Thanks, Chris. I would appreciate a definitive answer. I thought I saw a result code something like “added_exists” when I was assigning admin privileges to a test group that I had been creating and deleting through successive tests. I haven’t seen it since, but was wondering if privileges or memberships could be left in database tables for a group that no longer exists, and then if a group by the same name was subsequently created, those privileges and memberships would attach to it, without the creator knowing.

My understanding is that all memberships and privileges will be deleted automatically.  The only things that would hold it up are if the user (or actAs user) doesn’t have admin privileges on the group, or if the group is used as a factor in another composite group.


I can do a quick proof of concept demonstrating this with the client, do you need this?

When a group is deleted using the GrouperClient 1.4.2 groupDeleteWs method, are all of the privileges and memberships associated with the group deleted automatically, or do they have to be explicitly deleted before deleting the group? Thanks.
