How do I exclude LDAP groups from Crowd

I am using and ldap connector to Active Directory. I want all the users from my base DN but not the groups. I want to create the groups in Crowd and manage group membership in Crowd.

I have the "Manage groups locally" option checked on the Connector tab of the Ldap directory config page. But I want to see none of the groups from AD.  Is this possible?

Yes, it is.

Go to the Group configuration tab of your Active Directory connector in Crowd's console. Then, change the Group object filter into an LDAP filter that won't return any group:

(&(objectCategory=Group)(cn=thisgroupsdoesnotexist))
