VVX PHONE - Corporate Directory - LDAP Search Request customisation

Hello everyone,


I've recently set up a fresh VVX Phones installation with corporate Directory. (


I'm using polycom 5.5.1 UC Software version and openLDAP 2.4 on Debian 9.


Everything is working fine but i'd like to know if it's possible to add a star before the search string ?


Example :

Original ldap request made by the phone :

Filter: (&(&(sn>=0)(sn<=zz))(|(sn=Au*)(givenName=Au*)))

(here i'm using dir.corp.attribute.x.addstar="1" in order to search everything which begin with "Au" in the surname field or givenName field)


Is there an option on the phone side or the server side to prepend de search string with a star like this :

Filter: (&(&(sn>=0)(sn<=zz))(|(sn=*Au*)(givenName=*Au*)))


Best regards,
