NetIQ Designer for Mac OS has Finally Arrived! (Sorta)
NetIQ has released a beta version of their Designer for IDM tool on the Mac OS. For years Designer has only been supported on Windows and Linux but with this release NetIQ has officially taken that last step to add Mac support. If you have a Mac and want to use Designer on your native OS without having to use a VM or dual-boot system, you can download the BETA version at the link below:
You will need to register an account to download the required files if you do not already have one.
If you choose to use this do keep in mind that this is a BETA version of the tool so there are some bugs that have already been reported to NetIQ and updates will be rolled out as the development of this tool is completed. At the time of this blog’s creation there is no official release date set for the final build.
NetIQ also has an open thread in their forums that discusses the BETA build that is being used by many of the early adopters to report issues and bugs. It is worth a quick look if you choose to use this version to know what limitations you might can expect.
