Hi there!

To reduce project dependency on 3rd party paid services the StackStorm TSC has decided to move the Q/A from this forum to Github Discussions. This will make user experience better integrated with the native Github flow, as well as the questions closer to the community where they can provide answers.

EWC ldap enterprise settings: how to add a search_filter for sAMAccountName

using the EWC ldap setup, where do I place the

"search_filter": "(&(sAMAccountName={username})(!(userAccountControl:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=2)))"
to allow uid to essentially now search of sAMAccountName?

backend = ldap
backend_kwargs = {"bind_dn": "[email protected]", "bind_password": "xxxx", "base_ou": "OU=Users,OU=XXXX,DC=fnetworks,DC=com", "group_dns": ["OU=Users,OU=XXX,DC=fnetworks,DC=com", "OU=Users,OU=XXXX,DC=fnetworks,DC=com"], "scope": "subtree", "host": "", "port": xxx, "debug":true, "group_dns_check": "or", **"search_filter": "(&(sAMAccountName={username})(!(userAccountControl:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=2)))"** }

You can review the list of configurable options for the LDAP backend at So if I’m reading your question correctly, you want to use the sAMAccountName instead of the uid. You can override id_attr (defaulted to uid) in the backend_kwargs.

Perfect. I’ll give it a try.
