Grouper 2.2.2


Goal is to release Grouper 2.2.2. prior to the 2015 Technology  Exchange (early Oct.)

This release incorporates about 40 patches. as listed on the Grouper Release Notes page.


Goal: release of Grouper 2.2.2 by Wed. Sept. 23

Chris working on status servlet.

It has problems when loader jobs not configured correctly

Patch dependencies can get complex

Don’t want to maintain multiple versions in the demo server

Upgrade to Grouper 2.2.2. will be low-risk

This will benefit maven developers & users


Q: Will there be a path from 2.1 to 2.2.2?

A: Yes


Strategy after release of 2.2.2

The Grouper team has been quite responsive to requests for enhancements and has created multiple patches.

Moving forward, we need to spend less time on enhancements and patches

and focus the work on Grouper 2.3

Grouper Roadmap

Vivek interested in working on Elastic search

Jim has worked on this

Chris: live privileges would need to be taken into account while working on elastic privileges

Jim: agreed that privileges and effective memberships are complex when looking at elastic search


[AI] (Chris and Vivek) will discuss items on the Grouper Roadmap for Vivek to work on, perhaps JDK?
