I'd like to request access for @PEarleyWMF to what I believe will be the restricted group and analytics-privatedata-users (the same that I have). Trust and Safety has had a number of workflows requiring shell access and private analytics logs (hadoop). Many of our workflows (including these ones) have been increasing and the only two people on our team with access are myself and Joe Sutherland. This has caused some major bottleneck issues at times and we want to expand the available people within our team to include other members of the T&S Operations team which I manage as well as Patrick who, as my counterpart manager (on the policy side of T&S) is also a good backup when I'm out and we have sensitive issues come up.
Specifically some of the workflows he needs to be able to do (and I believe needs this access for):
- Run maintenance scripts (mwmaint servers) to:
- To remove 2FA for users who have lost their backup codes (after identity verification)
- To add or reset user email addresses when locked out of their account (again after identity verification)
- To permanently remove illegal images from the servers
- Lookup private information such as user email addresses for legal or T&S investigations (such as urgent threats of harm or court orders).
- Query webserver logs for private information such as IPs which have viewed certain pages (usually court orders)
Patrick has already signed L3. @JanWMF is his manager and I'll have him comment here in support. As always please let me know if any issues or questions.
SRE Clinic Duty Checklist for Access Requests
Most requirements are outlined on https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Requesting_shell_access
This checklist should be used on all access requests to ensure that all steps are covered. This includes expansion to access. Please do not check off items on the list below unless you are in Ops and have confirmed the step.
- - User has signed the L3 Acknowledgement of Wikimedia Server Access Responsibilities Document.
- - User has a valid NDA on file with WMF legal. (This can be checked by Operations via the NDA tracking sheet & is included in all WMF Staff/Contractor hiring.)
- - User has provided the following: wikitech username, preferred shell username, email address, and full reasoning for access (including what commands and/or tasks they expect to perform.
- - User has provided a public SSH key. This ssh key pair should only be used for WMF cluster access, and not share with any other service (this includes not sharing with WMCS access, no shared keys.)
- - access request (or expansion) has sign off of WMF sponsor/manager (sponser for volunteers, manager for wmf staff)
- - non-sudo requests: 3 business day wait must pass with no objections being noted on the task
- - Patchset for access request
