Current work tasks

Vivek – Accessibility

Misagh – gradle

  • No updates

Chris – config overlays, patches, packaging, installer admin

Chris working with TIER Packaging Group

Grouper installer admin

Installer does basic install, but this installer admin is for tasks like stopping and starting database, Tomcat, Loader, finding out where logs are

  • Installer Admin could be used in future to sync your config files, reducing need for so many DIFs

  • Doing group refresh in provisioning

  • Taking off full provisioning of a group? (might be better for the UI)

Configuring sources.xml has been a source of many questions

  • Chris suggests a screen in the UI for this

  • First convert sources.xml to  properties

  • Shilen agrees there are many questions about sources.xml

Bert – PSPNG… Empty Group is next (conversation and coding)

Shilen – real time loader

  • Made progress on Loader

Bill – TIER Grouper deployment guide

  • Making good progress with TIER API team
