Hi @Miriam

Preferred shell username: aniketars
SSh public key:


I have read and signed the L3 Wikimedia Server Access Responsibilities document.

Hi Aniket, would you kindly provide the following:

  1. Email address
  2. Full reasoning for access (including what commands and/or tasks they expect to perform)
  3. SSH public key, I tried to decode the one you sent, but I am having difficulties, how did you generate it?

Hi Jhathaway,

  2. Mainly i will be generating embeddings of image using one of tensorflow model so that i can write some APIs in the end to use that embeddings. As far as commands are concern i will mainly use pip to install some libraries to work with
  3. Sorry for inconvenience, I've generated the key with ssh-keygen -t ed25519. This time I'm attaching `public key also.

@AniketArs thanks for the followup. Unfortunately since you pasted your private ssh key in your first message, you will need to regenerate both keys, since that private key is now considered compromised. Your private key should be kept secret, treat it as a password which you never share. The public key however you can paste into your phabricator reply, or attach as you did previously. There are some further detail in the L3 document, which may be helpful to review.

@jhathaway Sorry for the key error, I again generated keys which I'm sharing with you(public one)

this time it is a correct key

@AniketArs as an added layer of insurance can you provide that public key via a Gerrit patch, wikitech user page, or Phabricator post with Add Action (Sign with MFA)?

Approved. @Miriam should this account have an expiry_date?

Also, I'm guessing this user will need Kerberos access too, correct?

Thanks @Ottomata! @AniketArs will be with us until the end of the fiscal year, so the expiry_date should be 2020-06-30.
And yes, could we please get Kerberos access too?

@Miriam I assume you mean 2022-06-30 😉, though with covid still with us, who knows what year it is!

Change 757926 had a related patch set uploaded (by JHathaway; author: JHathaway):

Change 757926 merged by JHathaway:

[operations/puppet@production] Add Aniket Bharti to analytics-privatedata-users

@AniketArs change has been submitted, including your kerberos access, please give it a try!

@Miriam I assume you mean 2022-06-30 😉, though with covid still with us, who knows what year it is!

Aha, yes 😊 Thanks so much @jhathaway !

@jhathaway could you double check that @AniketArs has LDAP access? They are not able to access the notebooks.
He is able to access the stat machines now, but not able to login the notebooks (Jupyterhub). It shows 'Invalid username or password'.

@Miriam & @AniketArs they were not part of the nda group, they are added now, please try again.

Thanks @jhathaway , Now I'm able to login
Finally thanks @Miriam

great, marking as resolved, please reopen if you discover any new issues.
