dim a as CSIdentityAuthorityMBS = CSIdentityAuthorityMBS.localIdentityAuthority
An identity authority is a logical repository of user and group information, such the users and groups database on a local system or on a directory server.
The local authority contains all users and groups defined on the local system. The managed authority contains all users and groups defined in directory servers to which the system is bound (LDAP, ActiveDirectory, etc.). The Default authority is a union of the local and managed authorities and is used to locate user/group info from both sources in one query.
Use one of the class factory methods to return an CSIdentityAuthority object, which can be used to search for an identity with an CSIdentityQuery object.
This is an abstract class. You can't create an instance, but you can get one from various plugin functions.
