Profiler v5 development

2017-06-10 16:36:15

Work has now officially begun on v5. This will be a complete re-write of the software. The goal of this re-write is flexibility and auto-discovery. Our first step towards auto-discovery has begun with some proof of concept code that can actively read the directory schema.

In LDAP terms the schema can be thought of as the data definition part of a database, each attribute has a specific syntax and rules on how it is handled. In the current version, we used a manually created table to list the common attributes. This proved in-flexible if you had a custom attribute or a different attribute from our list. Now with this new code we can automatically detect any schema changes you have made and adjust accordingly. No configuration change needed.

More postings will be made as a features are developed.
Happy Holidays!
