Filtering Directory Service Items

Filters let you specify the kinds of directory service items that are included in the resultant groups for a particular directory browser in Enterprise Manager.

You can select filters for new or existing browsers. Specify filters in the directory browser's Attributes dialog, on the DS Filter tab.

When you run reports for the directory service, types of objects are included or excluded according to your selections.

To select filters for directory service browsers:

  1. Right-click the configuration and Open to Manage.

  2. Expand Directories.  

  3. Create a new browser. Or for an existing browser, click the name to select, then right-click and choose Properties.

  4. On the Properties dialog, click the DS Filter tab.

  5. Make your selections for the types of objects listed.
