    Hi,
     
    Working with version 8.6.2ES24.21900-24 amongst others.

    We are using the Unity Connection CUPI API to import users from the LDAP sync list.  We have found the GET operation with resource uri "import/users/ldap?query=(alias is <username>)" to be case sensitive.  I could not find any information, in the WADL or otherwise, on how to change the query to make it case insensitive.

    The case sensitivity would make it very inefficient for an application using the API to find a user if the application is not presented with the username in the correct case, which is typically not a requirement in the LDAP environment.

    In contrast, we have found the query operation from the resource uri "users/?query=(alias is <username>)" is case insentitive.  Also, the GUI page under Users -> Import Users search is case insensitive, even if the filter is set to "Is Exactly".

    I would appreciate assistance with modifying this query or suggestions of a workaround.

    Thanks,
