I'm using Sharepoint 2016. How can I search the diabled AD accounts in the people picker control? Thanks.

This behaviour is "by design". So theres only one workaround:

  • create a custom claims provider for peoplepicker

Refer: Plan for custom claims providers for People Picker in SharePoint 2013

  • Thank you for your information. But is there any other easy way to do that? Commented Nov 5, 2017 at 6:37
  • Any other way, like what? Only using OOTB or Designer or Coding
