Is this what and how you’re running it? (This worked for me.)

groovy:000> String principal = "someApp";
===> someApp
groovy:000> String email = null;
===> null
groovy:000> GrouperSession grouperSession = GrouperSession.startRootSession();
===> ed3f25816f4c4383b4af07aa878851a9,'GrouperSystem','application'
groovy:000> addSubject(principal, "application", principal);
===> Subject id: someApp, sourceId: null, name: someApp

I am attempting to follow the docs at the wiki page,
, and following the "add a subject application principal with attributes
(GSH)" example on that page.

When running the example gsh, I am getting the error:
org.codehaus.groovy.control.MultipleCompilationErrorsException: startup
groovysh_parse: 2: unexpected token: principal @ line 2, column 171.
til.toListObject(new Object[]{principal,

My intent is to create an "application" type subject with a login id,
without having to add maintain a record in the main subject source, which is
LDAP directory. Then I want to privilege that subject with access to an
application group/folder area so that the subject can be authenticated via
GrouperClient into grouper-ws.

Any advice on the error, or how to go about it differently is much
