Group Search- How?

November 30Hits:0
Hello Gurus,
Our UME is tied to Active Directory with read-only option. I am presently trying to clean up groups which involves identifying groups stored in Portal Database (not in AD) and then possibly deleting them.
If I search for groups, the results show groups from both the Portal Database and AD. How can I get a list of groups stored only in the Portal Database?
Any pointers are appreciated.


With EP7, it's easy - the user admin tool allows you to select this.
EP6 is a bit messier. You need to use the role assignment tool in the portal and select your group there. Now when you use the Edit button, you get the full name of the group, which will show if it's LDAP or not.
Or, you could write some code which does a group search and returns the unique name. This is similar, but was designed for users, not groups...
