Detachable Profile Tabs

Each profile that represents an open connection to a LDAP profile is now associated with a tab in the main window. You can also click and drag the tab out of the tab bar to a separate window. This not only simplifies the navigation but also makes it easier to compare LDAP entries from different profiles.

Detachable Profile Tabs

Generalized Time Editor

A new generalized time editor allows you to view and edit single- and multi-valued attributes defined with the Generalized Time syntax. The well-known examples of such attributes are whenChanged and whenCreated in Active Directory and createTimeStamp in OpenLDAP.

Filter Scripts

In addition to the ability of searching directories using LDAP filters, you can now benefit from new scripting support, which allows you to control the results of LDAP requests before they are presented in the window. This makes it possible to perform complex incremental searches based on the intermediate results. One example could be a script that collects all descendant members of a group by finding the direct members of the group, then by searching for the members of the groups found in the first search and so on until all the descendant members are found. The scripting enables you to implement other automation tasks like emailing or writing data to file or a database table.

Userbooster Light v5.2

LDAP filter validator

  • LDAP filters are now validated so when you specify an incorrect filter, a warning tooltip indicates the error and shows you the position. In some cases (e.g. odd parentheses), the error can be corrected automatically: you only need to confirm this by clicking on the tooltip.
  • In addition to object classes and attribute types, you can now browse attribute syntaxes, matching rules and matching rule uses in the Shema window.
  • When an attribute’s syntax is a distinguished name, you can select one or more values for the attribute by using a new Select Entries dialog. For example, the manager attribute of a user, which exists both in Active Directory and OpenLDAP. The dialog allows you to perform a search by attributes with or without wildcards.

When you export objects to a file, Userbooster Light on Windows now allows you to export all attributes or only those visible in the main grid, which makes it more flexible when it comes to analyzing data.

Export all or selected attributes

Userbooster for iPhone and iPad

Userbooster is now available for iOS users, those who own iPhone and iPad. You can see the screenshots on our website (iPhone and iPad) or purchase the application directly in iStore.

Common configuration file for all Userbooster editions

All three editions have the same configuration file so you can synchronize the Userbooster settings between your devices via http/https or email.

Userbooster Light v.4.5

Redesigned Object Properties grid

The object property grid displays all or filtered attributes for one or more objects. The content representation of an attribute is defined by the schema associated with the current profile.

The read-only attributes are grayed out and you can even hide them by unchecking Show Read-Only attributes in the Attribute filter menu.

A tooltip provides on-the-fly information about the attribute.

New and updated attribute editors

Each attribute in the schema has its own type. The updated collection of in-place editors in Userbooster allows you to view and manage attributes of any type in a convenient way. The mostly-used types have their own specialized editors. For other attributes, you can use a binary editor. All the editors support placeholders.

Creation of new objects

With the new version, you can create an object supported by the schema directly or through a template. In the latter case, you create a template for particular type (specified by a defined number of object classes) and then you have a dialog for creating objects of that type.

Task Scheduler

You can now automate creation of LDAP reports (including sending reports by email) with a Task Scheduler.

Export changes instantly

From now on, two modes of saving changes (to a server or a file) are supported: Instant and on demand. The former, which is default, means that a change to an attribute is immediately applied to the destination. The later means that you can change a number of attributes and then save all these changes at once by clicking the Save modified items button.

Changes preview

When the instant save is off, you make changes to more than one attribute and to more than one object. When you save the changes, you can now get the detailed information on those objects and attributes. You can also postpone changes to particular object and/or attributes until later.

Quick Filter control

When you need apply an object filter to limit the objects (returned from the server) to a particular object class, you can now do that easier. The most wanted filters are now available in the Object Filter drop-down menu. Alternatively you can specify an object filter in the Profile Settings.

New scenarios for placeholders

You can now use placeholders in the following scenarios:

  1. Saving attribute values to the current server, to other server or to a file. The placeholder is replaced with the value.
  2. Importing data from a file. If an attribute contain a placeholder (which you can do in advance), you can save the attribute as it is described in item 1.

XML View with template support

The new XML View allows you to see and print out the properties of objects in a customized way.

If you do not like the current theme or layout you can customize it by adding an xsl file.

Streamlined navigation

The Import tab has been removed from the Navigation Pane: You can now import and view files in the Directory Architect view. The Directory Architect is improved as follows:

  • It now contains a plain sorted list of profiles.
  • Added a new type of profiles, the file provider, which allows you to work with files in a similar manner as with other directory profiles.
  • Novel is not supported as a separate server type.

Customizable main grid

The main grid contains a list of objects with their attributes shown in the grid columns. You can configure yourself which attributes should be shown in the main grid or even create several views and switch between them when you need it.

  • Die Darstellung und Funktion des lokalen LDAP-Schema wurde optimiert und bietet nun alle Möglichkeiten für die effiziente Verwaltung der herstellerspezifischen Implementierungen.
  • Ein neuer Report-Assistent stellt beliebige Dateninhalte in anspruchsvollen Statistiken zusammen. Reportvorlagen bieten die Möglichkeit, das eigene Corporate Identity in Layout und Gestaltung zu berücksichtigen.
  • Die Anzahl wiederkehrender Aktionen für die automatische Ausführung mittels Startparameter wurde erweitert und ebenfalls über Assistenten zugänglich gemacht.
  • Beim Löschen von Benutzerobjekten werden nun auch bei Bedarf die Postfachkonten sowie DFS-Verknüpfungen bzw. die Profil und Heimlaufwerke gelöscht.
  • Die grafische Benutzeroberfläche wurde vollständig überarbeitet und den aktuellen Anforderungen angepasst.
