Key features in ADManager Plus Build 6000:
Automation: Set up 'end-to-end' automation of any AD task using the 'automation' feature. Further, with 'automation policy', you can also set up its time-based sequential follow-up tasks, as per your organization's requirement. With the 'implement business workflow' option, you can also set up a controlled workflow-based automation in which the task will not progress unless the administrator/the authorized technician gives the go ahead, at each stage of the workflow.
Single User Modification with/without templates: It is now possible to modify any existing single user account, with/without using any 'modification template'. Using these templates, you can allow the help desk technicians to view/modify only those fields that they are allowed to, as per your requirement.
Single User Modification through Rules: Specify the fields that should be automatically populated, whenever a user account is modified by a help desk technician and these rules will not be visible at all to the help desk technician.
GPO Management: With this feature, it is now possible to accurately specify and manage the GPOs that should be applied to any target location. For any Domain/OU/Site, administrators can now Enable/Disable GPOs completely or only the User/Computer configuration settings, Add/Remove GPOs, Enforce/Unenforce GPOs, and also Block/Unblock GPO inheritance to Domains/OUs, exactly as required. Plus, view all the GPOs available in all the configured domains along with their status and the locations that they are linked to, from one central location.
The following enhancements have been made to the 'Workflow' feature:
Quick-link to 'Create Request': Requesters can now create requests for all the management actions that they have permissions for, from just one centralized location.
Add Requesters Directly: Now, turn any AD user into a 'requester', even if the user is not a help desk technician. Just select the required user(s), assign the appropriate roles domain and save the settings, to turn any normal AD user(s) into a 'requesters'.
Requester permissions to Group/OU: Assign 'requester' permissions to an entire Group/OU, for any AD task, as required. This automatically turns all the existing members and any user who becomes a member of this group/OU into 'requesters'.
Assigning Rules: With these rules, specify the technician(s) to whom the request being created has to be assigned and also set the required priority for the request, based on either the type of action or the requester who creates the request, as needed. Also, specify the technicians/users to be notified of the request status and progress, at each stage of the workflow.
Requester Roles: Administrators can create custom roles to specify the task or the set of tasks for which a 'requester' can create requests. These roles can be used to provide the necessary request creation permissions to any new requester. While creating a new requester, by just assigning a specific 'requester role' to any user, administrators can specify all the tasks for which this specific requester can create requests, in one single step.
The 'IMAP4 setting not reflecting when modified through single user modification feature' has been fixed.
'streetAddress' can now store multiline values also
Customers now have the option of providing database password in encrypted format, if required.
'Recently Modified Users' report can now retrieve more than 1000 objects.
Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 has been added to the options in the 'OS Based Report'.
Approval notification email will be sent to executors, even if they are not specified in the workflow.
