Requesting access to view EventLogging data for Tim WMDE
Closed, ResolvedPublic



as an employee of WMDE, I would like to request access to view EventLogging data in order for us to analyze our banner / fundraising campaigns.

I have had a look at the Access Groups but I am unsure which group is the appropriate one, please advise on this.

Please let me know what pieces of information you need for this.

Groups requested: researchers & analytics-users per T202072#4514570

SRE Clinic Duty Checklist for Access Requests

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 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.

Event Timeline


You need to (digitally) sign the NDA, please write to Rachel Stallman <> (@RStallman-legalteam ) and she'll prepare it for you. This also needs to be signed off by your manager at WMDE.

I am assuming your request is for the group called "analytics-wmde" but it's purely based on the existing members and description:

  description: Group of WMDE analytics users
  gid: 784
  members: [addshore, goransm]
  privileges: ['ALL = (analytics-wmde) NOPASSWD: ALL']

Does that seem right, is what you want the same access that the 2 users above have now? cc: @Addshore

Followed up in T202072#4510001, lets have the group conversation there.

We have an NDA on file for Tim Fabian Eulitz :)

Hi @Tim_WMDE we'll need an SSH key from you. Could you create one and paste it here?

Also, could you read and sign L3 unless you already have in the past? Thanks

Hey @Dzahn, here you go:

L3 is signed as well.
