Yes, you will have to put the grouper jars and dependencies into the shibboleth IdP. Generally this is done by putting them into $SHIB_DISTRIBUTION/lib so when you run the install script they go into /opt/shibboleth-idp/lib. I have given myself the task of writing a step-by-step howto https://bugs.internet2.edu/jira/browse/GRP-952. However, I should note, most people do not integrate with grouper in this fashion. Generally folks will either push group membership information to LDAP/AD where Shibboleth will grab it along with the other attributes it grabs (https://spaces.internet2.edu/display/Grouper/Exposing+Groups+Through+Shibboleth). Alternately, they will use the RDBMS Connector and query the grouper database via it's various views: https://spaces.internet2.edu/display/Grouper/Grouper+SQL+interface

Andrea,I am forwarding your email to the Grouper-users list, as this is the best way to get Grouper support.Thank you,Emily
Emily,sorry for my email, I'm writing because I'm trying to configure an IdP to release Grouper attributes but I'm having problems.I have seen your name as a contributor to the page:
which I am using as a reference.
The problem I'm having is about how I can integrate grouper-shib inside a Shibboleth IdP.If I understand correctly, what I see in that page is regarding how I have to configure the attribute-resolver.xml page. The problem, however, is that I think I have to provied grouper jars to the IdP webapp.
How can I do that?
Is there a place where I can find a step-by-step guide about how to install an IdP providing Grouper attributes from scratch?
Thanks for your answer!
