In part 1 of this article series I talked about the new Password Troubleshooter tool that comes with IDM 4.5. Over the years we have mocked Novell, then NetIQ for what is known as stealth marketing. This is one of those examples.

This entry is part 3 of 4 in the series What's new in IDM 4.5

The high level What’s New that the vendor provides is helpful, but rarely covers the level of detail I am interested in. One of the new features in the 4.5 release is the use of non-reference association values.
