In LDAP Administrator 2015.1, we further enhanced restoring of deleted Active Directory objects and added support for Active Directory Recycle Bin. We also added the possibility to use the uid attribute in POSIX group membership and provided a mechanism to quickly navigate using List View.


Enhanced Object Restore

Softerra LDAP Administrator 2015.1 brings new powerful features for handling deleted Active Directory objects, such as restoring objects in bulk, preserving directory hierarchy when restoring objects, undo for the delete operation, and support for Active Directory Recycle Bin. This release comes with a completely new and redesigned Restore Deleted Objects dialog that provides many new features to make searching for deleted objects easier.
