Blog on Grouper 2.4 Release and Deprovisioing
Visualizing group structures (MichaelG)
- Very interesting features.
- Similar to Java Applet (that was removed in 2.4) for permissions.
- Current implementation:
- Gsh to discover data (based on config file driven process) to cached data files.
- Run “dot” to produce SVG file for graph display.
- SVG has http(s) links back to Grouper UI for groups in the graph.
- Currently takes about 1-2 min to spin up gsh and discover data.Then less than a minute to produce the graph from the cached data set.
Current work tasks, and next tasks
- New service template
- Add instructions at top of the Template create page to instruct user about what unchecking options will do when the “create”(“Submit” ?) button is pressed.
- Database configs in database, remedy, Nagios, something cool with grouper
Bert – pspng
- Get scripts from servers into git ( disk space issues )
- Email to list about PSP? ( Sent, using Jira epic to trace responses)
- GSH and installer return code? Real time loader LDAP attributes. Patch 1 was LDAP attributes real - time. Incremental table on different database, API patch 2 does that.
- Loader disable flag, started working on that. Will a running job quit? GSH exit code
