Hey @Ramsey-WMF, Can I have LDAP usernames of the team members you want access for?

Oh! I seem to have missed the alert that I got tagged in this ticket. Here are the LDAP usernames @Ladsgroup requested:


All of them are admin in wikidata-federated project now. that project includes federated-commons.eqiad.wmflabs ( and federated-wikidata.eqiad.wmflabs (

Hi, @Ladsgroup .

Thanks again for your assistance. Unfortunately it seems we still have a couple issues. I had the guys attempt to login today and we had the following problems:

Cormac (Cparle) can't log in at all.

Matthias and Mark can log in but don't have admin status.

Could you look into those issues at your earliest convenience? Or, if you think we're doing something wrong, please let us know that too :)

Thanks again for all your help!

Small update: just talked to @Ladsgroup -- he assigned admin status to everyone. There may be a deeper problem going on, he will check into it.

This is the list of the admins and users that I added in November 6:

As you see, all of them should have admin rights and be able to log in, the nodes are federated-commons.eqiad.wmflabs and federated-wikidata.eqiad.wmflabs. They exist in wikidata-federation project.

Either 1- The LDAP usernames is wrong, 2- Something is wrong in labs. Please let me know if 1 is happening, so I add the correct usernames and if 2 is happening we need to talk to Andrew or other people in the cloud team.

Oh, I see. I was totally misunderstanding what was supposed to be happening here. If labs shows us as admins, that's fine. I was looking at the admin list on-wiki like an idiot. Sorry about that! This should be sufficient.

Thanks, everyone! (particularly Amir for being very helpful)
