Hi @SCherukuwada, and welcome! Indeed if you just need to access superset, we don't need to define any ssh keys for your access. If that's the case, please confirm. Please review as well.

@dr0ptp4kt can you please approve of this request?

For the signoff on the analytics side, I guess either @Ottomata or @odimitrijevic should provide it.

Confirmation: As it stands now, I only need access to superset.

I acknowledge that I've read

Thanks and regards,


SCherukuwada will need analytics-privatedata-users group membership and wmf LDAP membership (if they don't already have it), but no ssh key.
