The TIER Access Governance (201) builds on Grouper Basics and explores the access governance approach described in the Grouper Deployment Guide. After completing Grouper 201, the student will have an understanding of how use Grouper primitives to achieve access governance capabilities, and be able to translate natural language policy into digital policy.


In the documentation, references will be made to Grouper groups and folders (stems). These references will sometimes take the form of a complete path to the referenced object, such as app:vpn:ref:ad_hoc. Other times, the references will be relative to the current context under discussion. For example, when referring to the same application-specific reference group for the VPN service, the notation …:ref:ad_hoc may be used to indicate that a portion of the full path has been omitted.
