6.2 Controlling Object Visibility

An object’s visibility determines which post office databases the object’s information is distributed to. A post office’s users can only see an object’s information in the Address Book if the object’s information has been distributed to its post office.

Visibility applies to the following objects: user, external user, external entity, resource, external resource, distribution list, eDirectory group, eDirectory organizational role, and nickname.

You can choose from the following visibility levels:
