Reftool is scheduled to be updated at 7:30pm on Wednesday February 23, 2021. While this happens the service will be unavailable for about 15 minutes.
Service Offering Access
A new block has been added when viewing a user’s page. It is located below “Contact Info”. The purpose of this block is to display the access and licenses users have to different service offerings, based on their groups.
Clicking on “Service Offering” toggles the filtering method: ascending, descending, or none for the column based on alphabetical order.
Clicking on “Access” toggles the filtering of the service offering access based on the status.
It is possible to filter “Access” and “Service Offering” simultaneously.

AD OU Group Querying

New Expanded User URL
To query the proper domains for a user, their distinguished name must first be fetched in order to determine their domain. In order for this to work properly when navigating directly to a user’s profile from a URL, the routing has bee simplified.
Previously Reftool user profiles were routed through their explicit GUID:
