Researchers access EventLogging logs to troubleshoot new experiments
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

Get researchers access EventLogging servers so that they can look at logs & quickly see that things are working as expected (nothing is failing validation).

Create a new read-only permission group on vanadium for people to be able to access the original log and set the appropriate restrictions to make sure these users don’t perform computationally intensive operations

thanks @ggellerman. The group will need to include software developers (we can ask around who should be included).

We don't really have a mechanism for keeping folks from running 'computationally intensive operations'. If you want folks to have unprivileged shell access to eventlogging boxes, they should be added to the 'eventlogging-admins' group.

I'm not sure about what is needed to read eventlogging logs there. If they can't do so with this group, then we will have to set permissions on the log files such that this group can read them.

Can I decline this ticket? Orrrrrrrrr what should I do with it? It is one of very few high priorities assigned to me, and it doesn't feel like a high priority :)

Yes, I believe we can close this task. We have other task to handle the needs here:
T78355: Engineer finds events that fail validation as early as possible {oryx}
