 Description   

The process of establishing a relationship between a science gateway and XSEDE - a relationship that allows scientific end users of the gateway to benefit from XSEDE resources without interacting directly with them - is currently a moderately technical, un-automated process. Gateway operators must learn a fair deal about XSEDE’s identity and authentication interfaces and modify or develop new code in their own systems to interface with XSEDE. Any user-friendly, automated, fully integration interface, ideally accessible via a web browser, would benefit scientific communities by reducing their need to find and employ expertise toward managing the XSEDE relationship. A “science gateway developer’s dashboard” that offered commonly used services (establishing a community credential, managing end user registration and authentication, monitoring end user usage and associating it with XSEDE resource utilization, setting up a shared data repository, etc.) would be helpful.

There are comments for XCI-31 that can be viewed with XSEDE authentication.
