About LDAP Queries
GADS uses the LDAP query language to collect data from your directory server. Before you can synchronize data from your directory server, you will need to prepare LDAP queries.
The LDAP query language is a flexible standard that supports complex and powerful logical queries, and is discussed in this section. Google Apps Directory Sync strictly adheres to RFC 2254, which defines international standards on LDAP filters.
To build your LDAP queries, you will need to know your LDAP structure. The best way to collect directory server information is an LDAP browser. For more information, see Step One: Install LDAP Browser.
Most of the search rules in GADS use LDAP queries for information. The only exception to this are Exception Rules, which use substring or regular expressions based on the text of email addresses, not LDAP fields.
