Thank you again.
Are the methods for these objects detailed in the docs anywhere?
I didn't see any notes on them, but then again, I'm wiki-deficient.

Or do I need to pick though the code?

Subject: [grouper-users] Way to update subjects via GSH

Hello everybody.

I've been bulk loading users (subjects?) from a flat file with gsh
Basically I've been using the addSubject command; and the flat-file
datafeed I've been using has a default value of 'NA' for users whose
names are not provided.

So a lot of the adds look something like this:


Now I have an updated datafeed with updated user names, so I can replace
the "NA" with a real value.

Is there a way I can bulk update the subjects I initially created with a
name value of "NA"?

I may be missing something in the documentation, but i'm not seeing a
way to do this via gsh...?

Any help would be much appreciated.
