UCS 4.4-5: Fifth point release for UCS 4.4 available

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.
