LDAP Sync on multiplatform CMOD: Enable wild card with user filter in ars.cfg.

Currently there is no wild card allowed under ARS_LDAP_USER_FILTER parameter in ars.cfg file. This feature is present in ARS_LDAP_GROUP_FILTER parameter. Because of this, the users and groups are able to independently sync to CMOD after arslsync is run. But the mapping of groups and users is lost , it means users that are part of a group in LDAP are removed in CMOD. This seems to be due to there is no wild card feature in user filter. Below is an example:-

1. After arslsync is run, below groups and users are individually added to CMOD but as you can notice the mapping is removed.

2. Below is the sample from ars.cfg file. As can notice, wild card is not allowed in user filter. If that is enabled, then above problem may not occur.
