Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSTUDIO-498) Save search to disk
Date Thu, 11 Jun 2009 13:37:07 GMT


David H commented on DIRSTUDIO-498:

Clarification on Medium wish
Today you can right click and get the option "Delete Search"
If you hold CTRL down when choosing more than one search, then deletions gives the option
"Delete Searches"

In my Medium wish I would like to be able to mark more than one search with CTRL down when
choosing more than one search, and the save/export options will change to: "Save/Export Searches"

Thats on the GUI-part

But for the file itself you need to find a way of allowing more than one search being saved.
How that is done I leave to the developers, but as an old programmer I know this is to ask
more than just a simple saved search as in my Minimum wish, and that is why I classified it
as "medium".

And to clarify the Premium wish: It really applies to both minimum and medium wishes. I just
tried to picture the work needed, and going into other modules (like extension handling in
installers and everything) will take more time from developers.

The first "minimum wish" is really something that would be really really great feature if
it could be done easily.
I would gladly put in a lower priority Wish for the premium wish in later versions even if
that also is a cool feature :)

>    Affects Versions: 1.5.0
>            Reporter: David H
>   Original Estimate: 6h
>  Remaining Estimate: 6h
> Now that Directory Studio in 1.5.0 is able to copy searches between connections..
> ..why not make an option to save LDAP-searches to disk?
> It would save a lot of time for people working with LDAP catalogs and where they would
like to use the exact same searches on lot of clients.
> Minimum wish:
> A right click on search and "save/export search"
> A right click on search folder and "load/import search"
> Medium wish:
> A right click with CTRL that saves multiple searches
> A right click on search folders that imports multiple searches
> Premium wish:
> Associate extension on files with a LDAP searches so that they are added automaticly
to the right server if that server exists
> I hope this has not been wished for before... but this feature is the ONLY stopper for
my bank to start using Directory Studio
> (they do a lot of LDAP-work on their catalog (over 20000 objects) where they directly
want to edit objects found after a search)
