2 2 Contents Grouper Shell (GSH) Configuring the Grouper API Import / Export

3 3 Grouper Shell (GSH) - Introduction Grouper Shell (GSH) is command line interface to Grouper Based on BeanShell Start with a shell script (unix/mac) or batch file (win)

4 4 Grouper Shell (GSH) - Intro (continued) Can run from the unzipped API tarball, or a UI or WS build from a webapp (WEB-INF/bin/gsh) GSH is all powerful - anyone with access to GSH can act as an admin (unlike the UI or WS) Document on wiki (google: Grouper GSH)Document on wiki

5 5 Grouper Shell (GSH) - Registry commands Generally you need to start with root session gsh 0% grouperSession = GrouperSession.startRootSession(); Can run Java command: gsh 1% new GroupSave(grouperSession).assignName("stem1:a").assignCreateParentStemsIfNotExist(true).save(); Can run built-in GSH command gsh 2% addGroup("stem1", "b", "Group b"); Note: commands must be on one line

6 6 Grouper Shell (GSH) - utilities Can get a list of commands gsh 3% help(); History of recent commands gsh 4% history() Grouper utilities, e.g. fix missing metadata gsh 5% new edu.internet2.middleware.grouper.misc.AddMissingGroupSets().addAllMissingGroupSets(); gsh 6% exit

7 7 Grouper Shell (GSH) - run from file Non-interactive mode, put commands in file e.g. gshCommands.txt Invoke by calling GSH with the argument of the filename c:\mchyzer\grouper\v2_1\ grouper\bin>gsh C:\mchyzer\ grouper\docs\201204\ gshCommands.txt

8 8 Configuring the Grouper API Config files are read from the default package on classpath In the API, this is the "conf" dir In the UI/WS the dir is WEB-INF/classes

9 9 Grouper API config files grouper.properties - main config file grouper.hibernate.properties - DB config grouper-loader.properties - Loader config sources.xml - Subject API config log4j.properties - Logging config ehcache.xml - Cache config

10 10 Grouper API configuration information Config changes require a restart of the JVM Each config file has an example config file which lists documentation and all of the available config options Read through the example files to see what is available

11 11 grouper.properties config example Do not make groups publicly viewable and readable by default groups.create.grant.all.read = false groups.create.grant.all.view = false Some properties are lists with indexes db.change.allow.user.1=grouper1 db.change.allow.url.1=jdbc:mysql://lo calhost:3306/grouper1

12 12 Grouper import/export Grouper can export the registry to XML Note: not 100% of the registry is exported as of April 2012 e.g. point in time auditing, external subjects Can export part of the registry by folder

13 13 Grouper import/export (continued) UUIDs are exported and used if inserting into a new system XML files are streamed in and out for efficient memory use Can import to new or existing registry

14 14 Grouper import/export help Get help with import or export, issue the command with no arguments c:\grouper\bin>gsh -xmlexport c:\grouper\bin>gsh -xmlimport

15 15 Grouper export/import example Export gsh -xmlexport -includeComments c:/temp/grouperRegistry.xml Import gsh -xmlimport -recordReport c:/temp/grouperRegistry.xml
