The script should then build something like this "(|(departmentNumber=x)(departmentNumber=y))"  and then do another search based on this filter build script, this worked OK in IDPv2 but not in V3.

I would have to assume V2 had a bug. It using a value like that without escaping it would have been a mistake, so that probably got fixed. Just guessing.

You would perhaps need a more creative use of Velocity inside the LDAP search template that implements some of the logic in that language and not in the script.
