    Active Directory Security Trimming Stage

    An Active Directory Security Trimming query pipeline stage retrieves an Active Directory user’s security identifiers to build a security filter. This restricts the documents in the query result to only those documents for which a user has access permissions. Security trimming is commonly used in business to authenticate between administrative users and normal users, or to limit the site access of website users according to a login/password.

    This stage supports asynchronous processing.

    Example Stage Setup

    Active Directory Security Trimming query stage setup:


    curl -u USERNAME:PASSWORD -X POST -H 'Content-type: application/json' -d '{"id":"ADSecurity", "type": "active-directory-security-trimming", "server":"ldap://hostname:port","bindName":"","bindPassword":"login1"}' http://FUSION_HOST:FUSION_PORT/api/query-stages/instances


      "type" : "active-directory-security-trimming",
      "id" : "ADSecurity",
      "server" : "ldap://hostname:port",
      "bindName" : "",
      "bindPassword" : "login1",
      "enableCache" : true,
      "cacheSize" : 1000,
      "expirationTime" : 3600,
      "skip" : false,
      "label" : "active-directory-security-trimming",
      "type" : "active-directory-security-trimming"


    When entering configuration values in the UI, use unescaped characters, such as \t for the tab character. When entering configuration values in the API, use escaped characters, such as \\t for the tab character.

    Retrieve AD user's security identifiers and build security filter

    skip - boolean

    Set to true to skip this stage.

    Default: false

    label - string

    A unique label for this stage.

    <= 255 characters

    condition - string

    Define a conditional script that must result in true or false. This can be used to determine if the stage should process or not.

    asyncConfig - Asynchronous Execution Config

    enabled - boolean

    Run the expensive data loading or processing part of this stage in a separate thread allowing the pipeline to continue executing. The results of this asynchronous execution can be merged into the pipeline request using a downstream "Merge Async Results" stage.

    Default: false

    asyncId - string

    A unique value to use as reference in downstream "Merge Async Results" stages.

    overrideUserIdentityHandling - boolean

    Default handling first attempts to take the user identity from a 'fusion-user-id' http-header, which is the logged-in user ID from the Fusion proxy service. If that value is empty, a 'username' query parameter is tried instead. When this DataSource property is enabled, the specified source and key properties are used explicitly, without any fallback behavior.

    Default: false

    userIdentitySource - string

    Specify whether the value comes from an http header or query parameter.

    Default: query_param

    Allowed values: query_paramheader

    userIdentityKey - string

    e.g. username, userID, etc.

    Default: username

    datasources - array[string]

    A list of Fusion datasources to which security-trimming should be restricted, allowing content from other datasources to pass through un-filtered; if empty, all matching content is subject to filtering.

    server - stringrequired

    E.g. ldap://hostname:port

    bindName - stringrequired

    username in userPrincipalName format (e.g.

    bindPassword - stringrequired

    filterAttribute - string

    Active Directory attribute to use as the security-trimming filter criterion

    Allowed values: objectSidsAMAccountNameuserPrincipalName

    enableCache - boolean

    Default: true

    cacheSize - integer

    Default: 1000

    expirationTime - integer

    (in seconds)

    Default: 3600

    referral - string

    The method for processing referrals encountered by the service provider

    Allowed values: followignorethrow
