Can you supply further details of the operation, the execution environment, and exactly how it was conducted? That does sound absurdly slow, and far off from my own experience.

I just added external provisioning for all the base groups we might want to
use in composite operations. It took almost 48 hours. This is ridiculous. My
home-grown group management can populate from empty in about four hours. My
nightly update only does adds/removes and so runs very quickly.

I can obviously write similar update code, but really, what all is going on
that adding 20,000 subjects takes so long? Is a table not indexed on some
attribute, or are you creating new subject records from the JNDI data in my
subject configs?

Inquiring minds want to know (fnord).

You should be able to use the XML import/export tool for this purpose.
See <>.

It'd be good to include an example of how to "prune & graft", like
you're wanting to do, in that wiki page.

can groups or stems be moved to somewhere else in the group hierarchy?
Looking at the database I can't think of any technical reason why this
wouldn't be possible, unless I'm overlooking something.
