Cloudera Manager now supports Active Directory objects with additional attributes

Cloudera Manager now supports Active Directory objects with additional attributes other than just accountExpires and objectClass for every new account creation.

You can now start using some of the sample attributes such as employeeType, Usertype, Manager, passwordNeverExpires, etc.

Routing email alerts to different email addresses
You can now configure the alert rules in Cloudera Manager to send email alerts to various email addresses based on rules you provide for users, hosts, services, roles, and alert rules. See Alert email routing. This feature is in technical preview and should not be used in a production environment.
