 (GRP-1391) PSPNG - Failing on missing members  [Work is in progress]

 Speed up pspng on large grouper registries by not cycling through all groups [done, right Chris?]

  Incremental provisioning discussion (aka incremental loading)

 indexId migration [Chris answered]

  vivek jira issues [Resolved]

 grouper core on slack

Grouper group management for time-limited access. (AI for chris)

 DB supports it, UI needs to be extended (pick time, see future and expiring dates), daemon would need to be more frequent & efficient

 Bert asked about warning: There is a rule/attribute/daemon job that helps, popularity is unknown

Grouper box provisioning

  •  Grouper Box integration
  • (Runs outside of Grouper Daemon and uses grouper messages, possible future model)
  • A changelog-consuming shim also exists, possibly be compatible with older groupers

Three interfaces for low-bandwidth, simple groups:

  1.  Messaging
  2.  Gets groups from grouper (grouper web services)
  3.  Provisioning target (get all groups, get all people, get members of group, add/remove member from group)

Shilen - change log improvements

  •   Changed default batch size for change log consumers from 100 to 1000.  Now configurable.
  •   Option to allow diagnostics to succeed for a change log consumer if it hasn’t succeeded but is making progress.
  •   Issue with next change log sequence number when running daemon on multiple servers.

 Psp stack overflow - waiting for reply from Jeffrey (Bert: he probably fixed it since he found a later problem)

Ldap url search base value - this issue (around base URL being a config item and not working well with the overlay) is OK now. Chris: make properties/keys and then refer to them as variables. Overlay can override one of the pieces.
 [AI (Chris) reply with example of config overlay variables, explain this in PSP doc and Config overlay doc]

Oracle explain plan: Shilen’s DBAs are looking into it since Tuesday

 Psp [not Pspng] fails after 1500 users: Fixed by changing psp’s ldap xml configuration

Hibernate connection pool: Chris patched 11/1/2016
[AI] (Bert) will follow up and reply to email on Hibernate Connection Pool

\parentStemId (is id not name), stem scope required (SUB right?)

 pspng patches (zipping, compile issue, merge to master):

AI (Bert) look into Compile issue: Bert to look into it. Is Bert’s work area in sync??

AD sync at Penn works - Chris will keep an eye on this
