Issue:

Prior to r12.52SP1CR5, there was a provision to specify any text to filter out the desired Member Group and Member Organizations. in Administrative UI

For e.g 

If there are following Member Groups :

 

You could use search filter as : "Manager" to filter the DN : CN= Manager,CN=Users,DC=ad,DC=lab

 

However, starting with r12.52SP1CR5, this feature is removed.

Now, the only filter that works is : CN=Manager

 

Anything else does not work:

 

 

Environment:
Policy Server : 12.52 SP1 CR5 and above.Admin UI : 12.52 Sp1 CR5 and above
Cause:

This is working as per the new design. Now , the search filter is expected to be in the format CN=XXX (LDAP syntax).

The base for the search filter is picked up from the User Directory configuration (LDAP Search root)

 

Resolution:

There is no workaround/resolution for this issue.

Additional Information:

An enhancement request is created to bring back this feature :
