Start page of the modern, Ajax technology-based Univention Management Console (UMC), which unites the system administration, administration of domains and virtualization management in one web interface. It offers a convenient single point of administration and a variety of interfaces for the integration of additional functions.
It is possible here, for example, to create and edit individual structures with containers and different organisational units (OUs) with specific settings as well. The focus is on the administration of objects such as users, computers, groups or networks. The different features of objects are arranged in thematically coordinated groups of settings, which can be dynamically shown and hidden. In this way, even complex objects with many features and settings can be displayed clearly.
Displays and search functions can be preconfigured to suit personal requirements: users can thus preset the most often used search parameters. An important feature of the UMC is the customisable, structured user prompting. This makes it possible for work flows often repeated with the UMC, for example navigation in search results, to be performed more quickly.
The different attributes for all objects are separated into categories and distributed across tabs. This keeps the web front-end clear and the individual options can be located quickly using the corresponding names on the tabs. All attributes are easy to find, even for objects with a considerable number of setting possibilities, such as user objects.
Group administration is used to create, search, edit and delete groups. New and existing group members can be located easily with strong filter functions and added or deleted. Additionally, the assignment of users to groups is also possible directly on the user objects. UCS supports nested groups (groups in groups) and the assignment of e-mail addresses to groups too.
The Univention App Center allows the easy installation of software components for UCS. The applications are provided by third-party manufacturers as well as by Univention.
Policy objects are part of a central, strong concept in UCS, which can be used to facilitate the administration considerably particularly in larger environments, but also structure it very clearly in smaller installations. One example for this is the Univention Directory Manager View policy, which is used to configure the available functions and views of UMC module Navigation even for individual users or groups of users.
The UMC module Univention Virtual Machine Manager (UVMM) is used for the central administration of physical servers and virtual machines. Among other functions, UVMM can be used to create, start, stop, migrate and delete virtual systems quickly and simply. Virtualisation servers in a cluster can also be operated centrally controlled with UVMM.
