Univention is pleased to announce the availability of Univention Corporate Server (UCS) 4.4-5, the fifth point release of UCS 4.4. It includes all errata updates issued for UCS 4.4-4 and provides various improvements and bugfixes especially in the following areas:
The replication of groups with many members has been greatly accelerated.
The permission to use services connected via SAML can now be configured for groups, previously the setting could only be set per user. In addition, a mapping of UCS LDAP attribute names to attribute names expected by the connected application can now be configured in the UMC for services connected via SAML.
An update for the OpenID Connect Provider allows that logins to the SAML Identity Provider are also valid for OpenID Connect. The Single Sign-On in UCS thus works across standards.
The User Self-Service has a new configurable feature that allows users to create and delete their own account in UCS. User accounts must be confirmed by clicking on an activation link in an e-mail before they can be used for the first time. Administrators can define which attributes users must specify during registration.
Various security updates have been integrated into UCS 4.4-5, e.g. Samba, OpenLDAP, the Linux kernel and PHP.
