Searching in LDAP users is currently is done w.r.t the Base DN defined for an organization. But such search willonly return users belonging to the specific Organization Unit (OU). LDAP administrators may want to creategroup of users belonging to different Organization Units. For example, this grouping may be used for controllingaccess. When groups are created user node Dns are stored in "member" attribute within the group node. So faruser data service does not allow search and DN resolution based on attribute(s) value such as "member".With Redirection Search, DN resolution (on entire LDAP) based on specific attribute value for a particular nodeis possible.


  1. Users belonging to group(s).

  2. User with multiple managers, or Managers with multiple users reporting across an OU.
