I would like to limit the groups which Openfire uses from the active directory to those which are in a specific OU.
So as to not duplicate all of the past conversations, jeffreyvsmith posted something that seems like it will do what I’m looking for in this thread…
Specifically, it’s the one where he says this at the end of the post…
“So now I have it so that users are only those who are a member of my openfire security group,
and the groups are only those that are also members of that openfire security group.”
However, I’m not sure I understand the syntax of his cofiguration.
Basically, I know how to edit ‘System Properties’.
I’ve edited my ldap.baseDN to have the widest view of the campus active directory (because my users and groups are not all within the same OU).
I’ve also edited my ldap.searchFilter to only get users from a certain group within my department’s OU (so that I don’t have 100,000 user accounts in my Openfire setup).
However, I also want to have only my department’s groups to show up in the groups section of Openfire.
I think that what jeffreyvsmith posted in that thread will do this for me, but I’m just not sure I understand.
Anyone out there willing to do a little hand-holding for a few minutes?
