v3.61 released

Changelog 2018-02-04 v3.61

- If you opened the LDAP browser, closed it, disconnected and connected to
another LDAP server the browser would still be connected to the previous LDAP
server making it impossible to browse unless you restarted the application.
v3.65 released

Changelog 2018-09-02 v3.65

- Batch Operations -> LDIF Export was not using paging when exporting from AD
resulting in only 1000 entries being exported.

- LDAP browser was not using paging when connected to AD resulting in not being
able to list containers containing more than 1000 objects.

* eDirectory GUID is now displayed in upper case because IDM uses upper case
GUID's as the association value.

* Tested with IDM 4.7, eDirectory 9.1.

* Tested with Java 10 and Java 11.

- Send to IDM from XDS file didn't always honor the selected file encoding
resulting in corrupted values being sent in some cases.

* Testing a connection in the Profile Manager or connecting to a profile in the
main window is now done in a background thread and a progress dialog is
displayed which can be closed to cancel the connection attempt in those cases
when the server is unavailable. This means that the UI doesn't lock up when
connecting to unavailable servers. There are still other parts where the
connection attempt is not multithreaded yet.

* More searches than before are multithreaded and will display a progress
dialog if they take more than 2 seconds to complete.

* LDIF importer now logs a summary in the log file:
- Number of successful entries imported
- Number of failed entries
- Number and type of error
v3.66 released

Changelog 2018-09-21 v3.66

The app now detects an invalid filter and shows an error message.

- The Beta -> Create Entry function didn't detect the RDN in some cases.
v3.67 released

Changelog 2018-10-02 v3.67

rule that has no NAME attribute.

Here are the changes:

Changelog 2019-10-19 v3.70 BETA 2

click on "Show IDM Drivers" it will only display drivers that are enabled on
the server you are connected to.

that are either Running and Stopped (All), only Running or only Stopped. This
is applied when you click on the "Show IDM Drivers" button.

Changelog 2019-09-10 v3.70 BETA 1

+ Implemented certificate validation when connecting over a TLS channel and
"Validate certificate" is enabled on the connection profile. A keystore is
created in the .console2 directory, "c2_truststore.jks", the password is
console2 if you want to manipulate it outside of C2. When you trust a new
certificate it's added to the keystore.

- Disabled "Copy to clipboard" on non-texteditor fields.

* Added "Trim?" checkbox to the filter generator, removes trailing spaces from
attribute values.

* You can now select multiple drivers after clicking "Show IDM Drivers" and
change the startup mode for all of them.

New beta version available.

Changelog 2020-11-01 v3.80 BETA 1

- Refactored connection handling to a large degree. Improved disconnect cleanup.

+ Object counter job - count the number of objects in the directory service.
Found under Extra -> Count objects in LDAP

* Change the way the IDM JVM stats are retrieved to work with large responses.

* Display the IDM JVM stats in a text viewer window with syntax highlighting.

* Added "Save as" button to the Text Viewer window.

+ Certificate viewer/editor, open userCertificate attributes, load from file,
save to file.

+ nrf- and entitlement attributes report generator. Found under IDM -> Misc ->
Count nrf-values. Useful for finding objects with large amount of values in
attributes due to the RBPM model.

+ Collect eDirectory statistics from the cn=monitor object in newer eDirectory
versions. Found under IDM -> Misc -> Gather eDirectory stats.
Logs a number of key performance metrics every X seconds by polling the cn=monitor
object, it has many of the metrics you can usually see in iMonitor.

+ Obsolete Entitlement Check. Found under IDM -> Misc -> Obsolete Entitlement Check.
Checks if the value in the DirXML-EntitlementRef on the User exists in the
nrfAssignedResources attribute and in the nrfEntitlementRef on a nrfResource object.
Currently in restricted preview.

+ Direct sync mode in Association Manager. Instead of modifying the association
state value like iManager to trigger a sync, queues the sync event directly
by putting it in the driver cache. Currently in restricted preview.

* Added a column to the LDAP entry viewer that shows the number of values each
attribute has. Useful to quickly see the number of members a group has for

- Fixed a bug in the connection tester.
Changelog 2020-12-28 v3.80 BETA 2

+ Added "Delete entry" to right click menu on the "Found objects" list on the
main screen. You can only delete one entry at a time.

- Fixed a bug in Association Mangager when resyncing objects using "Direct" mode.

* Split "Direct" mode to two modes, "Direct-Queue" and "Direct-Inject".
"Direct-Queue" adds sync events to the driver cache while "Direct-Inject" pushes
the sync events past the cache directly into the subscriber event transform.

* Improved "Obsolete Entitlement Check" to work with large number of resources
and entitlements. Example, in 1h7m 105K resources, 95K users, 3.8M entitlement
values and 22M nrfAssingedResources values were processed.

It now respects the settings on the connection profile.

+ Added a "Compare CSV" feature found under IDM -> Misc.
It's made for comparing a column from a CSV file with a column in another CSV file.
The output is what values are missing from each column.
Useful when comparing a list of usernames in the IDM system with a list of
usernames in the connected system. You can choose the file encoding, preview
the files, the CSV separator character and the index of the column in each file.
The index is counted from the left to the right as it usually is with CSV files.
0 is the leftmost column and so on.
The result is written to the directory where the source files are located.

"Validate certificate" checkbox being checked.
