Query Active Directory by Department

This issue has been solved. See solution.

I've seen how to query AD to get a list of people using their managers Id (https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/obtain-direct-reports-active-directory ).   I would like to get a list of people by department rather than by manager. 

Is there a way to query AD by department name or any other value that doesn't required the Distinguished Name?

Use the Get User List component and use the additional attributes section to specify an attribute of department with a value set to the name of the department.   You should get a variable array containing all of the users in that department.

Thank you Justin.  Switching to the Get User List component did the trick.
