Hi Dave,

Thank you for your quick reply. Just to confirm. 

In psp-resolver I want to add:

<!-- The value of the group "displayName" attribute is the group displayName. -->
    <resolver:Dependency ref="GroupDataConnector" />
    <resolver:Dependency ref="UpdateGroupDisplayNameChangeLogDataConnector" />

 <!-- Returns change log attributes representing the changing of a group's description. -->
    <!-- The AND filter matches both child filters. -->
    <grouper:Filter xsi:type="grouper:AND">
      <!-- The ChangeLogEntry filter matches change log entries with the given category and action. -->
        action="updateGroup" />
      <!-- The ChangeLogExactAttribute filter matches change log entries with the given attribute and value. -->
        value="displayName" />

And in psp.xml

I add:

   <!-- The ldap group "displayName" attribute. -->
      ref="groupDisplayName" />

Thank you,

Hi Jeff,

In the psp-resolver.xml you would define the displayName attribute just like the name ones.  Then in the psp.xml in the <pso id="group"> tag you'd add another <attribute> element which references the displayName attribute.

<attribute name="displayName" ref="groupDisplayName" />

Assuming in psp-resolver you defined the displayName as groupDisplayName.

I would like possibly add another attribute to the ones that PSP provisions in LDAP. For example, along with the Grouper "name" being used for the LDAP group cn, I'd like to have the Grouper displayName attribute provisioned as an LDAP displayName. I see in the documentation that I can easily switch from using Grouper "name" to displayName, but I'd like to add the displayName as an extra attribute. If possible, what would I need to add to the psp-resolver.xml?
