Feature #310926, revision 1
Title: LDAP Filter

Buildservice: Unconfirmed
Requester: Important

Requested by: Gregor Dschung (chkpnt)
Partner organization:

Two of the configuration variables for LDAP are LDAP_SEARCH_BASE and
LDAP_SEARCH_ATTR. It would be nice to have an additional LDAP_SEARCH_FILTER for
use cases that can't be expressed by using only LDAP_SEARCH_BASE.

Use Case:
Imangine the following: dn: cn=John Doe,ou=People,ou=Branch A,o=Large
Corp,c=COM cn: John Doe personalTitle: M.Sc. department: IT ...

There it is possible to use LDAP_SEARCH_BASE="ou=Branch A,o=Large Corp,c=COM"
and LDAP_SEARCH_ATTR="cn". But what, if only people from the IT should have
access to OBS? Or only guys with a Master's degree? Or both?

Therefore, something like
LDAP_SEARCH_FILTER="personalTitle=M.Sc.,department=IT" would be nice.

Business case (Partner benefit): I'm missing that feature. Essential for large companies.
