Request to add Andrew McAllister to ldap/wmde group
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I’m employed at WMDE as a developer and would like to be added to the ldap/wmde group.
My Wikitech username is Andrew McAllister (WMDE), and my shell username is andrewtavis-wmde.

I need to

  • sign NDA with WMF legal for LDAP access
  • get added to ldap/wmde

  • The username of your existing account on Andrew McAllister (WMDE)
  • Do you currently have production shell access (Yes/No)? No, shell username: andrewtavis-wmde
  • The specific LDAP group that you want to be added to (optional): nda, wmde

@AndrewTavis_WMDE: Please update any WMDE templates not to use custom stuff but only link to - thanks!

I just signed the NDA :)

@Aklapper I'll connect with @karapayneWMDE about changing the templates. Thanks for bringing this to our attention!

Edit: comment on our main onboarding doc was made :)

Hi all, I am confirming the NDA has been signed. Please proceed with the access request. Thanks!

Thanks @KFrancis
@AndrewTavis_WMDE Can you provide me with your wmde email address please?

@Clement_Goubert I don't want to paste it for the user, but see the output of:

[mwmaint1002:~] $  ldapsearch -x uid=andrewtavis-wmde | grep mail

Note there is uid=andrewtavis and uid=andrewtavis-wmde. The latter is the right one with the address, last name is a different one.

For these requests it's usually 2 LDAP groups, wmde and nda.

Ah thanks @Dzahn I didn't think to use LDAP for this. I'll add it to the documentation.
