Exclude AD accounts from People Results

  Asked By: Katlyn    Date: Jul 21    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 4048

I am trying to exclude an AD group from ANY search for People Results.
Has anyone ran into this problem/have a solution? It's an AD group that
have an account for internet usage, but aren't part of the staff. When
I try to search for joe user, some of these people are showing up and I
was wondering if there was a way for me to either remove them from the
user import or from the results.

Depending on how your AD directory is organized, you might be able to
filter using the "peoplepicker-searchadcustomquery" application property.


for more info on the various properties you can use to customize the
people picker.

Isn't there a variable that I can put in under SSP>User Profiles and
Properties>View import  Connections>Edit Properties of SSP>under the
User Filter field. I thought that this would be a valid place to put
a command/variable to exclude  this AD group(s) from being imported.

Does that make sense?

I know how to *include them*, maybe you can take this and figure
out how not to? I didn't think it imported them by default, thus the
reason we tracked down the below originally.

To exclude  the group  simply add a "!" in front of the group element. For

External Users,dc=mydomain,dc=com))

Would exclude users who were a member of the group Contractors in the
External Users OU of mydomain.com.
