Functions for limiting the number of users

The structure area contains an object "Search" within the user administration. This is a functional object, i. e. a click on the object does not display this object in the object window, it calls a function. In this case, an entry field appears next to the object. Via this entry field, it is possible to limit the total number of all users to those beginning with the indicated character string. The asterisk serves as wildcard character for any number of letters.

Example: We assume that the system knows the following users: Martin Mustermann, Martina Mustermann, Peter Mustermann, webserver. A search for "martin" would reduce the total number to the following users: Martin Mustermann, Martina Mustermann. The name of both users begins with the string "martin".

Another example with the same users: A search for "*mu" results in the following: Martin Mustermann, Martina Mustermann, Peter Mustermann. The names of these users contain the string "mu", the user webserver does not.
