The grouper loader keeps systems of records queries or filters in sync with
grouper groups. Not sure what you mean about integrating with ldap
authentication. Can you explain what you mean in detail?

If you can protect the external user authentication page with oauth (e.g.
from web server or j2ee filter), and put the userId in REMOTE_USER or
somewhere that Grouper can use it, then it will work. Not sure if someone
has an example of this.

Um... I wouldn't do this. Make a wheel group (which is an admin group,
configure in, and add a real user to that group, and
login as the real user/pass, not with GrouperSystem. GrouperSystem is more
for GSH of API...
