InCommon Grouper Training
June 18-19, 2019
8:00 am – 5:00 pm (CDT)
University of Wisconsin, Madison

Registration is Open!

This two-day session will focus on the InCommon Trusted Access Platform packaged Grouper software (formerly known as TIER) — including installation and configuration with a mix of lecture, hands-on training, and discussion. The target audience for this workshop is anyone interested in implementing access governance the “InCommon way”, and includes novices and folks who already have some Grouper experience (although knowledge of identity management concepts and related implementation experience is strongly recommended).

The modules start with Grouper basics and progress through new Grouper features, access governance, Grouper security model, and Grouper administration. The session culminates in with an access governance practicum that incorporates the InCommon Trusted Access Platform suite of components and provides a “full IAM stack” experience.

Thinking about modernizing your operations? This is the right place. This is an opportunity to learn about the DevOps approach to managing your development and operations and how you can use the Docker containerized version of the software to streamline your work load. All of the training is done in a virtual machine (VM) environment, so you won’t need to know the details about containers.
