Find and report all Mail Owner access levels and various connected properties and settings regarding their permissions across multiple databases on multiple servers.

Script Level: Easy
This script can be used by itself in aclEZ to process a currently opened server, or with the new function found in replicationEZ that lets you launch a script on a selection of servers directly from within the interface. Learn more about this function here.
This script will parse the entire mail directory folder on a given server to find all mail owners set side by side with a selection of key properties and settings that govern access and permissions to their respective mail databases. A report will be generated and exported into an Excel file. Each access level will be reported on its own sheet within the file.

Create a new item across all documents in a specific category—and across multiple databases.

Script Level: Easy
This script can be used by itself in scanEZ to process a currently opened database, or with the new function found in databaseEZ that lets you launch a script on a selection of databases directly from within the interface. Learn more about this function here.
Small in size, yet very flexible in where you can take it, this script will simply select a category of documents and create a new item across all documents within that focused selection.

Find all documents that match a given formula across a selection of databases, and export the findings into an Excel file.

Script Level: Intermediate
This script can be used by itself in scanEZ to process a currently opened database, or with the new function found in databaseEZ that lets you launch an automation script on a selection of databases directly from within the interface. Learn more about this function here.
This intermediate script allows you to specify desired values in the beginning of the script using variables, minimizing any changes to the body of the script itself. This script will search a selection of databases for all the documents that match a defined formula. The name of the database that they are found in, as well as their UNIDs, will be exported into an Excel report.

Find and report all scheduled agents that have and have not run on a given server and create a concise report of agents in both conditions.

Script Level: Advanced
This script can be used by itself in agentEZ to process a currently opened server, or with the new function found in replicationEZ that lets you launch a script on a selection of servers directly from within the interface. Learn more about this function here.
This advanced script will load all enabled and scheduled agents on a currently loaded server and designate those that did not run. Additionally, it will create an Excel report of all agents, putting those that did run and those that did not on two separate pages. The report's layout will be set up in a way so that it is easy to check the status.

Find multiple different types of profile documents and create reports of each different type found.

Script Level: Advanced
This script can be used by itself in scanEZ to process a currently opened database, or with the new function found in databaseEZ that lets you launch an automation script on a selection of databases directly from within the interface. Learn more about this function here.
This advanced script will iterate over a List containing different user-definable profile document names, and, for each given name, conduct a regex search to find the profile documents that contain a matching name. A multi-faceted report containing a full breakdown of all the items and their values within each document will be exported to an Excel file; each document name's search results will be placed in its own page in the file.

automation
New in Automation

Automate more tasks thanks to a fully matured command language.

First introduced in version 12, automation has always held a lot of promise for performing large, repetitive tasks. EZ Suite 16.5 sees the XML-based automation command language optimized and expanded beyond the original set of tags, and the capabilities that were available even as recently as version 16. The full catalog of available tags can be found in our Help section.



Record your actions to scripts with the powerful new Automation Recorder.

An all-new Automation Recorder takes performance optimization to another level by letting you record and "replay" actions you've performed in the EZ Suite tools. Simply hit Record at the beginning of your process, do your work, and the recorder will save the steps in an independent automation file that can be either recalled at a later time "as is," or modified to fit your needs.



Launch scripts on a current selection through other EZ Suite tools.

Bridges between EZ Suite tools have become far more robust! Thanks to a new right-click menu option for multi-server and multi-database tools (not applicable to consoleEZ), you can now process a current selection of entries through other tools by employing a pre-saved automation script. Process a selection of servers with agentEZ or aclEZ, process a selection of databases with scanEZ—the possibilities are huge, and only a few clicks away!



Build your automation lists fast with the 'Create Automation List from Selection' feature.

Thanks to the new Create Automation List from Selection function, you can quickly "export" a selection of entries to a properly formatted List that can be used in an automation script Loop.



See the progress of your automation scripts in real time, and with a level of detail that you choose.

A new, dedicated console displays a full log of operations carried out through automation scripts—in real time—and with script-responsive verbosity levels.

Automation scripts in real time


flexygrid
The flexYgrid

Create better reports faster with the improved 'Append Rows' Export option.

Reporting is cleaner and easier to manage thanks to improvements in the "Append Rows" Export option that automatically reuses matching column headers. Combine reports worry-free. Regardless of how you have your grid columns placed, data exports now recognize columns and will append the like data to the proper place in your reports.

Append Rows Export option

Keep your selection focus while performing Group/Sort operations.

Stay focused, on your current selections that is. Your selections now stay intact after Sort and Filter operations. And a new auto-scroll feature brings your focused entries back into view with only a key



Focus columns automatically thanks to Search function enhancements.

The flexYgrid Find First… regex search option will now focus the column in which the regex match is found—guesswork is eliminated.



Group/Ungroup easier thanks to quick toolbar buttons.

New one-click Group/Ungroup command buttons can now be found in the toolbar. Group by the currently focused column in the click of a button (or a CTRL+ I), or reset even the heaviest grouping arrangement (CTRL+SHIFT+G).



Choose from new options to Hide/Unhide columns.

Hiding columns just got easier, and safer! New right-click menu options and key commands let you hide currently selected columns (CTRL+F6) and unhide the last hidden column (CTRL+F6) for a virtual undo, or toggle between states.



