Is this what you had in mind?



Folders, groups, attributeDefs and attributeDefNames will all have similar truncation indicators. Clicking on the "(More xxxxx)" will open up the parent folder so that you can see the full list of items in the right pane.


There is a fix in 2.5 for this. Did you also want a 2.4 patch for this?

We ran into this too. There is a configurable parameter to extend the list longer, here’s what we did from


uiV2.treeStemsOnIndexPage = 100

uiV2.treeGroupsOnIndexPage = 200


But I do like the idea of having a visual cue that the list is being truncated.

Hi Dominique,


I think it's a reasonable request and one worth putting a JIRA in for.  I've gone back and forth on this and think that the simple ellipsis with the same link address as the folder itself is probably best.

since migration to Grouper 2.4.0 some users are disconcerted because when they use the "Browse folders" pane and navigate by expanding the folder hierarchy they cannot see all their groups.
I found out that lists in that pane are limited to 30 objects maximum for a maximum total of a 100
(by the way is there another description of this in the Help or the wiki?)

What disconcerts some users is that there is no visual clue that the list is incomplete,
and also that in other environments (e.g. file systems) they are used to be able to navigate down to any object in the hierarchical view.
Of course there are other ways to navigate to groups, but that's the feedback we received.

Is it possible to indicate that the list is truncated (for example a "..." marker or fading/grayed end of list),
or even to enlarge the list to more objects (e.g. clickable "see more" marker)?
