Here is some correspondence between myself and Tom Barton from when I was testing release 0.6.  The question was how to configure things so that when I was logged in as user jv11, I could begin to create stems/groups.

I am wondering if things have changed for 0.9.  I'm thinking that I shouldn't have to log in as GrouperSystem anymore?

You need to make a delegation of privilege to jv11. To do so, first login as GrouperSystem and delegate to jv11 some privilege. For example, make a top level stem called 'joytest' and assign jv11 STEM privilege for it. Close your browser and log back in as jv11. You can now give yourself CREATE priv in 'joytest' and begin creating/editing groups & substems and groups in substems, etc.

We have an instance of the grouper ui now hooked up to our  authentication system, so that when I go to our grouper website, I am  recognized as "jv11".  I am wondering now how to give myself (and  others) the privileges needed to create stems and groups etc. (i.e.  like the GrouperSystem user).
 From reading the docs, it looks like I maybe need to make jv11 a  member of the grouperCreator group?  Would I use the contributed  groupmgr program to do that?
Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction :)
