Requesting access to analytics-privatedata-users and nda groups for edtadros
Closed, ResolvedPublic


wikitech username: Edward Tadros
shell username: edtadros
Email address:
Ssh public key

Requested group membership: analytics-privatedata-users, nda

Reason for access: Data QA in production
We are working on a new process to implement instrumentation Data QA (more on this here- where I would need to query production instrumentation data to see if there are no data quality issues and that values are getting stored as expected. This would be extremely useful for the Product Analytics team to ensure that any Readers Web data they use is consistent and accurate and that they are able to get reliable results from the analyses they perform.
Upcoming Use Case: I will be checking events in the target production wikis and then looking at data in the Schema:DesktopWebUIActionsTracking to see if they match up.

I've added my manager Jean-Rene Branaa as a subscriber.
