Chris – loader in UI , deprovisioning

Move context buttons from group context menu to loader tab


(, patches

Bert – PSPNG

My main activity has been around Groups-that-require-members (GRP-1376). This is developed and needs one more (docker) unit test to make sure empty groups are being deleted.


I'll also respond to list questions asap and find out about Global Summit when my boss returns next week.

Shilen – real time loader

  • We looked at instrumentation wiki
  • Discussed having a UI 
  • Daemon deletes data after reading doesnt keep rollups
  • Not sure if conducive to UI
  • Some operations (count from memberships view) take a while on large registries


  • PSPNG provision to all provisioners? Asterisk idea from Gettes?

  • Subject API questions from Ohio

  • LDAP loader questions about types

  • Shilens instrumentation plans: [AI Shilen to send this to dev list: ]

  • Should we allow people with READ to see privileges?  Hmmm

    • We could have a link in the UI to contact the admins and it could send them a message

  • Systemd linux scripts

  • Hardware sizing

  • PSP to use one source instead of another

  • Jeffrey Crawford, 2/13, psp multiple ldaps

  • [AI for Chris]: update the penn pspng script to include attribute names

  • [AI for Chris]: status page for pspng (Gettes email)

  • [AI for Bert?]: full sync runs but status in grouper loader log is not set to SUCCESS (Gettes email)

  • Changelog temp to change log speed

  • [AI for Bert?] Paul Engle, 2/16, pspng and user defined attributes

  • Subject description, should it be standalone?  [AI chris] c;arify that the subject description should standalone since it is displayed by itself

  • GRP-1488: PSPNG: NullPointerException when subject no longer exists (fixed?  In patch?)

  • [AI for Shilen]: multiple nodes loader, needs to check if job is still running

    • When any daemon job runs, check the loader log, see if there is a recent one, running, with last updated in last couple minutes, if so dont run

  • Grouper loader checkbox and who should see it.

  • Gettes and performance.  More to do there?

  • Hierarchical loader bug.  Would be fixed when loader on multiple nodes is fixed?

  • [AI for Bert?] Marwan shahar and deleting groups in pspng? (2/20?)

  • [AI for Chris] 2/20 : Liam Hoekenga, inherited privileges.  Do they work for existing objects?

  • [AI for Bert]: get back to Akki Kumar about when groups that require a member will be implemented, GRP-1376: PSPNG: Support groups that require a member

  • [AI for Chris]: Chad redman 2/22: 2 issues: The source ID drop down list doesn't really show the "IDs" but rather the names. As an admin, I would be able to pick out subjects easier from an ID like "pid" or "app" instead of "person source" or "application source". The order also seems random, so it takes a while to find the right source. I didn't notice before, but the source drop down in the Search for an Entity form is the same way.   The Javascript that fills in the fields with default values gets in the way, as it erases anything I have entered in the fields, whenever I change the source option. For me, it would be better to have the fields blank, but mention what the default CheckConfig search terms are in the field label or description.

  • Pspng on multiple nodes

  • [AI for Chris]: Chad Redman: GRP-1489: Can't type multiple lines in Add Members copy/paste

  • [AI for Chris]: 2/23 Yoann Delattre: null pointer on privileges

  • [AI for Bert]: 2/23 Paul Engle: pspng authoritative all values of attribute

  • [AI for Bert]: 2/23 Julio Macavilca: malformed DN

  • Adding custom attribute with loader

  • [AI for Shilen]: 2/24 email from Jeff Mccollough about delete member performance

  • UI hosting performance questions

  • Unique name in a tree patch from oregon

  • [AI for Chris]: 2/24: Jeff Mccollough The second issue is a redirect to the home screen if group creation is cancelled. It should be leaving the browser at the same level of view it had before the group creation screen is shown. Overall, not a huge issue, but it would be great to get it fixed. Possible?

  • [AI for Bert]: 2/27: Paul Engle, I was excited when the grouper_loader_log seemed to indicate that the job finished in an hour or so. Less so once I looked at the log and realized it was actually still running its worker threads... :)
