Bill – TIER Grouper deployment guide

 Issue roundup
Resourcing Grouper project
• Part of TIER planning

• About 2 FTEs currently

• Could envision more to get work done on provisioning and UI and answering questions on the list

• Suggestion that Grouper doc could be greatly improved

• Suggestion that Grouper and Shib should try to work better together to help the community

• Both are primarily Java environments, but not using uniform standards, not documented in similar ways, don’t have uniform containers, tomcat versus jetty,

• If there is not going to be an effort to harmonize tools, it would be good to explain the reasons for discrepancies (such as using Tomcat or jedi) in the documentation.

• Noted that TIER architects group is trying to do some harmonization.

Ohio State University Support Issues
• Branding the UI for tOSU

◦ Figured things out, need to vet approach, document

◦ ◦ [AI] (Chris) Extend CSS (add list of files), don't see the equivalent for JS (we can do that)
◦ Needs to alter the commonHeader or commonFooter (and index page as well), because of how the footer worked.  (insert some CSS in common header).  Changed the index for the mast head (top of html body).

◦ [AI] (Carey) send Chris the FROM and TO of changes he made 
• Menuing structure is awkward

◦ Under given branch, allow a group to create a high level folder, and have that folder create a folder structure underneath it

◦ Create a hook based on attribute to do a special thing

◦ Menu to add that attribute (get metadata)

◦ ◦ [AI] (Carey)  send Chris specific example of hook based on attribute and menu to add that attribute?
