The University is currently running an outdated version of Grouper (v.2.3) and as part of compliance this needs to be upgraded to the latest stable instance (v2.5 or higher).
Grouper was last upgraded in 2017/2018 to version 2.3.0. At that time the PSP component was not upgraded to PSPNG due to compatibility and technical issues. These works are to upgrade Grouper to the latest version 2.5 (Docker- based) or latest stable patched version (currently at least V2.5.0). This will allow us to take advantage of the latest patches / security, review any additional functionality and new UI for all functions, including the possibly of allowing us to be able to take advantage of the ability to connect with AD.
PSPNG configuration is complex, so testing and deployment will require a dedicated project involving resource from IS Apps Development Services along with support from both ITI Enterprise Windows and UNIX teams. Version 2.3.0 (released April 2016) ceased to be supported when Version 2.6 was released (September 2021).
It is noted that IDM / Grouper are systems that are currently under review as part of the IDAM / MFA project and any works / effort on this Project need to be appropriately determined / actioned on that basis.
