WMF LDAP group access for pivot.wikimedia.org
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Hey all

I was wondering if it's possible to get WMF LDAP group access for pivot.wikimedia.org. At fundraising, we've been discussing how great it would be if we had more analytics data to deliver banners more effectively. I've landed here via Nirzar and Dan Andreescu.

Thanks for your help.

I just checked this and yea pivot.wikimedia.org is using LDAP auth and one of the groups "wmf" or "nda" are enough to be granted access. Adding you to "wmf" isn't a problem and should happen at onboarding, if you are a WMF employee.

Hi Robin @schoenbaechler , you have been added to the relavant group. You should be able to login now, using your wikitech.wikimedia.org / LDAP user. Let us know if any unexpected problems. Cheers, Daniel
