Hi,

after thinking more about this and also trying to get Apache use NIS (I failed 
with that :-( )
I just came up with an idea for a different solution:

I don't use NIS for login into galaxy but when starting jobs I consult a mapping file (or the database) to map email addresses to know users. For unknown users I just continue to use the "galaxy" user. I guess a good starting point would be DRMAAJobRunner.queue_job

Do you see any bigger problems coming my way?
How best do I avoid to degress from the main tree to much?

regards, Andreas

Hi Andreas:

As far as I know Galaxy is designed to manage its own users and not to be 
integrated in any other
platform. I think that the idea is to use galaxy as another user of your system.

Hi Alfonso,

Andreas is referring to recent changes that allow jobs to run as users other 
than the single
Galaxy user that started the server process. See:

http://wiki.g2.bx.psu.edu/Admin/Config/Performance/Cluster#Submitting_Jobs_as_the_Real_User

Yes, that's what I wanted.

Hi,

I (re-)installed galaxy on our server and managed to set it up to run jobs 
through our cluster
(GridEngine). It's also running behind an Apache proxy now.
But now I'm wondering how to setup to have the cluster jobs run as the real 
cluster users. I
found the documentation on this topic a little thin.
We use NIS for managing users and passwords across the cluster. How do I 
connect that to Galaxy?

Andreas,

You'll need to have Apache authenticate your users, as explained here:

http://wiki.g2.bx.psu.edu/Admin/Config/Apache%20Proxy

For NIS without Kerberos, you'd probably need to use mod_auth_pam to 
authenticate through your
system's PAM stack.

Thanks, I will look into it.

regards, Andreas
