Current Work Tasks

Vivek – Loader metadata

·         Chris –patches, deprovisioning

Ive been working on patches and emails to list, made progress on deprovisioning, need to commit for Vivek

Bert – PSPNG

  1. I decided to kill four birds with two stones in regards to docker/integration tests. Essentially, I split the openldap server (and mysqld) out of the grouper container and am using docker-compose to run the tests with three containers. This lets me move between other ldap servers (like apacheds, etc) as well as delegate the config & modularity of the ldap server to the docker-image publishers.

Shilen –GSHNG, vtldap -> ldaptive

  • Looked at vtldap configs from Bert, nothing surprising.
  • Patch for upgraded groovy
  • Windows experience better (arrow keys work)
  • Command line flag to force the legacy GSH
  • Unrelated, change subject wasnt working correctly for composites.  Stale state exception.  Patch for that
  • Emails back and forth about Auckland, performance about loading million groups
  • PIT data being used was more disk space than expecting
  • Should set expectations about churn somehow. [AI for shilen to document PIT churn database space]

[AI] Chris to add installer admin options for PIT maintenance

 Chad – Library updates

  • Will commit to master the poms and jars
  • Has been running new jars at UNC and it works
  • CSRFguard doesnt work with struts but we will remove struts in 2.4 when we migrate functionality to new ui
