3.0 What will be Deprecated?

NetIQ iManager: NetIQ iManager 3.2 release will be the last major release for iManager. From this release forward, we will only provide important bug fixes through support packs. No new features will be considered for iManager and support packs will only be provided for the product lifecycle. The replacement for iManager will be a modernized administration application called Identity Console. We have shipped a preview version of Identity Console with eDirectory 9.2 for customers to use and provide feedback. This version is not an immediate replacement for iManager as only a subset of management features has been implemented. We are encouraging customer input so as to incorporate feedback before completing the full migration and thus ensuring that we have a customer focused, viable and highly usable administration interface to replace iManager. You can download the latest version of Identity Console from the NetIQ Download Website.

4.0 Supported Upgrade Paths

To upgrade to iManager 3.2, you need to be either on iManager 2.7.7.x or higher.
