The Directory Editor component of Directory Server Enterprise Edition is a Java web application that enables you to manage directory data by using a web browser. Directory Editor provides all users with remote access to directory data without having to install any client software.
Directory Editor offers the following functionality:
Enables administrators and end users to create and edit directory users, groups, and containers.
Supports several concurrent users, depending on the application server and underlying hardware.
Supports large enterprise directory installations.
Enables customization, branding, and embedding of the interface.
Customization dynamically adapts to the Directory Server schema.
Enables customization through the configuration of forms, rather than by direct programming.
Supports SSL-encrypted transmissions between the client browser and Directory Server.
Limits access to menus and functions, based on roles.
Roles are scanned to match group names. Roles have access to certain capabilities, which are high-level actions such as Browse, Configure, Debug, Edit, Create, and Search.
Limits access to the data based on the existing ACIs in Directory Server. It is not necessary to define ACIs that are specific to Directory Editor.
Enables paged display of large volumes of data, based on the virtual list view (VLV) index.
