In their work on updating the portals julien and jan will need to be able to query out data about the event logging they are doing, and will additionally need access to the webrequests table in hive to do other exploration related to requests against the portals.
Neither of them currently has shell access to prod, so that will need to be done as well.
Hive access is gated on the analytics-privatedata-users group in puppet. i'm not sure about stat1002 for the eventlogging access. I think its the researchers group.
