I have recently installed Grouper 1.5.3 QuickStart.
QuickStart was very easy to install following instructions in README files and it is very helpful for the first look but when it comes to customization it's not that easy to find how to make configuration changes. Detailed recipes for some common configurations would be great.
In my case, I am trying to add one data source (ldap) just to start with. I want to see if I could create groups using the Grouper and feed them into ldap. My next steps would be shibbolizing the Grouper, testing import/export options, the client, possibly adding more data sources.
I have configured Grouper to pick up users from ldap but I would like to create dynamic groups as well, for example, create a group=Staff based on ldap eduPersonPrimaryAffiliation=Staff and after that provision the newly created dynamic group to ldap using ldappc.
Is it possible to do so using the Grouper user interface? Or it works just the other way - creating a dynamic group in ldap first and exporting it (all countless members of the group?) to the Grouper next?
I see people mention having dynamic groups in Grouper but cannot find any information on how to do that. Any hints?

Thank you,
