Definitely, that was the original requirement... :)



or you can go by groupId too

I think this is worth going for. I would like to wait for the new attribute

As you can see from my UI, there is a lot going on. I think it would add a
lot of value to have this capability in a grouper UI so each app doesn't have
to do this. However, as you say above, a lot of times it will make sense to
more tightly integrate with the external app, and that is fine too. I think
for 1.6 we can augment the web services to make it more easy to make external
UIs, currently there are a few more operations and options needed.
