Starting with Adaxes 2018.1 it is possible to specify a top level node for Adaxes Web interface to limit the objects available in it. For details, have a look at the following tutorial: https://www.adaxes.com/tutorials_WebInterfaceCustomization_ControlObjectsDisplayedInWebInterface.htm.
Currently, the feature of limiting search in the Web Interface is not available. We have such a feature in our TODO list, it will be available in one of our future releases.
For now, you can use two workarounds for this task:
Limit what users can see with the help of Security Roles
You can use Security Roles to hide certain parts of your AD domain(s) from users. However, you should keep in mind that when using such method, you will hide the objects from users everywhere in Adaxes environment, and not only in the 'Peopele Search' Web Interface. For information on how to accomplish the task, see the following tutorial: http://www.adaxes.com/tutorials_Delegat ... mUsers.htm.
Use the View Object Home Page Action as the Search function
As you've already mentioned, you can also search for users in Adaxes Home Page Actions. For your task, you can use the View Object Home Page Action that can be used for searching for and viewing objects and that does not perform any additional actions. For information on how to set up such a task, see View Object: http://www.adaxes.com/tutorials_WebInte ... s.htm#view. To accomplish your task:
- On the 1st step of the section, select the type of objects your users need to search for (for example, User or Contact).
- On the 3rd step, set a specific OU or container, where the objects should be located, or specify a LDAP filter that the objects should meet to be returned by the Home Page Action.
