                    LdapUserSearchSessionFactorySettings.SEARCH_BASE_DN) + "] must be specified");

        logger.info("Realm [{}] is in user-search mode - base_dn=[{}]; search filter=[{}]";
                config.name(); userSearchBaseDn; searchFilter);
    }

    static boolean hasUserSearchSettings(RealmConfig config) {
        return config.settings().getByPrefix("user_search.").isEmpty() == false;
