At Brown we're using what comes with Grouper. There are three parts to it, the external subject source, the invitation mechanism, and web services support for managing external users. The web services support is less than a year old (https://bugs.internet2.edu/jira/browse/GRP-1353). We started out using the subject source and invitation mechanism. We're in the process of switching from the invitation mechanism to our own web app for adding external users, in order to provide a better, more integrated user experience. Instead of using the built-in invitation mechanism, we'll use the web services support. We also have provisioning set up to provision the external users in Grouper to LDAP, where they have their own OU.
We've noted that in our IDM infrastructure, Grouper is not the ideal place for our external subject source. In our case, the general approach is to use OIM to manage people, and Grouper to manage groups. However, the Grouper external subject source is working well for us, and it's not a high priority to replace it.

For those using external subjects with grouper... are you using the stuff that comes with grouper (https://spaces.internet2.edu/display/Grouper/Grouper+external+subjects), something that came with your IDM, or something you implemented in your IDM?
