FirstWare DynamicGroup 2015.2 Update – Improved group-specific queries
FirstWare DynamicGroup 2015.2 includes functionality updates in the DynamicGroup Console and DynamicGroup Service.
Most changes affect the Query Builder in the DynamicGroup Console for group-specific queries.
New in DynamicGroup 2015.2
When changing the group name of an existing group, DynamicGroup changed the attribute SamAccountName. With this 2015.2 update, the cn attribute (common name) will be adjusted as well. To avoid compatibility problems, special characters in the SamAccountName (like /\’) are now automatically removed when saving dynamic groups.
LDAP filters can contain special characters. For the correct handling of special characters, a chapter has been added to the documentation.
DynamicGroup allows QueryConditions to be configured in the builder, and at the same time in the LDAP filter field. In order to ensure that the correct values are accepted, the user now receives a messages. You can choose to convert the Query Conditions to a new LDAP filter or to keep the one from the filter box below.
Dynamic groups that generate members from include and exclude lists only, have not been calculated by the service every time so far. Since Version 2015.2 the service considers these groups as well. This function is useful when group nesting should be reduced.
The “flat group” option allows you to add groups as member of a dynamic group, but considering the groups’ users only. The group itself does not become a member of the dynamic group. In version 2015.2 it is now possible to add users of other normal and dynamic groups using include lists – without having any other query filters set.
DynamicGroup is a proven product which has been used for many years now by a steadily growing customer base.
FirstWare DynamicGroup is a software application to automate group memberships in Active Directory. Group members are dynamically assigned to a group based on AD attributes (like department), OUs, combined LDAP filters and more.
