    1. Suggestion1 - is there a more elaborate document page for the My Services feature?
      1. Currently there isn't a lot to explore: Grouper new UI#Myservices
    1. I have yet to dig into that too.... ( So a knowledgeable answer would be great.. but I can not provide it.) 

      However it looks like:

      A services is defined by an AttributeDef of type "Service". (Which are only allowed to be assigned to folders. And they are only allowed to be "tag" attributes[No values], single assigned. )

         For my testing I created etc:services (folder) and an attribute definition named "service". Not a creative name, but helpful if you search for "services". (smile) 

      Then I crated an AttributeDef that I named "Services". ( "etc:attribute:services:Services" )

      Then I created AttributeName(s) that would be used to "scope" the UI by. ( I used "VPN", "LDAP" as example "AttributeName" :  "etc:attribute:services:VPN", and "etc:attribute:services:LDAP")

      Then you assign those AttributeNames to folders that hold groups for those "Services". ( ref:...:ldap ).


      There needs to be one or more groups that you can "Manage" ( Admin privileges, Update Privileges on at least one group in the folder) to see the Service name in the list of services.

      But I got it to work....

      NOTE: For testing make sure you assign at least one of the AttributeNames  to multiple folders. The UI "adds a step" to the "My Services" flow when a service has multiple folders with groups that you can admin in them.

      My Services  ( get a list of services for you)

        click on a service with only one folder – you are navigated to that folder

        click on a service with more than one folder – you get a list of folders for that service

      BTW: UI 2.3 Patch 44 makes this a lot easier. (smile)   It still has a few tweaks that are needed, but install it. (smile)

      1. Many thanks Carey, of House Black!

        We are running 2.3, I'll have to check which patch level, but you've provided a lot of good info to try to explore the feature more. Thank you very much, I appreciate the help!
