Action ItemsGrouper Project Action Items (Google Doc) 


 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
