We have been presented with a business need and I’m not sure the best way to resolve it. I would appreciate it if you would be willing to help me brainstorm/consider alternate approaches. I will add that we are new to Grouper and so apologies in advance if this is a trivial problem.


We have primarily been working with Grouper to manage LDAP groups in our Active Directory. As we start to consider expanded use cases, we have an application that needs to be notified when a calculated group’s membership changes. Reviewing the docs, there seems to be at least two options: writing a custom grouper hook and creating a worker process that monitors the changelog. We also have a third option in this case: write a separate process that triggers on an update to the LDAP group membership.


For those of you who are more experienced -- do any of these jump out as the “right answer”? I’m tempted to write a process to watch the change log because it seems architecturally easiest, but I would appreciate learning from this group’s collective experience.
