Versione 4.4-1

Questa versione contiene (in Inglese):

Our first point release of UCS 4.4 includes all minor improvements and bugfixes of the Errata updates released over the past months, but it also brings some exciting new features.

Univention Directory Manager (UDM): More performance, improved functionality and a new REST API as beta version

There are significant performance improvements for managing the contents of the directory service via UDM, especially for application scenarios with complex structures. There have also been further minor improvements in DNS management, where the search for IP addresses is now enabled in further modules, as well as in the use of standard containers of domain controller objects.

A brand new feature is the REST API for UDM, which considerably facilitates the integration of UDM with other applications. This REST API has been released as beta version for the time being. After further tests and improvements we plan to release a stable version in autumn.

Adaptation of app logins via CSS Stylesheets – easier configurability of the portal – new app recommendation system

The UCS Portal is the central point through which users have easy access to all IT applications in their environment. Administrators already had various options at their disposal to configure and design the portal page with their own look and feel. New configuration options have been added for custom stylesheets (CSS), which allows UCS administrators to provide the central user login and self services with an own individual layout. Self services allow users not only to reset their password, but also to adjust the information in their user account themselves.

Also new for the UCS Portal are enhancements in user guidance. Administrators can now configure whether web-based IT applications linked in the portal should be opened in the same tab or in a new tab. In addition, for the login at the portal or at single sign-on capable applications, e.g. the UMC, made-available there, they can configure the session timeout of SAML much easier.

Windows Profile, AD Connector Scenarios and Samba 4 Connector Configuration

UCS 4.4-1 also brings a whole range of improvements to the area of Windows Services. Thus there are changes in the integration of Samba when dealing with server-side Windows profiles, in that the respective paths are now hidden in the file share, so that users no longer damage their profile unintentionally.

We have simplified the authentication between workstations of the AD domain and UCS file services on member servers when using UCS file servers in an AD Connector environment, which had not been possible as usual after the update to Samba 4.10. These improvements are also available for UCS 4.3.

Also new: In the extended configuration of the connector between UCS LDAP and Samba 4 via Univention Configuration Registry there is now the option to exclude subtrees of the LDAP directory from synchronization. The previously required adaptation of the configuration files is no longer necessary.
