userFilter & searchFilter have different meanings?

Hi all,

I didn't understand very vell the difference between the 2 LDAP search
filters found on "**":

1) *idp.authn.LDAP.userFilter*

(Shib. Doc says "*LDAP search filter*, used by anonSearchAuthenticator,
bindSearchAuthenticator" on

2) *idp.attribute.resolver.LDAP.searchFilter*

(Shib. Doc says "The <QueryTemplate> element provides the template from
which the *LDAP search filter* will be built." on

Can someone help me, please? I am a bit confused...

Forgive me if this is a trivial question, please.

Thank you so much for your patience.

Best Regards!
