Active Directory : Filter Problem: Search for 'cn' but use 'displayName' for group


following ist not working in active directory sync:

group filter: (&(objectClass=group)(cn=ABC_*)) => I want to search only for ABC* groups

goup name: displayName => I want to use the displayName (not cn) for the group name

... i get exception.

com.atlassian.crowd.exception.OperationFailedException: java.util.concurrent.ExecutionException: com.atlassian.crowd.exception.OperationFailedException: org.springframework.ldap.UncategorizedLdapException: Unable to find the groupname of the principal.

 If i user cn as group name => it works.


Is there a solution for my problem?
