Current work tasks

Vivek – Loader metadata, Attributes in UI
• [AI] Chris: review and make patch for Loader Metadata
• Once deprovisioning work is committed,  adjust it so loader can take advantage

Attributes for provisioning in UI
• Q: Are there examples of attributes in UI that could be helpful? 

• Some attributes are status related (such as email address)

• there could be a status version

• Keeping these up to date as provisioner updates the target group

• Concern that attributes can be “abused” and there are issues with attributes per provisioner.  Need metadata to keep things straight. We should provide examples of attributes per provisioner

• Name value pairs re-used across attribute definitions? They need their own namespace to distinguish them

• Use Java logic, need JSP (important for usability), might need to see if other provisioners exist, such as with LDAP Box provisioning relationship

• Good to be able to  get a list of provisioned groups

• Chris will implement these ideas

Attribute framework move from lite ui to new ui
• Chris and Vivek looking at gaps in the UIs
• Need to look at the Admin UI also and GSH 

Chris –patches, deprovisioning
• Attestation Fixes - Chris committed some changes, Chad did review, more changes

• Some caching is used. When an attestation gets deleted, there are calculation issues. 

• Can caching get turned off?  Can caching get turned off just when there are attribute  changes?
• [AI]: anytime an update is made to an attribute value, delete/update that assignment from the cache

◦ Evicting objects from Hibernate EHCache:

◦ You can make a “test” patch, and fix problems in a subsequent patch
