SciSoft Service Offering

The notes here are primarily for the service providers.

Permission Groups

  • Read-write access to SciSoft is controlled via nfs4 Kerberos groups.
  • Each project or experiment will have their own group.
  • Permissions are set at the top of a directory tree and are granted on a per bundle or per package basis.
  • The group nas-scisoft-f has global read-write permissions.
  • To check the permission group for a bundle:
    • ssh scisoftportal.fnal.gov
    • ls /nasroot/SciSoft/bundles/<your bundle>
    • nfs4_getfacl /nasroot/SciSoft/bundles/<your bundle>
  • To check the permission group for a package:
    • ssh scisoftportal.fnal.gov
    • ls /nasroot/SciSoft/packages/<your package>
    • nfs4_getfacl /nasroot/SciSoft/packages/<your package>
  • At this time, there is no way to check the members of a group short of opening a service desk ticket.
