This is documentation about a configuration directive, which can be placed within Movable Type’s core configuration file, mt-config.cgi, to customize the behavior of the system.

When Movable Type synchronizes user and group profile data, it conducts a search against the LDAP directory and extracts the values associated with specific group profile attributes and maps them into the Movable Type schema. To perform that search, Movable Type forms a query in the form of a URL to the LDAP directory. The value of this configuration directive contains the base URL for that query. The URL will be completed by Movable Type by appending the end of this URL the name of the group being searched for.
