Nudging this (or should I create a Jira ticket?):

We are interested in using the loader failsafe on a per-group basis.

Before I consider rolling my own, has anyone else (as hinted in the archives) done anything in this direction ?

Hello Grouper users,

I'm new to Grouper, having recently joined the IAM team at Oregon State, and I'm using a recent loader issue to orient myself to the project:

Without warning, an SQL view was altered (incorrectly) such that the loader got zero results back from its query, and it (correctly) began unloading the grouper group membership.

I am aware of Fail-safe-1 and Fail-safe-2*; these are mostly what I think we need, but they both seem to work globally (applied to all loader jobs), whereas we would like to configure failsafe params per-job in order to accommodate the loading of groups with naturally volatile membership.

While I've found related threads in the archives of this list** and the grouper-dev list*** , the only mention I could find of this particular use-case, 'per-group failsafe', is in meeting notes from May 6, 2015:

Add decoration to loader group to make failsafe a per-group setting. Best to do as grouper attribute rather than loader config element. Or maybe config UI magic that can accomplish the same. Chris is communicating with Carl W @ Layfayette about what’s needed exactly.****

Since I've not been able to find any follow-up to this in the list or in the wiki, I'm here to ask:

has this been done ?
and if not, does anyone have a thought as to how this could be done?
