Discussion  



Current work tasks

 Vivek – Permissions in UI
• Permissions work done and waiting for Chris’s review.

• Now working on Folder screens and attribute assignments

• Action dropdown on far right

• Defining attribute so UI knows what to do with it, how to display it - could be too much for the Grouper 2.4 release


Chris –performance issues, unit test failures
• Had a lot of unit test failures after recent commit

• Taking cache out of creating objects

• Will run suite again

• We should run unit tests periodically to help in future Grouper releases

• Q: is there a server for continuous integration? Yes, Misagh set that up in Github

• Get some emails about failure,

• [AI] (Chad)   investigate the continuous integration in GIthub 

 
 
Bert – PSPNG

 Shilen – move subject API to Grouper
• Waiting for commit to be added back.

• Shilen can help fix unit tests that are failing

•  

• Putting configs in database?

• Have UI manage overlays?

• Use same config class to get ref to the property

• Another format of storing the config

• Internationalization issues go beyond base configuration

• Internationalization of the web UI needs more attention than internationalization of error messages

• Swiss Army Knife API -- does many things

• Moving text file into API provides more flexibility

 
• Email re failed test and security check in.

• Shilen suggests run it as root

• One method calls another method calls another

• Each should check to see if user not root (and check security flag off ) then run it as root


 
Chad – Unit test failures
• Updated several JIRAs

• Inherited admin issue

• Action item on SCIM dependency 

• Grouper issues on Github forwards to pull request

• Work on master branch or 2.3 branch?  Ask DaveL?

Changes to the 2.3 branch go to master
This could become a programming standard
Developers should have both master and 2.3 cloned.
