Ok, yes, I think it is appropriate, and we do this at Penn J


Here is the doc on hierarchies with Grouper loader, and I added a lot of info about how we do this at Penn as an example:


Let me know how it goes J

Hi Chris,


Here is the use case:  We have a payroll system at the University that contains an hierarchical structure ( organization, division, sub- division, department ).  We want to feed this data into grouper automatically creating the groups analogous to the structure in the payroll database.  There would be an initial large import, followed by periodic updates as the database changes.   Would Grouper Loader be the appropriate tool?

The loader will load memberships into a group or list of groups based on a query (and you can have multiple grouper loader jobs).


Steps are: make the query, make a group and assign the grouperLoader type, set the attributes.


Let me know if you are loading 1 group or a list of groups from one query, and I can give more specifics.  The hard part is writing the query though, the rest should be easy J

Let’s say I want to configure Grouper Loader to feed Subjects and Groups into the Grouper Repository from an SQL database.  What high-level steps are required?  How do I know which  columns to provide to Grouper when writing the SQL query?
