Tom Barton, U. Chicago, Chair
Chris Hyzer, U. Penn
Jim Fox, U. Washington
Shilen Patel, Duke
Misagh Moayyed, Unicon
David Langenberg, U. Chicago
Mike Grady, Unicon
New Action Item
[AI] (Tom) Schedule discussion on the “job ad” to replace DaveL for next Grouper-dev call.
Carry Over Action Items
[AI] (Tom) invite Chris Phillips to an upcoming Grouper-Dev call
[AI] (DaveL) record ideas about handling categories on the Post PSP Provisioning page (Brown’s case) based on the Feb. 11 Grouper call discussion (TODO)
[AI] (Misagh and Chris) tested the unmappable character issue using Unicode. Then created wiki page to document the approach. Misagh created a JIRA for a new issue he found. Non-english chars don’t seem to render correctly
Chris suggested to try this on installed version, not on Dev.
Misagh tried with the installed version. No difference.
Next step: Chris take a look at the middle of page where problem shows itself
[AI] (DaveL) follow up on provisioning empty groups to LDAP to be sure the solution is documented (Still TODO)
[AI] (Tom) to bring pen testing need into TIER process (remains long term)
Grouper Team Items
[AI] (Tom) Schedule discussion on the “job ad” for next Grouper-dev call.
Consider adding qualification as a Grouper deployer, in addition to java developer.
Need for on-going operational support in ecosystem. Unicon has history of doing so in related areas, might do so for Grouper too in response to need.
Hosting provider potential challenge: access to Grouper shell needed. A config editor UI might make that problem go away. Might incorporate a web console for complicated things. 3rd party tools might be incorporated.
Installer change to produce Docker container, perhaps. Docker imposes no constraint on using an external database, it doesn’t need to be in the same container. You can even link two Docker images together, eg, an API and a DB one.
Provisioning - ICF type connectors framework perhaps. How does ICF work with messaging??
Issue roundup -Skipped
Default for loader failsafe limit
Add decoration to loader group to make failsafe a per-group setting. Best to do as grouper attribute rather than loader config element. Or maybe config UI magic that can accomplish the same. Chris is communicating with Carl W @ Layfayette about what’s needed exactly.
