ADEdit is implemented as a Tcl application. Tcl (Tool Command Language) is a powerful but easy to learn programming language that provides full scripting ability. With Tcl, administrators can write simple management scripts that perform complex tasks with a single execution. Experienced Tcl programmers can also include ADEdit commands in their own Tcl applications to add Centrify management capabilities and GUI interfaces for ADEdit operations to those applications.
Administrators who aren’t familiar with Tcl can use ADEdit as a scripting tool on their Linux or UNIX computer to manage Centrify directly from the command line or by combining commands into scripts.
