Hi Chris,

So I've got a SQL loader job that loads courses into Grouper, pretty straight-forward stuff. I need to populate some additional attributes on the generated/loaded groups. Could be anything beyond the standard group fields (name, description and membership). Things like meeting location, and internal sequence number, course begin/end date, etc... Ideally, I'd like those (KNG123, 999122, 01-Aug-2015, 10-Dec-2015),  to be assigned on the ACCT101-10 group that was created by the courses SQL loader. This info could be used at a later time by hooks, web services, etc.

My Google-Fu is failing me. I'm looking for a resource that shows setting group attribute's (new attribute framework) name/value with info coming from a SQL Loader job. Is it possible? If not and assuming I can derive from the group name, how about rules? I don't see anything in those docs that pertains to setting attributes/values with those? Will I need to use a hook?
