What’s new is 5.0?

World map
Topology View

APD’s world map topology view displays device and hierarchy group positions in the topology as a global map where all users share the same map view. The changes made by the user are then saved and retained in that user’s view.

Software Upgrade Path
& Compatibility Table

The Compatibility Table feature in APD provides users with tools to determine the best path for software upgrades, as well as compatibility information between update files. It provides information about the currently-installed software, as well as compatibility comparisons to the previous and upcoming releases.

Introduction of
Manual Nodes

Manual nodes can be used to represent third party devices. These devices are displayed in Topology as well as in the list of devices in the Element Manager view. Port descriptions and location prefixes can be applied to these nodes, and manual connections can be added to represent physical layer connectivity.

Authorization
Configuration

Authorization Configuration Management allows users to authenticate with the APD Server to provide highest security. This allows users to review permissions & assign roles, view active sessions and users. Roles are defined by the user on screen and the permissions for each role can be reviewed on screen as well.
Authentication options such as LDAP and inbuilt login mechanism available in APD to login & define user roles & permissions

…and that’s not all,
because Starling 5.0 is not just about AllPath® Director.
