Hi CherRaye!

I added the checklist and need a couple things in order to proceed: an SSH public key and sign off that those groups are the right ones. (@Nuria may be able to help here)

Once I have these we can proceed.

Those groups are correct, thanks Cole!

If your manager can't approve, I suppose @Nuria can?

Also, for SSH key generation, see:

@CGlenn I think the way to proceed here is to make you manager acquitted with phab and procedures arround data access. Let's start there. Once your manager has a user and can approve your request we can proceed. It is important to note whether you are a full time employee or a contractor.

@CGlenn : see my comment above, we need approval from your manager in phab.

@Nuria Yes, absolutely. I am working on getting my manager to create an account in phab. He is new.

@Nuria going to get a Mac computer so I am going to need to generate a new SSH key. Deleting the previous key that was generated.

Ack, just ping the task with the new SSH key when you received your new computer.

@Nuria Hi Nuria! Yes, I read the instructions. My update was to reply to the previous user that I updated the SSH key. I am still working on the other items. Is there something I missed on the Data Access page? Thanks!

We need approval from your manager in phab, per my comment above.

@Nuria Hi Nuria! Yes, I am aware that needs to be accomplished. I have the checklist in my ticket.

Hello I have added the key above to the patch and merged it. This means that shortly (within 30 or so minutes) the key should be propagated to the appropriate bastions.
