Directory Service Browser

The Directory Service Browser serves to find directory service objects. Microsoft Active Directory, Microsoft Azure Active Directory and Novell eDirectory are supported.

Search term

The search term is part of the name, login name or display name of an item. If the search is started, the directory service is searched for entries that start with the specified search term.

Search several terms simultaneously

The Directory Service Browser allows you to search for several terms simultaneously. The terms have to be separated by a semicolon ; . The results are displayed in the results list.


Unmark the category symbol, if you do not want listings of that category in your search result.

Entry point

The domains or organization units in which the search takes place, is shown below the search term. The entry points can be changed by using the Entry points link.

The structure of your directory service is displayed in the tree shown. Within the domain you will find organization units. Select an element within the tree to define where the search should start from.
