XSEDE publishes use cases for managing and using user groups
XSEDE's Cyberinfrastructure Integration area (XCI) recently published new use cases describing how XSEDE personnel and community members need to manage and use group definitions. In its simplest form, a group definition is a list of people that needs to be maintained and used for some ongoing purpose. Typical purposes include access control, communication, and project management. These use cases were derived from a project-wide user needs study conducted in early 2017 by XSEDE's Requirements Analysis and Capability Delivery (RACD) activity. Publishing the documents in the University of Illinois' IDEALS archive ensures that a public record of these use cases is available for future participants and for use in follow-on activities.
