NRAO Interactive Services Modification Request 10 T3 2010

1. Introduction

2. Background

3. Requirements

  • Disabled Accounts. Add information in the xml about disabled accounts.
  • Account Names. The account name policy is too permissive. For example, there are users with spaces, tildes, etc. in their names. This has caused problems with other tools (e.g., OPT). This will be dealt with in two stages: first do not allow new users to have users names with odd characters, and second alter the existing user names that have such characters. The second step will be executed after the 1 Oct proposal deadline. Here is the regular expression representing valid account names which means that any string of two or more characters that doesn't include a space, ~, %, back tick, semicolon, \, /, (, ), [, ], { or }.
    • [^\s~%`;,\\\/\(\)\[\]\{\}]{2,}
  • XML Query. We need a query to get a user by group. Main.Stephan thought this used to exist but he does not see it anymore.

4. Design

Technical lead should provide a brief description of how this will be implemented in the code.

5. Deployment Checklist

Documentation? Systems/hardware/networking things needed for deployment?

6. Test Plan

6.1 Internal Testing

6.2 Sponsor Testing

6.3 Integration/Regression Tests
