To understand correctly you want to have a Grouper Group which the members
are users and/or groups from the ldap ?

I'm not sure if "<type>person</type>" does anything

What I would check is that your LDAP groups have subject ID with this part
(maybe CN in your case) :

And that the searches have filters that can see groups, something like :



If I'm not clear we can always talk in French if you prefer ;~)

Objet : Re: [grouper-users] LDAP groups in sources.xml


I want to reference a group which exists in LDAP as a group in grouper
without to sync with loader LDAP. In sources.xml, with <type>person</type>, a
LDAP group is taken such a member, not a group with his own members, that's
the problem. I thought <type>group</type> could solve this with a direct
connection to ou=groups
