Active Directory Management, Reporting and Security
DSRAZOR for Windows | Technical Overview
DSRAZOR was designed to help Windows System and Network Administrators. It is a tool to help you assess your Active Directory security, ease your User/Object management, and coalesce your data in ways to help you manage more effectively. DSRAZOR is divided into three parts:
The DSRAZOR Console provides several Ready-to-run, Interactive Solutions. Each Solution in the Console can be immediately customized to your needs. When using the Console, you can "double click" on any Solution to use it on your network. And you can customize any Solution within the Console by "right clicking" on it instead. Right clicking will bring the Solution into the Designer and make it available for immediate drag-and-drop customization.
Each Solution within the Console and those you design and/or customize are enabled by the Runtime.
The DSRAZOR Designer provides a drag and drop development environment for creating Active Directory management Applets. Through its simple point-and-click interface you can create many types of Applets, including those that provide:
- Helpdesk services
- Use of your own custom Attributes!
Each Applet executes in its own self-contained environment enabled by the Runtime. You can also save your Applets as standalone executables, ready for distribution to your users. Unlike monolithic native tools, you and your users enjoy simple, to-the-point access to what you need without having to learn or be trained how to use unwieldy tools.
You can reduce your security exposures and training costs when you use the Designer to create your own, custom Applets.
The DSRAZOR Runtime brings to life each Solution within the Console and every Applet created by the Designer. And each Applet brought to life contains a special feature, the ability to save any list you see displayed! Whenever you right click over a list within an Applet you will have the ability to save the list! Presto! instant reporting! For all lists the save format is "quotes" around each item with a comma as the separator. And for Listviews you can also send the data straight to a printable report including a Header and page numbering!
Because the Runtime is separate from the Designer, each Applet operates as its own, stand-alone application. Note that there is no "overall console" in which these Applets exist. One benefit of this is that the user of the Applet(s) only sees what it was specifically designed to do and no more.
Further, each Applet (stored in a *.DSR file) is very small, typically less then 25K. The DSR stores just the screen layout(s), functions included and any rules defined. Applets are enabled by combining them with the Runtime (i.e. "DSRRUN Applet.DSR"). This design simplifies the upgrade process. Instead of having to 'apply' fixes or enhancements to each Applet, you only swap out one file (i.e. DSRRUN.EXE) and possibly a DLL file or two!
