I should have been more clear. Right now we use


We are considering using 'db' and 'sources'. The wiki page

"Note that the same sources.xml settings that configure the
Grouper startup settings will apply here as well. i.e. you
can skip a source, or set the ID to search for."

What is the syntax to "skip a source"?

It would also be convienent if there was a diagnosticType
option for just the loader jobs, or even more useful to check
for a successful run of a particular loader job.

Can that enhancement be added to the roadmap?
