LDAP Tool Box Service Desk 0.5

The LDAP Tool Box project provides a set of LDAP-related applications, administrative tools, and other utilities. They have just released the 0.5 release of their Service Desk tool, which is a web application for administrators that supports viewing and managing accounts in an LDAP directory server. This release includes the following changes:

  • Added support for PHP version 8 and higher
  • Added an option for notifying users and administrators by email when a password is changed or reset
  • Added an enable/disable button for forcing a user to reset their password upon authentication
  • Added the ability to display DNs as links to the corresponding entries
  • Improved support for displaying timestamps
  • Improved support for displaying postal addresses
  • Fixed an issue in which accounts could be locked when not using a password policy that has account lockout enabled
  • Fixed an issue resulting from the application providing a string when an array was expected

Note that features for managing password policy state may only be available for certain types of directory servers.
