@srishakatux hello, can you be a bit more specific about what data you are after? Are you thinking eventlogging?

@Nuria I want to read MySQL credentials from /etc/mysql/conf.d/research-client.cnf via a script that @bd808 wrote to analyze Toolforge/Cloud VPS usage on wikis. So, for that, I need membership in the "researchers" group.

The next step from here would be to use Reportupdater for the datasets that the script generates.

I can confirm that (reading those mysql credentials) is what the researchers group was originally created for.

Hardly any data can be found in mysql, we are deprecating that storage this quarter as we moved all data collection to hadoop a while back. If you point me to the script i can recommend the best path.
