Subject RE: Query for user's groups
Date Tue, 29 Jan 2013 19:46:46 GMT
I guess I wasn't clear. Say user with DN, uid=abc,ou=People,dc=sample,dc=com, belongs to two
groups with DNs, cn=group1,ou=Roles,dc=sample,dc=com and cn=group2,ou=Groups,dc=sample,dc=com.
Both groups have objectClass, groupOfUniqueNames. Knowing the group's RDN, "Roles" and the
user's DN, I would like to write a filter that returns group1 (which is under "Roles", but
not group2 (which is under "Groups").