Combine filters on individual columns for heightened precision.

Already a powerful function, the precision of column filters has been enhanced through the ability to enact multiple filters on the same column header. Zero in on specifics by adding in one filter after another.



See grid counts fast with the new grid status bar.

See totals for rows loaded, rows displayed, hidden rows, and selected rows at a glance thanks to a new count-status bar available in every flexYgrid panel.

Grid status bar

Filter values more accurately through "Real value" Filter logic.

Sort operations are more precise, regardless of cell and group formatting, due to a process that uses the "real" values and not the text-formatted value displayed in the grid.

Real value Filter

Display all filtered and manually-hidden rows at the click of a button.

Keep a firm grasp on the totality of your data throughout your operations. In just the click of a button, or with a CTRL + ALT + V, toggle the display of all rows filtered out of, or hidden in, a grid panel. These rows are color coded for easy identification.

Show all hidden and filtered rows

Hold operation processing for quicker data manipulation.

Sometimes, the amount of data you're working with is so large that processing between operations inevitably takes a bit of time. Group, Filter, Load etc. on grids with extremely large data volumes are still comparatively fast, but the minute waiting times between processes can add up. The Suspend Grid Redraw feature lets you hold the processing until you've set up all of your operations, and then take care of them all at once.



View everything in your group zone.

Perform as many groupings as you want, see them ALL thanks to a scrollable group zone.

View everything in your group zone

Reset grid configurations in total security.

A lot of preparation and work can go into finding the data you need. When it's time to revert back to your default settings, or even the original layout, you've got to be sure. By requiring a confirmation before the reset is carried out, any wrong clicks will be avoided.

Grid configuration resets

View your data based on a specific time span back from the current date.

An all-new cut-off date column filter option lets you choose to see only entries that fall within a specified time span back from the current date.

View your data based on a specific time span


scanEZ
New in scanEZ

Copy/Move documents with powerful new options to control how they are copied or moved in addition to the folder structure of their destination.

The Copy/Move Documents to Multiple Databases function is the closest thing Notes users can get to a drag-n-drop operation for Notes databases, and it has undergone both UX improvements and backend expansion. In addition to the ability to keep the original folder structure—or manually specify a new one—for the target documents, you can now choose from 4 different ways to carry out a Copy or Move operation: copy documents as new, replicate them, or replicate them with the option to force increment their sequence number depending on if the documents already exist in the target databases or not.



Export all files and attachments from a selection of documents in only a couple of clicks.

With scanEZ's new Export All Attachments and Files… feature, attachment archival across scores of documents has literally become a 2-step process. Select the documents, and select where you want to save the attachments. That's all there is to it!



Conduct in-depth audits between two non-replica databases with the new Database Comparator.

Have you ever wished that you could direct the Replication Auditor's unique powers towards two databases that aren't replicas? scanEZ now includes the new Database Comparator that lets you conduct Note Info audits between any two like databases that contain the same key UNIDs. Display only differences between them, or display the entire audit.



Get more out of the $Flags help section.

The valuable $Flags quick reference definition bank is now flexYgrid enabled.

Expanded $Flags help section

Edit MIME/RFC822 compatible items.

scanEZ is now fully compliant with MIME/RFC 822 standards and thus has the ability to read out and edit related items.

Edit MIME/RFC822 compatible items.


Manage design source files in design elements like Xpages. (See also the new document attachment export feature.)

Reach beyond the backend of XPages with the ability to parse and export the contents of multiple components that just weren't reliably accessible before—access compiled javascript, eclipse files, custom control components, and more.




databaseEZ
New in databaseEZ

Create/delete Full Text indexes across multiple databases.

databaseEZ now supports creation/deletion of Full Text Indexes. (Note: Full Text Index creation only takes effect at the next Update.)

replicationEZ
New in replicationEZ

Safeguard your grid entries for replicas loaded across servers while changing your selection.

An improved process for selecting/deselecting databases in the selection panel now offers the option to prevent unloading databases if you already have replicas from other servers loaded in the grid.



Get a clearer view of servers thanks to alphabetical selection tree ordering.

Finding your desired server within a full-capacity replicationEZ selection tree just got a whole lot easier. Your servers are now displayed in alphabetical order.

consoleEZ
New in consoleEZ

View detailed error logs for multiple servers at once.

Expanded functionality in consoleEZ's Dashboard panel now lets you see the error log details for multiple servers at once.

Pause "live" grids to activate all "static" grid capabilities.

Live grids like the grid in consoleEZ dashboard are powerful tools, but the live nature of the data stream presented barriers between these grids and the built-in flexYgrid tools like the Pivot Table builder and Data Comparator. This is no longer true: thanks to the Pause Data Stream option, you'll be able to use all the tools and options available in static flexYgrid panels on live grids (while paused).




agentEZ
New in agentEZ

See agent presence faster thanks to color coding enhancements in the database selection tree.

A new display development in agentEZ's database selection tree now indicates different stages of agent presence at a glance. Databases displayed in gray text lack agents of any type and pink text indicates a lack of the specific type of agent indicated in the agent search filter.
