Using User Directory with exception group access

Could we use User Directories settings for login "User Schema Settings" -> "User Object Filter" with one big group and excent another small group?

Are "User Object Filter" accept "!=" operator for group or another one?

You can use memberOf in the User Object Filter similar to the following (example from here)

(&(objectCategory=Person)(sAMAccountName=*)(memberOf=CN=jira-users,OU=Distribution Groups,DC=domain,DC=corp))

An example of != would be something like

(&(objectCategory=Person)(!(cn=user)))
