Active Directory - retrieving users under different subtrees

Hi everyone,

today I'm looking for your help regarding Active Directory.

In my scenario I have a complex forest, where on one of the trees (that can be imagined as the main - overall - node) has been created a group for Qlik Sense users that can access the system, while the users are actually on different trees/subtrees.

Currently I'm directing to the Global Catalog (LDAP://...:3268) in order to see all the trees.


Forest (with Global Catalog i'm pointing right here)
  +---- Tree #1
  | |
  | +----- Group with users defined in Tree #2 and in the same Tree #1
  +---- Tree #2

  | |

  | +----- users...

Right now in Qlik Sense I'm able to extract all the users that are under the Tree #1, but not under the Tree #2.

Using LDAPAdmin/Softerra LDAP I've managed to understand that my filter is basically correct, but lacks of one important information: the search scope.

With both softwares I've seen that if I set the search scope to "base", the filter retrieves the same users as Qlik Sense (so the ones under Tree #1), while if I set "sub-trees" they manage to retrieve also the other users.

So, what I'm asking you today is this: is there a way to search over subtrees with Qlik Sense?

I was looking for a particular syntax or a option to do so

Hey there,

So no one had this issue?

I was also thinking about using directly a LDAP url with filters and scope, but I've not been able to make it work, yet
