PAS groups to control access to your ERISOne storage or nodes

Partners Authentication System (PAS) groups allow the data owner / lab manager to control who has access to their storage or Adopt-a-Node resource on the ERISOne Linux cluster.  To administer PAS groups you must have taken the "Keygiver" training.  PAS group support was introduced in 2018; ERISOne groups created earlier than this are legacy "local groups" which can be transitioned to PAS groups on request (email hpcsupport@partners.org).

Prerequisite Training

Obtaining a PAS group

  • After completion of your training you can setup the group through the Service Desk (https://rc.partners.org/ticket). First "Make a Request" using request type "galen global group (request)" or submit a generic ticket ("Open a Ticket") with the information below
    • In the GROUP NAME entry, replace INST with your institution code (e.g. MGH or BWH) and PROJECT with a short name for your lab or project.
