  • Grouper configuration in UI read-mode
Skip to end of metadata
Go to start of metadata

You can see configuration in the UI in 2.4.0 patches: grouper_v2_4_0_api_patch_66, grouper_v2_4_0_ui_patch_39, grouper_v2_4_0_ws_patch_7

This shows where configuration comes from and metadata about configuration.

You must be a sysadmin to view/edit

Quick start

Note: this requires all config files to be in the UI.  So before importing, make sure the UI (and WS and loader) has a grouper-ws.properties and a grouper-loader.properties and grouper-ui.properties.  Note those files can be blank.


configuration in grouper-ui-ng.base.properties

#######################################
## Configuration in ui
#######################################

# allow configuration from ui
# {valueType: "boolean", required: true}
grouperUi.configuration.enabled=true

# allow configuration only from these IP ranges, e.g. 1.2.3.4/32 or 2.3.4.5/24, comma separated, leave blank if available from everywhere
# {valueType: "string", multiple: true}
grouperUi.configurationEditor.sourceIpAddresses = 127.0.0.1/32

# if the source IP is set by apache or proxy or whatever
# {valueType: "string", sampleValue: "X-FORWARDED-FOR"}
grouperUi.reverseProxyForwardedForHeader = 


You can:

  1. Disable UI configuration

  2. Open up the source IP address to let a non localhost IP address

  3. List a reverse proxy header where IP address is retrieve from in the incoming HTTP request, e.g. X-FORWARDED-FOR


Note: you can set this in the database via GSH.  See the GrouperShell wiki for more info


Debug source IP address configuration in log4j.properties

Changes in config file location

The grouper-ui.base.properties and grouper-ws.base.properties have been moved to the API from the UI and WS.  The new names are grouper-ui-ng.base.properties, and grouper-ws-ng.base.properties.


TODO

If another file overrides the database, and the property is in that file, give message to user that their edit wont matter
