Thanks for the response Chris! I did realize that the changeLogEntry table is being populated by the super Group (overall group) and our custom changeLogConsumer is actually picking up the membership information.

There is a changeLogEntry(Temp) record for the addition of a group to another group (see below), but you are expecting multiple entries for all the groups that the parent group is in, right?


Did you write the change log consumer?  You can run a query with the Grouper API to find the group sets that the membership change affects (which is what you want).  If you want to go down this path, we can help you write that Java API call…

Hi All,

I understand that an easy way to create a Group of groups is to add them as members to that particular group. In this case these are no entries created in the membership  and changeLogEntryTemp tables.

We use the chaneLogEntryConsumer extensions to provision groups to our directory, so in this case the group of groups would not be provisioned as an attribute to each and every member of all the included groups. From my understanding this super group can be accessed only by using the grouper web service, is there a way we can actually provision this super group to the Directory?
