Create a local entity via the Lite UI “create groups” screen:



If you have this set in = etc:webServiceGroup


Then add the local entity to the group:



Make sure the local entity can READ or whatever the WS business use case is



For some reason in tomcat-users I think you cant have a colon in the name (or maybe basic-auth? Or bug in grouper client?)  so you can use the local entity uuid:


Add the user to basic auth (in my case tomcat-users.xml)


  <user password="DontUseThisPa55" roles="grouper_user" username="293f6a37c792475e838515842200f5eb"/>


Use it from the client:


# url of web service, should include everything up to the first resource to access

# e.g.

# e.g.

grouperClient.webService.url = "http://localhost:8091/grouperWs/servicesRest


# kerberos principal used to connect to web service

grouperClient.webService.login = 293f6a37c792475e838515842200f5eb


# password for shared secret authentication to web service

# or you can put a filename with an encrypted password

grouperClient.webService.password = DontUseThisPa55

Try creating a local entity in grouper in a folder, the username is the fully qualified system name (ID in UI).  Set a user/pass in basic auth, and login using that.  If you need a more clear example let me know :)

Subject: [grouper-users] Application subjects



    I am in the process of setting up Grouper.  Is there a preferred way to setup application subjects?  Specifically we need a subject for a portal user that will update groups and read groups.
