Qlik Sense : Example of a LDAP filter to sync users in a group

How to create a filter that only sync users in a group.


  1. Open the Microsoft Active Directory Users and Computers module (see

    Qlik Sense on Windows: Configuring and testing LDAP filters for User Directory Connector )

    Find the group in the memberOf (could be a different name in LDAP flavors other than AD).

  2. Copy the group

  3. Add this filter to your LDAP/AD connector

    (&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(memberof=CN=DL-Product Management Team,OU=DL,OU=Activate Groups,DC=qliktech,DC=com))

    Exchange the italic text for your group

  4. Note that if the used rootAdmin account is accidentally excluded from the LDAP filter results, the account may be come deactivated in Qlik Sense. In order to prevent this see How to avoid the RootAdmin(s) from becoming inactive.
  5. Save user directory connector and sync.
