Subject RE: Users and UserGroups in Science Gateways
Date Fri, 31 Jan 2014 17:31:26 GMT
In the CIPRES usecase, how would you allow access to shared spaces in terms of the user experience?
having one shared Space for the user and populate with all the experiments shared with the
user or
having multiple shared spaces categorized by the usergroup?

The current CIPRES use case is focused on the single user, and so I would imagine the former.
This isn't an issue we have addressed yet since we don't support groups yet. But I imagine
it would be
the users space is populated with all items (s)he is allowed to see.

Thanks a lot Saminda,

So a user will have access to multiple shared spaces ( for each usergroup) and to his/her
own private space.

In the CIPRES usecase, how would you allow access to shared spaces in terms of the user experience?
having one shared Space for the user and populate with all the experiments shared with the
user or
having multiple shared spaces categorized by the usergroup?

I'm not an expert on the Amber usecase, but I suppose it is possible to have multiple user
groups for a single usecase. It could be to have a shared space of data hidden from each user
group. It could be to author access/privilledges to the portal or resources depending on the
user group.
I would assume the mapping of user to usergroups would be many to one mapping. Unlike user
roles I don't think it is sensible to have users being mapped to multiple groups (there is
a whole area of security to consider here).

(I do have to note that usergroup IMO is not a must concept for a science gateway)

Hi all,

Can someone explain to me the mapping of users to groups in a Science Gateway? ( This is regarding
the Amber usecase).

Can there be multiple user groups in a gateway portal when it comes to just one usecase?
ex: If we have only one usecase for the portal ( such as Amber)
