Latest News and Updates
Select From File
Hyena can now select entries in the list window (right results window) from any matching designated column in a text file. This feature is useful if an external source of information needs to be used as a basis of finding and selecting the matching or non-matching items from, for example, the results of an Active Directory query. Options include file delimiter options, matching field selection, selection or non-selection results clearing, and a 'preview' option to view results.
Active Task Matching Options
Hyena v12.5 added the Key match option to Active Task when performing Active Directory update tasks. The new key option allows for any unique directory attribute to be used as a 'match' field when updating directory objects. One or more scopes can be defined, and saved as reusable templates, which serve as a starting point for directory searches when finding matching directory entries.
Enhanced Server View
In previous versions of Hyena, the 'Servers' listing for Active Directory domains has always relied upon using the Windows browse list. Hyena v12.2 introduces a new feature to retrieve servers from multiple Active Directory containers or organizational units, including options to search sub-containers and configure the attributes to display.
Group Policy Links View
Hyena's new Group Policy Links view can be used to display information on all GPOs linked to one or more organization units, including listing the number of policies, policy order, status, and WMI filtering information.
While the GPMC can be used to get this same information, its limited to only showing GPO links for a single organizational unit. Hyena's GPO link view can display this information for any number of OUs at the same time.
Active Directory Statistics View
The new 'Active Stats' view in Hyena makes it easy to display the total number and type of objects contained in one or more selected containers and organizational units. The 'Stats' view can show the number of objects for each object class or selected object classes.
Other options include sub-level searching, optional indentation for sub-containers, skipping disabled users or computers, and showing individual group types.
Bulk Administration Simplified
Hyena's new 'Active Task' and 'Active Editor' components are powerful tools to assist in making mass changes to Active Directory. Both functions offer an interactive and intuitive approach to what is often a complex and difficult process. Hyena v11.5 introduces a number of new features including easier updating of DN directory elements.
