Tried to find specifics on how to use wildcards in queries against Edirectory,
or rather: how to make the engine NOT interpret * as a wildcard when searching
for matching CN values (they have imported users from SAP-UM including "SAP*"
and a search for it now returns all users starting with "SAP" instead). Seems
not documented, all I found was a quote from Father Ramon:

> IDM doesn't provide any way to do a presence query, though some datasources

support a
> wildcard query in some contexts. For string syntax attributes you can use *

as a wildcard

Did anyone come across more details somewhere? Did you already write an article
about this, Geoff????
