YMMV: But this might help for a high level discussion:

                I don’t know enough about “SCIM” to know if the Grouper SCIM server ( SCIM version?) will work for this or not.



There does appear to be a java based sdk for Glip.




                You would likely be using the SDK option for writing #5 below. ( Java coding required. Subject to your findings for #4, and “GLIP” data model/processes too. )

Im not aware that it directly integrates.


  1. Verify how the integration to glip would be done.  Is using their WS API the best way?  Or can they read SAML or SCIM or something?
  2. Get a service account that can call web services in your glip account (assuming WS)
  3. Do a Java POC and see that you can list groups, list users, list memberships in a group, add/remove member, add/remove group
  4. Verify that you want all groups in glip managed by Grouper
  5. Integrate the Java calls with a harness like our other integrations (e.g. box or duo or remedy)
  6. Run that as a change log consumer or unix process with messaging

Hi Chris,


I'm not proficient in coding and was tasked to document the technical requirements in order to take a group of Users in Grouper to create a Glip team (similar to Slack)


If you have time can you provide some high level information such as Grouper will integrate directly with Glip or would we need to install middleware?


Thank you

Do you have resources to create the integration?  i.e. could you write some java methods interact with glip: that list groups in glip, list users in glip, list memberships of a group, add/remove member, add/remove group?


If you get that we can hook that up to a change log consumer and a scheduled full sync.


If you want to discuss over the phone please let me know.  Anyone else interested in this?

I'm searching for information on how to integrate Grouper to RingCentral GLIP.  RingCentral is our Cloud based UC provider.  RingCentral GLIP is equivalent to Slack.  Could you provide information on how to build an API between Grouper and RingCentral or possibly using a SCIM connector.  At this time I'm researching our options to provision a Grouper account in GLIP.


Thank you
