Noting is already in the wmf group, so @Samwilson should be able to get past the login screen at and view some dashboards (that do not access private data).

Hey there @MMandere and @Urbanecm, he needs access to private data as well.

Sorry! I totally meant to add that. Thanks.

I'm still getting an error when I try to view FROM event.visualeditorfeatureuse:

Permission denied: user=samwilson, access=EXECUTE, inode="/wmf/data/event":analytics:analytics-privatedata-users …

I've tried logging out and in again but still get it. Does the permission change take some time to sync?

@Samwilson, checking I'll advise once done.

@MMandere don't worry, it's working now! :-) thanks!

@Samwilson Great, you're welcome! Is there something else you did for it to start working?

No, I don't think so. I did try logging out and in again, but the fix came some time after that.

@Samwilson : It seems related to Puppet (our configuration management system) run times. Your update that it was still failing happened 21 minutes after Marc had merged the patch and our servers appliy configuration changes twice per hour (but distributed across the full 30 minute range to spread the load). You were simply unlucky :-)

hehe I was too impatient! :-) Thanks for the explanation.
