The command line option that specifies that this task is to work with groups.
Specifies that the DirectoryAdmin command should perform a search.
Specifies the group ID pattern to search for. The pattern must contain either the full group name or, if the full group name is not used, a part of the group name with a prepended or appended asterisk (*). For example, you might want to set -idp group* to return all groups that start with group, such as "groupname" or "grouplogin".
Limits the number of groups that are returned as part of the search.
