LDAP User Object Filter configuration

Hello,

I work with crowd 2.2.7 and I setup a LDAP directory (that works fine).

But when I tried to apply an User Object Filter by using the following character : "!"

I got an the error message below:

No results were found from your search. org.springframework.ldap.InvalidSearchFilterException: Unbalanced parenthesis; nested exception is javax.naming.directory.InvalidSearchFilterException: Unbalanced parenthesis;

All the others operator & | ... works fine

I would like to know if there is a known issue about this specific character "!" ?

Thank you for your help.

Regards,

Alexandre

Simple error : instead of doing (!myAttribute=myValue) we should do (!(myAttribute=myValue)).

First of all thank you for your reply but I correctly wrote my query as (!myAttribute=myValue).

So your query looks like

(!givenName=FrancescoZappa) - correct
and not
!(givenName=FrancescoZappa) - incorrect

It is most common mistake. Not an expert though (a poor developer), that's what I remember ...
