There are significant performance improvements for managing the contents of the directory service via UDM, especially for application scenarios with complex structures. 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.

The enhancements of version 4.4 focus on a number of new features, higher security and more comfort. With the application “Admin Diary”, UCS now supports administrators in making administrative activities traceable. For more security, password policies can be defined more strictly and flexibly with the new version. UCS 4.4 has also added support for trusts, which enables the integration of services operated in Microsoft domains.
