If you have the orgs defined in a database, including memberships, the
Grouper loader can keep them in sync with groups in Grouper... so I think
that is different than the Org maintenance / system of record application...

Subject: [grouper-users] organization registry in Grouper?

At a recent event it was mentioned by someone who is involved with Kuali
Rice that there is an investigation happening into a prospective new Rice
component that would be called "Kuali Organization Management" (KOM). As
with most other things Kuali, the current notion is to start with an
existing university-developed system and expand on it. In this case that
system is from Michigan State University, known there as "Organization of
Interest". Here is an entry point for info about that system:

The descriptions are understandably MSU-local (old and new org codes, etc)
but I think people can get the general idea of scope and function:
management of entries for organizations, relationships among them
(hierarchical and otherwise), interesting business-related attributes,
etc. Typical registry stuff.

At that above-mentioned event, a knowledgable person said: gee, Grouper
can do all those things. How about that, we all said. Very cool.

As I look through Grouper docs, ie the stuff in

I'm not seeing anything obvious about using Grouper for this
functionality. Perhaps I missed something.

So my questions are:

Are there docs on using Grouper for an org registry service?

Is any Grouper site out there actually doing this, or planning to?
