FirstWare DynamicGroup 2015.2 updatesfunctionality in DynamicGroup Console and DynamicGroup Service fora better group calculation.
Most changed affect Query Builder in DynamicGroup Console forgroup-specific LDAP filters.
New in DynamicGroup 2015.2
When changing the group name of an existing group, DynamicGroupchanged the attribute SamAccountName. With this update cnattribute (common name) will be adjusted as well. To avoidcompatibility problems, special characters in the SamAccountName(like /\’) are now automatically removed when saving dynamicgroups.
LDAP filters can contain special characters. For the correcthandling of special characters, a chapter has been added to thedocumentation.
DynamicGroup allows QueryConditions to be configured in thebuilder, and at the same time in the LDAP filter field. In order toensure that the correct values are accepted, the user now receivesa messages. You can choose to convert the Query Conditions toa new LDAP filter or to keep the one from the filter box below.
Dynamic groups, that generate members from include and excludelists only, have not been calculated by the service every time sofar. Since Version 2015.2 the service considers these groups aswell. This function is useful when group nesting should bereduced.
The “flat group” option allows you to add a groups as member ofa dynamic group, but considering the groups usersonly. The group itself does not become a member of thedynamic group. In version 2015.2 it is now possible to add users ofother normal and dynamic groups using include lists – withouthaving any other query filters set.
