SHA-2 Hash Functions For userPassword
More secure SHA-2 cryptographic hash functions (SHA-256, SHA-384, SHA-512) for setting the password in userPassword.
You can now save links to most often-used LDAP entries so that you can later reach any of them in one step.
Visualization of jpegPhoto as an Image
Attribute jpegPhoto is visualized as an image (Data/Report View and Details pane).
Visualization of Audio as a Link
Attribute audio attribute is visualized as a link (the Data/Report View and Details pane), which you can click to play.
Drag-and-Drop of Attributes for Customizing the View
You can now drag an attribute from the property grid and drop it in the Data/Report View, which allows to customize the View faster and more convenient.
Locate Entry in the Directory Tree
A Show in Directory Tree in the context menu over an item in the Data View, with which you can locate the entry in the tree.
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.
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.
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.
- 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.
