  • Will move on to try web services and apply same strategy


Grouper Startup Time Issues

Penn has seen Grouper startup issues related to GSH

  • War file takes a while

Tomcat scans JARS for context  on startup, can takes time

Shib project has moved to Jetty

There are ways to get around the Tomcat issue, see Shib documentation


In future, someone should research Grouper startup time issues and make recommendations

[AI] (Chris) add to roadmap the need to research Grouper startup time issues and make recommendations

Bert – PSPNG

[AI] Chris get back to Bert regarding AD connection issues

  • Fixing JIRAs in  2.3 branch

  • Will create a jumbo patch for those JIRAs , patch should be ready within a few days
    Issue:

  • Now we bundle LDAP changes for PSP NG

  • Harder to track back to an individual event if something fails

  • Need to go into a recovery mode; this is a messy approach

  • Suggestions:

    • that on member deletion we can disable the optimization

    • Or on a member delete, read from Grouper or LDAP if that’s last member and if yes, potentially delete the group

  • Bert will try a few approaches and see what works


Java 6 and Java 7 issues - Bert will do testing

Q: in point in time group, is there a way to get index mapped to ID Index?

A: Shilen: no


Q: Do we need ID Index in change log?

A: Yes that would be helpful.


[AI] (Bert) create a JIRA for putting ID Index in change log  DONE

Issue roundup

MIsagh -

Grouper 2.3 latest patch and Internet Explorer 11 (on a windows 7 machine) cannot render the Grouper UI webpage. There are Java script issues. Misagh tried turning on compatibility mode and could not solve the issue. There were some pending windows updates that may have had an impact, not sure.
