In our old server environment we have had an search query with this format : (&(sAMAccountName=*)) which has been workin but when we uppgrade to a new server environment the search query above gives an Exception in our loga like this: javax.naming.directory.InvalidSearchFilterException: Unbalanced parenthesis; remaining name
Would be nice to receice some suggestions how to correct the LDAP search query
Hi Thomas, in old version of JIRA and Confluence you had to escape the ampersand symbol and the exclamation mark symbol before adding to your XML file (see here), but in the current versions you can simply use (sAMAccountName=*), which should return the same result.
Hi Thomas, yes that's correct. The equivalent to your old filter in newer versions of JIRA is just (sAMAccountName=*)
Just one additional information, since you're using the attribute sAMAccountName, I assume you're connecting JIRA with AD, is that right?
If so, it may be better use the user filter as (&(objectCategory=Person)(sAMAccountName=*)) otherwise the synchronization may pull other LDAP objects that are not users to your JIRA application.
I hope it helps.
