Enhance IDPWLDAP AUTHINFO functionality to filter on disabled\enabled user accounts

The current configuration options for IDPWLDAP do not allow filtering of enabled\disabled user accounts i.e. matching user records are returned regardless of whether the user is disabled or enabled within LDAP. This means, that when a user is disabled within LDAP that state is not recognised by the MQ LDAP function. The only way to ensure MQ can not find the user in LDAP is to delete the user record, and it is often considered best practice to keep records in LDAP but disable them rather than delete them. If the functionality to include disabled users could be controlled by a property in the IDPWLDAP object or an environment variable this would provide more granular control of the environment and allow greater customisation for MQ users.

    While this is an interestnig idea, it's not something we would plan to implement. Just as MQ does not directly do any checks on OS users for whether they are "active" or not. Changing the LDAP password would be one way to ensure users cannot successfully authenticate.
