[AI] (Tom) invite Chris Phillips to an upcoming Grouper-Dev call
Team wants to have option to send SCIM messages and want to talk with Chris about SCIM format options, prospects. Align on where standard is and is going and what Grouper will do with it.
[AI] (DaveL) record ideas about handling categories on the Post PSP Provisioning page (Brown’s case) based on the Feb. 11 Grouper call discussion (TODO)
[AI] (Misagh and Chris) tested the unmappable character issue using Unicode. Then created wiki page to document the approach. Misagh created a JIRA for a new issue he found. Non-english chars don’t seem to render correctly Chris working on this Grouper internationalization issue
[AI] (DaveL) follow up on provisioning empty groups to LDAP to be sure the solution is documented (Still TODO)
[AI] (Tom) to bring pen testing need into TIER process (remains long term)
Where released tarballs should go -

TIER Core Technology Team
- to help advise on architectural processes
- increase alignment between previously independent dev groups (Grouper, Shib, COmanage, etc.)
- Chris will be the point person from Grouper
-Chris received a Google doc to specify the processes currently used for Grouper
Brainstorm on job description elements for replacement for DaveL on the Grouper Core team
Willing to work within the Grouper code base, toolkit, practices:
using both ant and maven
Java 5 and Java 6
logging, auditing, managing configuration
Ideal to have Grouper deployment/development expertise and familiarity w Grouper typical use cases
Shibboleth knowledge is useful
primary focus is on provisioning
working with SCIM
experience provisioning to Google Apps and APIs for other cloud services is a plus
LDAP and AD experience is useful
documentation and training skills helpful
What percentage of time are we looking for? 50+% ?
[AI] Tom draft “job ad” and send to core list.
Audit Reporting Issue
https://bugs.internet2.edu/jira/browse/GRP-939 as a lead in to how we should think about audit reporting
Audit records might be an area where consistency is desired across TIER components
Grouper has user audit, point in time audit, and audit of every action?
Configurable level of logging?
would be good to get more requirements
Did not have time to discuss on this call:
Hooks and Copy Group
Virtual attribute for displayed Subject description
Audit events: add more high level actions? Import? Export? Others?
https://bugs.internet2.edu/jira/browse/GRP-1107 default browser view for new UI
