FieldDescription

LDAP / Solar Archive Realm

Specifies whether to query the LDAP directory or the Local Solar Archive User database. Typically, it would only need to search the LDAP service.

Search For

Username being searched. You can use the * wildcard where needed, typically at the end of the search name. The system will try to find matches based on 3 LDAP fields:

  • Primary Email Address (typically the ‘mail’ field)

  • Secondary Email Address (typically the ‘aliasAddresses’ field)

  • Display Name (typically the ‘displayName’ field)

Allowed Link To

Delegated link of the user account. You can use the * wildcard where needed, typically at the end of the search name. The system will try to find matches based on 3 LDAP fields: - If you leave the Search For field blank, then this field will not be used. - Enter a linked email address or just * in this field, to list accounts with matching links.

Additional Address

Additional email address, other than the primary address, of the user account. Any LDAP user account can be extended in Solar Archive with extra email addresses. You can use this field instead of the Search For to locate any user accounts that have additional addresses.

Search Filter

Search filter to be applied. The available options are Only user account types, Only group account types, and Active User Accounts Only.
