Grouper Action Items are here



Current work tasks

Vivek – WS messaging integration

  •             Discussion on routing and rabbitMQ
  •              Added routing queue for RabbitMQ, not final yet


Chris –patches, attestation, deprovisioning


 Chris finishing Grouper Attestation work


  • There is screen that shows all attestations you did not do anything about. This screen is slow to generate.
  •  Chris added another attribute at Group level to indicate if attestation is assigned at group level or stem level.  Then can query that. Shilen thinks this approach reasonable.  
  • Chris reviewed the various attributes connected to attestation, including those related to email notification
  • Should there be attestation comments/notes?
  • Right now attestation changes the date stamp
  • The UI for attestation is somewhat similar to de-provisioning, which Chris is also working on and plans to show at 2017 TechEx
  • Chris hopes to have some work on provisioning to show at TechEx too


Bert – PSPNG


Shilen – GSHNG

  • Added index on temp change log for 2.4
  • Updated real time loader to handle ldap jobs.  If message in queue for ldap then do full sync on the group (via database insert)

  • If you configure message listener, if you get errors, should base config have that

  • Should messaging be commented out in the client base?  Then user can put it in the non-base if they want it.
  • [AI] ( Shilen) comment out messaging in client base


  • Issue on the email list   - Grouper LDAP not returning all information -For the  loader,  would moving from vtldap to  ldaptive help?
  • [AI] (Shilen) will look at for the Grouper loader moving from vtldap to  ldaptive
