Top New Features

Name

Description

v2.2?

Batch Membership Updates

Provide the ability to assign/unassign multiple groups to/from a subject on the same screen. In other words, manage memberships from the subject info page rather than from the group page. This would allow the ability to more easily add a single subject to multiple groups. Similarly, allow for a batch import of groups to which a subject should be assigned.

Y

Attribute Handling at Objects

Provide the ability to manage attributes for groups, memberships, etc. on the same page that handles the object. Currently, attributes are managed in a separate view.

Y

Multi-language Support

Language could be set at install or (better) the user could select a different language than the default one.

?

Roles & Permissions

Improve the roles and permissions workflow.

?

Group Relationships

Provide a visual display of groups impacting the membership of a given group. The display would illustrate subgroups and composite factors, perhaps expanded by levels.

?

Action Timer

When viewing the details of a group, display when changes to that group will next be provisioned to downstream systems, or updated from an external source.

?

Clone Groups

Provide the ability to clone an existing group, including all attributes and values, renaming attributes in the process so that they are specific to the newly-cloned group.

Y

Requirement

Manage Groups

Members

When adding members, you have the option to "Browse folders and groups for members." The list of folders/groups is determined by the last filter which was applied (e.g. "My Memberships" or "Manage Groups"). See UI Favorites and Preferences

Manage Groups

Edit

Not clear what the difference is between "Privileges assigned to everyone" (on the group edit screen) and the list of permissions on the "Change privileges on members" screen. I got to the latter by going to manage members -> clicking "member by 2 paths" -> clicking "Change privileges" -> clicking "which has privilege :ADMIN :UPDATE"

Filter

Browse

Difficult to understand "where you are" in the site (whether breadcrumb, nav, etc.).

Search

Search

The search box at the bottom of each screen searches only against the groups included in that view. For example, if you are on the "My Memberships" screen, the search only searches against groups in which you are a member. Given the position of the search box, this is not obvious.

Manage Members

Edit

In order to edit privileges for an already-existing member of a group, you have to first view the group, then click "Add Members", and then check off the members you want to edit and then click "Assign Privileges." It's a lot of clicks and it's not obvious that you have to go to "Add Members."

Manage Members

Edit

Editing privileges in the Lite UI is also a bit tricky. You have to:

  • Click on the Lite UI menu
  • Select "Groups and roles"
  • Search for the group you want to edit
  • Click "Edit group/role"
  • Click the 'Privileges" button

  • No labels
