Can't tell what's happening here, don't know that error message. Might be a bug, blair will need to check it out upon return in 2 days.

That's a message from my new "" contrib item. The method in question starts around line 122:

private static boolean _grantPriv()

The line within _grantPriv that attempts to set the naming privilege is:

Grouper.naming().grant(s, g, m, priv)

Where s is session, g is the group, m is the member, and priv is the privilege ("STEM" or "CREATE")

"g" is supposed to be set by this line:

GrouperGroup g = GrouperGroup.load(s, stem, extn)
_verbose( stem + ":" + extn + " is " + g)

The second line generates the "wisc:doit:arch is null " message above.

So since "g" is null, the code doesn't attempt to call Grouper.naming().grant, but instead prints the "Failed...." message above.

It makes sense that there isn't really a "group" wisc:doit:arch to be loaded since that's just a naming stem. I'm just not sure what to do instead. I'm having great fun learning a bit about Grouper guts, though.
