Calling DirectoryManager.findPrincipals() returns max of 10 results


Level 1

I've got a basic service written in Java that leverages the LiveCycle API, and I'm calling to load a set of users from the system. However, this always seems to return a maximum of 10 results. Is there an optional parameter to override the maximum?

An excerpt of the implementation is below:


public class MyServiceImpl implements MyService


   @Resource( name="applicationDomain" )

   private String applicationDomain;


   private DirectoryManager directoryManager;


   pubilc List<User> getUsers(  )


      PrincipalSearchFilter psf = new PrincipalSearchFilter(  );

      psf.setPrincipalType( Principal.PRINCIPALTYPE_USER );

      psf.setRetrieveOnlyActive(  );

      psf.setSpecificDomainName( applicationDomain );

      List<User> results;

      results = directoryManager.findPrincipals( psf );

      return results;

Hi Tim,

You would need to set the resultsMax size on the filter. Each such filter extends a GenericSearchFilter which has this attribute defined
