Comments from the community to be considered

  • I think user and principal are misleading param names; user is a collection of identities so maybe identity would be better. I'm not sure how the term principal is used outside the java APIs, but I would thing identiyType or idType would make this more clear. The idea at the bottom of p9 is worth exploring... identity=x509:?? -- PatrickDowler - 2018-11-06

  • Why the fixed /gms part of he path? Just to give the group uri scheme some recognisability? We could also go vospace style , eg gms://authority/path?group to get that but with simpler extraction if the resource ID... I think path restriction will rub people the wrong way. It really means it is hard to embed gms capabilities into other existing services where you already chose the resource id -- PatrickDowler - 2018-11-06
    • +1 for me on the gms:// schema solution. It leaves the local part of the IVOID (URI) opaque as it should and free-to-manage by the providers. -- MarcoMolinaro - 2018-11-07
