We're using a provisioning model with Grouper where a custom change log consumer sends messages to endpoints for (nearly) real-time provisioning. For example, we have an endpoint for Google that will update Google group membership in response to messages for a corresponding Grouper group. At this point we're starting to work on going beyond provisioning membership. We're using group attributes to provision other information about a target group. For example, we have a group attribute googleGroupName that specifies the name for the corresponding Google group. When one of those attributes is added, deleted, or changed, we'd like to send a corresponding message to the endpoint. There are change log events for addAttributeAssignValue and deleteAttributeAssignValue. But when an attribute value is changed, I'd like to send the endpoints an update message with the old and new values. I don't seen any change log event for that purpose, and when I make a change, I get a delete event followed by a separate add event. Could Grouper be enhanced to include the option of generating a single update event, instead of separate add and delete events? That would allow us to use a straightforward implementation, instead of trying to determine when add and delete events actually represent an update.
