This project is coming to completion as a second phase of the midPoint development to provide for Grouper <=> midPoint integration in a way that can lead to other "component/SOR" / midPoint integrations.

The midPoint container is currently available and being tested and refined by the architects.

midPoint is an open source software application that was adopted by the TIER community members at TechEx 2017.

It can be used for a variety of IAM functions and viewed as excellent facility to provision / de-provision identities and association authorization into applications.

Planning is under way for a next phase of work to provide Roll-Back ability to revert to previous versions of metadata for IdP operators.

Unicon and Internet2 are developing a joint communications campaign to engage with the community to test/adopt.

The goal of this User Interface is to make the management of complex Service Provider metadata much easier to manage and maintain for those IdP Operators who are not highly skilled with Shibboleth.
