You can use a rule to control this, we do this at penn


But it is at a stem level.  Are all your google groups and list serv groups in their own stems perchance?  J


Otherwise I bet you could do this with a hook.  Let me know if you need help (and very clearly explain what you need)

Subject: [grouper-users] external subjects


Does anyone have experience managing external subjects they can share with us?  We store external subjects in an Oracle database and we have a source adapter that allows Grouper to read from that database.  This allows Grouper users to add external subjects to a group but we have no way to create new external subjects from the Grouper UI.  We are primarily interested in using external subjects for mailing list groups but we are also implementing Google groups for document sharing (these are separate from our mailing list groups) and we would like to use external subjects in Google groups as well.  We would like to restrict access to external subjects so they can only be added to mailing list groups and Google groups, not added to other Grouper groups.
