Use GSH to create a :all group with the :students and :instructors groups as members?

I’ve run into a mental block in designing my groups.


I have created 2 Grouper Loader jobs using SQL_GROUP_LIST. One creates groups for each course section with students as members. The other creates groups for each course section with instructors as members. Both run SQL against our PeopleSoft SIS.


I need a group for each course section that includes both instructors and students. I see 2 ways to accomplish this, one I know I can make work.


The easiest thing to do would be create a third  SQL_GROUP_LIST using SQL that returns both instructors and students in one query.


But I was wondering if I might be better of creating  Grouper Loader job that executes a query against the Grouper DB (GSA) the returns the members of the groups I created above.


I didn’t see any way to leverage composite groups to achieve my goal. And I didn’t see a way to leverage include groups either.


Any thoughts or opinions invited.
