XSEDE COmanage Group Management Now Available

Apr 30, 2021

A new XSEDE group management capability, using COmanage Registry from the COmanage Project and InCommon/Internet2, is now available. This capability will enable groups of XSEDE users and staff to manage people groups (e.g., authorizing use of a resource), for communication (e.g., managing an email list), and for project management (e.g., task assignments). This new capability is a result of a technology readiness assessment by XSEDE to identify a group management technology solution to implement XSEDE's group management use cases.

Initially, XSEDE will use this group management capability to manage staff groups in Jira, Confluence, and AWS. In phases 2 and 3, this capability will be extended to support XSEDE allocation groups and XSEDE research group defined groups for integration with additional software and services.
