LDAP server support

Work with several servers at once, organize them in groups, and easily copy data between them. LDAP Administrator supports LDAPv2 and LDAPv3 protocols and allows working with OpenLDAP, Netscape/iPlanet, Novell eDirectory, Oracle Internet Directory, Lotus Domino, Microsoft Active Directory, CA Directory, Siemens DirX, and any other LDAP server.

Efficient navigation

Set various LDAP filters to display only the entries that match your criteria. Quickly access frequently viewed branches by setting a custom base DN to start browsing from. Jump to previously viewed objects using navigation history. And much more.

VLV and simple paging support

Use the specially crafted Virtual List View (VLV) and simple paged result controls to retrieve only the entries you need, without waiting for thousands of records to load.

HTML view

View LDAP entries in a user friendly manner, represented as an HTML page. You can also customize the way the information is displayed. For example, if you don't want some attributes to be displayed for objects of a specific type, you can remove these attributes from the corresponding HTML page template.

Read-only server profile

Prevent directory data from being accidentally modified or deleted by making your LDAP server profiles read-only in LDAP Administrator.

LDAP referrals support

LDAP Administrator fully supports LDAP referrals and provides several modes for handling them.

Template-based entry creation

The template-based method allows you to create new entries quickly and easily, based on the templates with predefined lists of required and optional attributes.

Bulk object modification

Modify multiple objects simultaneously, wherever they are located. Simply search for objects that fit your criteria, select them, and modify them in bulk.

Streamlined object handling

Move and copy LDAP objects using Windows clipboard, or just drag-and-drop them. Quickly copy object DNs, RDNs, LDAP URLs, or copy the entire entry data in LDIF, DSMLv1, DSMLv2, and CSV formats.

Attribute editors

LDAP Administrator provides various attribute value editors strictly associated with attribute type and syntax that allow you to easily modify binary, password, date and time attributes.

Attribute value references

Value references allow you to generate attribute values based on other attribute values of the object.

LDAP request log

The LDAP request log keeps track of all LDAP requests sent by LDAP Administrator and the responses received from the server.

Powerful directory search

Search the directory quickly and efficiently using many different search options offered by LDAP Administrator.

Quick search

Quick search lets you instantly find a directory object by typing a keyword or a phrase that is a part of its attribute values. Intelligent autocompletion will suggest relevant objects while you are still typing.

LDAP-SQL search

Search the directory using the SQL syntax. With LDAP-SQL, you can execute searches that cannot be done using standard LDAP search methods.

LDAP filter builder

Simplify the creation of LDAP search filters and save them for later usage with the help of LDAP Filter Builder.

Search history

Every search made with the Directory Search tool is recorded in history. Quickly find and restore previous searches, pin frequently-used searches, and much more.

Advanced SQL search

Perform search requests that cannot be executed via standard LDAP means. Use LDAP attribute values as criteria for search filters.

SQL editor

SQL editor is a powerful tool for creating and editing SQL expressions. It offers syntax highlighting, context IntelliSense, undo/redo operations, outlining and other useful IDE features that significantly simplify the creation of SQL queries.

Bulk update/delete

Bulk update or delete LDAP entries that meet your specific conditions. For example, you can easily delete all directory users, whose accounts have expired.

Built-in SQL functions

LDAP-SQL provides many built-in functions that you can use in queries to find or perform operations on LDAP entries.

SQL output

SQL Output pane provides detailed information about the execution of SQL statements, displays syntax and runtime errors, and allows to quickly locate errors in the code.

Data export

LDAP Administrator lets you easily transfer or back up directory information by exporting it to a file in LDIF, DSMLv1, DSMLv2, MS Excel, CSV, Plain Text, or HTML format.

Data import

LDAP Administrator provides handy wizards that enable data import from LDIF, DSMLv1, DSMLv2, and CSV files to your directory.

LDAP import/export from command line

The laimex tool supplied with LDAP Administrator enables you to import/export directory data in an unattended mode. Great for automating LDIF import operations and daily directory backups.

Out-of-the-box reports

LDAP Administrator offers a large number of out-of-the-box reports, which provide information about widely used directory objects such as Users, Computers, Groups, Organizational Units, POSIX Accounts, etc

Creating custom reports

Though LDAP Administrator provides a wide range of ready-to-use reports, sometimes you might need a report that is not on the list. For this purpose, LDAP Administrator gives you the possibility to create absolutely new reports or customize the existing ones.

Working with report results

After a report is generated, you can manage its results in the same way you manage usual LDAP entries: modify them in bulk or export to formats like LDIF, DSMLv1, DSMLv2, CSV, Excel, Plain Text, and HTML. Any search result can also be quickly located in the directory tree.

Advanced methods of LDAP authentication

LDAP Administrator supports the most popular secure and non-secure LDAP authentication mechanisms, and ensures safe communication with any LDAP server.

Credentials manager

LDAP Administrator has an integrated credentials manager that can securely store the credentials for accessing LDAP servers. Gone are the days of entering the credentials over and over every time you bind to your servers.

Establish secure SSL connections with your LDAP servers to ensure that all transferred data is encrypted and protected.
