedrock123,DC=net))

And here is an example of a Group filter restricting the groups seen by EEM to only ones that start with oak, Plat or Adm:

(&(objectClass=group)(|(sAMAccountName=oak*)(sAMAccountName=Plat*)(sAMAccountName=Adm*)))

NOTE - You should get an ldif of a user so you can confirm EXACTLY how their attributes are defined so you know how to set up the filters.
