Users of Grouper users sometimes need to create and manage entities in Grouper that are not part of a central subject source. An example is where Grouper integrates with an external database that has schemas needed for access management. These schemas must be represented in Grouper so they can be assigned to Groups/Roles/Permissions. Before Grouper 2.1 this could be solved by creating a group to represent the local entity, and not assigning members to the group.  In Grouper 2.1 a "local entity" can be created in the folder structure.
