canfar-create-group Application

Group membership is used to control access to proprietary observational data. Groups can be managed via a web UI or via a set of python clients that can be installed to your local machine using pip


$ pip install canfar


The group module comes with some example clients, see the python-canfar-clients GitHub repository for details.

To create a new group to control access to proprietary data use:

$ canfar-create-group --pi_username {USERID} {GROUP}

where {USERID} is the CADC userid of the individual that should be given access and {GROUP} is the group to add that userid to, groups with names matching the pattern {ARCHIVE}-{proposalID} enables priviledged access to telescope {ARCHIVE} data associated (via a CAOM record) to a particular {proposalID}.
