I can work around it right now. The data should probably be cleaned up.
If I needed this feature, though, it would probably be from a database I
couldn't clean up easily, so I would probably want to limit it to just that

Subject: RE: Loader error about missing subject

We've debated this one in the past, and it is currently on our roadmap

The issue was if the subject was not resolvable by mistake then it will be
removed from the group (which might be a mistake). So what I do at Penn is I
have a SQL table of subjects and join my loader SQL's to that so that the
results are always resolvable. (e.g. pre-provisioning wont work until the
subject exists)

Anyways, can you do something like that, or at least in the meantime or is it
important that you get a patch for this? Also, it would be a system-wide
setting right? Not different for different loader jobs?

Subject: [grouper-users] Loader error about missing subject

I have a loader job that pulls from an Oracle DB.
The job failed with an error about a missing subject:

2015-09-22 10:34:55,320: [main] ERROR
GrouperLoaderResultset$Row.getSubject(1399) - - Problem with subjectId:
fisherp, subjectSourceId: ldap, in jobName: lc:ref:role:banner:nonvoters
edu.internet2.middleware.subject.SubjectNotFoundException: No results:
searchSubject filter:(&(uid=%TERM%)(objectclass=person)) searchValue: fisherp

The subject is in fact, *not* in my subject source. However, I would like
Grouper to ignore the missing subjects rather than throw an error and stop
the job.
Is there a simple setting to ignore missing subjects in the loader?
