idautoID

Value

1Only necessary if enabling wildcard searches.

Please ensure the idautoID attribute is equality-indexed as all modules search quite often on those values.

Any item defined in the GAL as “Searchable” should be indexed or made not-searchable.

The general guidelines for Profiles would be to make sure all attributes used in delegations (both Source Filter and Target Filter) are indexed appropriately for the way they're used in the filters.

For Roles, ensure that the attributes idautoGroupOwners and idautoGroupCoOwners are equality-indexed and the idautoGroupLastSynced is presence-indexed.

Other attributes used in the dynamic membership/exclusion filters should also be indexed based on how they're used in the filters.

How to create indexes

For Microsoft Active Directory implementations please refer to the Microsoft documentation on how to create indexes.
