I found this tutorial

I tryind this : (&(&(objectCategory=Person)(sAMAccountName=*))(!(OU=IT)))

Hi Julian,

Thanks for your question!

I'm afraid there is no option for you to exclude an OU from a subtree LDAP search. You can confirm this using the same query you mentioned, creating a test LDAP query on the Saved Queries located on the Active Directory Users and Computers. 

You should see all the users in the results.

That said, I would recommend you filter the users who are members of a certain group, like Jira Users.

The query should look like the following: 

(&(objectCategory=Person)(sAMAccountName=*)(memberOf:1.2.840.113556.1.4.1941:=cn=Jira Users,ou=users,dc=company,dc=com))

Hoping it helps, please let me know your thoughts.
