Yes, though I would use changeLogEntry.getCreatedOn() which would give you a Timestamp instead of a Long.

How do I get the time the change occurred from a ChangeLogEntry ?

changeLogEntry.getCreatedOnDb() ?

In addition to the group name, you have the group id too since it's in the
change log, right? If so, you can use findById(String id, boolean

Otherwise, I think the "from" and "to" timestamps would be the same and they
would be the time at which the membership was deleted (which is also in the
change log). That would give you the group (by name) at the time the
membership was deleted.

When processing the grouper changelog, I think I would like to access
grouper objects as they were immediately before they were changed. Is
that possible ?

For example, when provisioning an incremental change

"remove member M from group G"

I want the grouper-shibboleth data connectors to return member M and
group G as they were at a specific time, that time being immediately
before they were changed.

I see that PITGroupFinder.findByName() has a timestamp range. I'm not
sure what range I would use.

Set<PITGroup> findByName(String name, Timestamp pointInTimeFrom,
Timestamp pointInTimeTo,
boolean exceptionIfNotFound, boolean orderByStartTime)

Thoughts ?
