cc @Ottomata || @odimitrijevic for analytics-privatedata-users approval as of data.yaml

@soworu While the approval process is going on, and based on your comment that you are not sure about the SSH key, take a look here on how to generate a new key pair. If that works for you you can then paste the public part of it here on this ticket. It will be needed to make this work. Cheers!

I'm approving this request for @soworu. Let me know if there's anything beyond this comment that I need to do to support. Thanks. - Anusha Alikhan

@Vgutierrez Just analytics if fine. I need it to view the extent of use of the plugin.

@Ottomata , I need it to be able to view a Superset dashboard which tracks pageviews and previews coming from the Wordpress plugin (

If you just need to view a superset dashboard, you do not need ssh access. LDAP + group membership in analytics-privatedata-users is sufficient.

@Ottomata, @soworu: In this case, shall I alter the access request to membership to analytics-privatedata-users? And if so, @Ottomata, do you approve?

@BCornwall, If that is the case, please do the as needed, subject to @Ottomata approval. Thanks.
