The XSEDE Central Database "XDCDB" stores job and resource allocation information for XSEDE users. To enhance XDCDB security we've introduced a new REST API that replaces less secure direct database connections. Two software tools were upgraded to use the new XDCDB REST API: the xdusage tool which provides users the ability to lookup allocation information from the command line and the gateway_submit_attributes tool which enables science gateways to report the gateway user submitting a job under a science gateway community account.
The deployment plans are now available below:
All Service Providers should implement the new version of xdusage by April 28th. Service Providers that support Science Gateways should upgrade to the new version of gateway_submit_attributes also by April 28th.
