Welcome to the Brown University Grouper Page

Grouper at Brown Training and Documentation Materials as of February 2015

Thanks to Brown University for sharing these training and documentation materials.

Note: These materials reference a locally developed groups management UI targeted at admin support people in departments. It allows them to see groups for their department that are fed from business systems (HR, FIS), and to then "fine tune" those groups by adding people who are not listed in the business systems.

Training videos on how to use the Grouper 2.2 UI to

  • find your group or dept
  • add a member to a group
  • create  a new group
  • remove a person from a group


Training videos on these topics:

  • BrownGroups Introduction
  • How to Customize a Group
  • Adding a Dept Admin
  • How to use Groups in Other Tools (such as for email or calendaring)


Documentation on "Using Groups at Brown"

Update January 2015

Brown is now pushing data from several campus business systems into Grouper; from there we're replicating group memberships (in real time) into several target systems: LDAP, LMS (Canvas), Google, Active Directory.  For more details on the Grouper deployment at Brown University, please contact steven_carmody [AT] brown.edu
