Perform a quick search for user accounts

You can use the -find_users parameter to perform a quick search for user accounts in an MDM domain. The -find_users parameter is optimized to display a large number of search results, and may have less impact on the BlackBerry Enterprise Server than using the -find parameter.

  1. On the computer that hosts the BlackBerry Enterprise Server User Administration Tool, on the taskbar, click Start > All Programs > BlackBerry Enterprise Server Resource Kit > BlackBerry Enterprise Server User Administration Tool Client > BlackBerry Enterprise Server User Administration Tool.
  2. Type besuseradminclient <credentials> -find_users.
  3. Perform any of the following actions:
    • To search for user accounts by display name, type -display_name <display_name> .
    • To search for user accounts by login name, type -login_name <login_name> .
    • To search for user accounts by email address, type -email_address <email_address> .
    • To search for user accounts by group name, type -group_name <group_name> .
    • To search for user accounts by the BlackBerry Enterprise Server instance that they are associated with, type -dispatcher <server_name> .
  4. To specify a maximum limit for the number of results, type -max_results <max_number> .
  5. If you want to display more detailed results, type -extended.

Example: Performing a quick search for user accounts by display name

besuseradminclient -username admin -password password -find_users -display_name "Julie Palmer"

besuseradminclient -username admin -password password -find_users -login_name JPalmer

besuseradminclient -username admin -password password -find_users -email_address jpalmer@test.net -max_results 10

besuseradminclient -username admin -password password -find_users -group_name Administrators -extended
