It works for me.  Note, you need the latest 2.2.1 with all patches for hooks to work with moves and copies.


Configure this hook in = edu.internet2.middleware.grouper.hooks.GroupHooksImpl3


This is the output:


new name: test:someGroupNewName

old name: test:someGroupOldName

We are having an issue with the groupPreUpdate, here is the scenario:



We want to check if the groupName has restricted word in it on both Insert and Update operations. Insert is fine, but we are having issue with the Update operation as it is getting only the old value but not the new value.



  If the existing group name is "TestGroup" and it being updated to "TestGroupUpdated"


In the below method when we print the value of the group name we are getting "TestGroup" while we are expecting the new value "TestGroupUpdated"


public void groupPreUpdate(HooksContext hooksContext, HooksGroupBean preUpdateBean) { Group group = preUpdateBean.getGroup(); String name = StringUtils.defaultString(group.getName()); } }


Please let us know, how we can get the new value for the group Name.
