Use the Find User page to identify a user (directory) client for the Check Policy or Test Filtering tool.
The page opens with the User option selected. Expand the Directory Entries folder to browse the directory, or click Search. The search feature is available only if you are using an LDAP-based directory service.
To search the directory to find a user:
1.
2.
Use the Search for list to specify how to perform the search:
*
Select Entries containing search string to find all directory entries that contain the search term you entered.
*
Select Exact search string only to find only the directory entry that precisely matches the search term.
3.
Expand the Directory Entries tree and browse to identify a search context.
You must click a folder (DC, OU, or CN) in the tree to specify the context. This populates the field below the tree.
4.
Click Search. Entries matching your search term are listed under Search Results.
5.
Click a user name to select a user, or click Search Again to enter a new search term or context.
To return to browsing the directory, click Cancel Search.

If you are using the Test Filtering tool, make sure that a URL or IP address appears in the URL field before you click Go.
To identify a computer client instead of a user, click IP address.
