Yes, you granted permission to search by userPassword.

This implies none of the entries' userPassword value is "test".
You are asserting userPassword is "test", not password is "test".
That is, if userPassword is some value derived from "test"
(such as when hashed passwords are in use), then to get a match
you'd have to assert this derived value.
