  1.  open the Connect Directory and then the AD data source.
  2.  navigate to the "Filter" item
  3.  uncheck "Users" and "Contacts" and check "Restricted by the following filter condition".
  4.  add the filter and adjust the components:

Then paste the result as a filter in the data source configuration.


Save the settings. This will recreate the index.

Filter contacts from the connector:

  3. select the "Result of a search query" item
  4. specify the path to search from and enter the filter:



5. Save the settings and run the connector again.

(Note: If you have edited an existing connector, the connector must run through three times, as only then will users that no longer exist be deleted).
