I dont know exactly what you are asking, but I think the answer is yes :)

Your query results can be groups as members... you could have multiple
queries running after one another to cascade correctly. We do this at Penn.
If you want to give a more detailed example I could explain a little better

Subject: [grouper-users] automagically creating group from stem node

I probably have all the terminology wrong here but...

my question, put right up front, is .... when provisioning a bunch of
stems+groups and members(hips) with the loader is there a way to make
the stem-nodes (folders?) be groups with indirect members made from
the groups' members below that node in the (folder/group/stem)



That returns a nice json list of members of a leaf node which is a
group defined via the loader job as
(that is Section A01 of the Courseoffering AHI 001B for the first term of

But I assumed that the intermediate folders would also be addressable
and members(hips) inherited, maybe by throwing some switch somewhere

So logically 'cms:course:section:AHI:001B' might contain all the
members of all the sections in all a terms for AHI 001B ... instead
this returns a groupNotFound... the intermediate 'folder' doesn't seem
to be addressable:


(actually expected 'members' to return 0 and 'memberships' to return a
sum of the groups below as indirect members)
