Limiting IM users in LDAP

By default when you point to LDAP I see all the user accounts regardless of anything, is there a way to make it so I can only see users if I have enabled a group they are on? I don’t want to see an “all users” type list…

That would be a user filter based on a LDAP group. Enter something like this into the system property ldap.searchfilter: (&(objectClass=organizationalPerson)(memberOf=cn=WebISteam,ou=ChatGroups,ou=acc ounts,dc=domain,dc=com))

Thanks Todd. Does that imply that only those users will show up when they are a member of that group? and then I can use my other groups to further control where they are seen in the IM client? Or would I need multiple filters?

Or by being in a specific group they are removed from the generic listing of users?

yes, only members of that group will show in openfire. All the groups will still show in the openfire admin, and can be shared accordingly.
