Maybe someone has an example of this, or a better idea, but for one time use
you could use a generated GSH script (from whatever programming language you
want, or parse ldif or something). I.e. if you can dump the data from ldap
into a GSH script somehow...

First declare a session:

grouperSession = GrouperSession.startRootSession();

then create each group:


then add members:

addMember("folder1:folder2:group1", "subjectIdentifier1");
addMember("folder1:folder2:group1", "subjectIdentifier2");
addMember("folder1:folder2:group2", "subjectIdentifier1");

Once all that stuff is in one file, run in gsh:

./ myScriptFile.script

If you need an example let us know and maybe someone could make one... let us
know which type of directory you have and a description of the structure.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I am currently using 1.6.2.

By "sync-up" I mean that generally I would like to take all of my existing
LDAP groups and import them into Grouper. Ideally, once I had this data in
Grouper, I could then manage those groups in Grouper, provision changes to
LDAP, and yes, potentially make this the system of record.
