This configuration parameter specifies the number of seconds before the results of an Active Directory search expire.

Search expiration is handled separately from object expiration because a search result may include objects that have been deleted or be missing objects that have been added that meet the search criteria.

You can set this configuration parameter by manually adding it to the centrifydc.conf configuration file and specifying the maximum number of seconds for a search result to be kept in the local cache.

If you are manually setting this parameter, the parameter value must be a positive integer. The following example sets the cache expiration time for search to 1800 seconds (30 minutes): 1800

Note:   The default cache expiration time for all objects types is defined with the adclient.cache.expires parameter. If you explicitly set the parameter, its value overrides the default value for cached objects.
