Are you seeing the "Act as admin/Act as self" drop down control in the top right of the page? If so, then you are logged in as a user with admin rights. When you're logged in as an admin you should see a relatively short list of options on the left navigation pane (Explore, Search, etc…). 

If you're logged in as a regular user, or acting as yourself using the "act as…" option in the UI, then you'll see additional options in the left sidebar for managing the things that you have access to within grouper. These don't show up for admin users because presumably they have access to everything within the UI.

So I've got my initial grouper api and ui setup going... even managed to shibbolize the ui to where I'm logging in and being mapped to a grouper subject using eppn (ie, )... but of course I'm winding up as a normal user in an otherwise empty grouper install. that leaves me next to figure out how to turn my only subject into an admin user. from the documentation, so far I've edit to:

configuration.autocreate.system.groups = true
groups.wheel.use = true = etc:sysadmingroup

I've verified the etc:sysadmingroup is created and my subject () is indeed a member of it. I also see this reflected when I log into the UI. However, when I log into the UI, i don't see to have any special mojo to create groups or folders/stems in the root. from here, i'm not really sure where to go. I thought it was as merely adding a just to the group named in as the wheel group? am I having problems because my grouper subject () is not named the same as my linux user acct who's in the linux system's wheel group (rwgorrel)? where do i need to go to from here in getting my subject () setup as a full blown grouper admin?
