Name of dynamic member attribute

Name of the attribute that defines the filter for dynamic group members in LDAP. For example, memberURL is the name of a commonly used dynamic member attribute.

If both member and dynamic member attributes are specified for the same group type, this group type is a hybrid group with both static and dynamic members.

A dynamic group defines its members differently than a static group. Instead of listing the members individually, the dynamic group defines its members using an LDAP search. The filter for the search is defined in a dynamic member attribute. For example, the dynamic group uses the structural objectclass groupOfURLs, or auxiliary objectclass ibm-dynamicGroup, and the attribute memberURL, to define the search using a simplified LDAP URL syntax:

ldap: ///<base DN of search>??<scope of search>?<searchfilter>

The following is an example of the LDAP URL that defines all entries that are under o=Acme with the objectclass=person:

ldap: ///o=Acme,c=US??sub?objectclass=person

Dynamic object class

Object class of the group that contains this dynamic member attribute, for example, groupOfURLs. If this property is not defined, the dynamic member attribute applies to all group object classes.
