Note: If your Argonne Collaborator has expired, you must resubmit an Argonne Collaborator request to regain access and follow the same steps listed below to regain JLSE access. The Argonne Collaborator system will likely ask you to choose a different username however the Service Desk will ensure your previous username remains as your default username. ECP users will not be required to resubmit the ECP JIRA request if it was already done previously. ECP/ESP users do not have to re-acknowledge the Terms of Service (TOU) unless your affiliation has changed.
- This step is for ECP project members only. Non-ECP users should skip this step and go to step 2. Request Aurora early hardware/software access through ECP by filling out the Jira form below. If you have already put in a request and it was not rejected or you did not change institutions, please skip this step as you do not need to put in a 2nd request.
Jira form link: https://jira.exascaleproject.org/servicedesk/customer/portal/10/create/254. If you don’t have an ECP Atlassian account, follow the steps below:
- Ask your PI or his/her representative to complete the onboard form https://jira.exascaleproject.org/servicedesk/customer/portal/20/create/189 and be sure they select “Jira Project” in the tools access list (Optional to also select “Confluence”).
- Once submitted, notifications are sent to initiate the ECP Atlassian account creation process. PI approval and PAS (personnel access system) approval must be completed before the account is created. PAS processing for foreign nationals can take 7-10 days or more after receipt of required materials.
- Requestor will be notified when the ECP Atlassian account is created.
Questions regarding ECP Jira account or access should be emailed to [email protected]. Proceed to step 2 once you have submitted the ECP Jira form.
2. Request an Argonne Collaborator account if you are not from Argonne by following the instructions on this page : request a collaborator account. If you are from Argonne, you can skip this step and proceed to the next step. ECP users should note that your collaborator account request will be approved and created only after your ECP JIRA request is processed. However, you can complete step 3 before the account is created.
4. Log in to https://accounts.cels.anl.gov with your Argonne credentials. For non-Argonne users, this is your Argonne Collaborator account and it can only be used after your temporary password is changed to a permanent password. See step 8 on request a collaborator account page for details. If you need assistance with your password, call the Argonne Service Desk at 630-252-9999, option 2.
5. Click the “Join Project” link on the left side of your account management page to request the “jlse” project. Note that you should click on Join Project and not Join Unix Group. Project memberships must be approved by the owner or a proxy. Approvals can take up to a week or more, in some cases.
6. After you have logged in, setup your SSH RSA public and Private keys. See SSH Public Key Authentication for more information.
7. To check if you jlse project membership request is approved, log in to your account at https://accounts.cels.anl.gov and check the status in the navigation bar on the left-hand side. If you see “jlse” listed under the tab “Membership Requested”, then your request is pending approval. As mentioned above, approvals can take up to a week or more, in some cases.
8. You will be required to enroll in the new CELS DUO MFA system on your next login to the accounts system.
Note to users that previously had a JLSE account: If you had a JLSE account previously and would like to access your old files, email [email protected] using the same email address that was added to your old account. JLSE admins will need to verify the identity of the account holder (old and new accounts) before they migrate your old home directory and /gpfs/jlse-fs0/users/ to the new UID and GID.
Note to foreign national users: The U.S. Department of Energy has guidelines and requirements for foreign visitors who access its facilities and sites. This guidance is issued in DOE Order 142.3, which is part of Argonne’s contract; therefore, all foreign visitors (non-U.S. Citizens) must obtain authorization prior to using JLSE resources. If you are a foreign national and do not have current authorization credentials, you will require an ANL-593 (Foreign National Access Request) form. Foreign National Applicants must have the following information available before you apply for an account: passport, immigration/residence documents, dates and institutions of degrees conferred.
If you are transitioning from an Argonne appointment to external collaborator, after your appointment ends, follow the directions above to get a collaborator account. If possible, use the same username but with the “ac.” prefix (e.g. “username” would become “ac.username”). After your collaborator account is created, let us know at [email protected] that you want to transition your JLSE account to this login. You cannot apply for the collaborator account while your Argonne appointment is current.
Unless explicitly noted, the JLSE mailing lists, computing environment, and wiki are NOT to be used to discuss, store, or operate with any NDA/RSNDA, Official Use Only (OUO), or Business Sensitive information.
JLSE is a shared environment that is focused on development compute resources. It is not a production compute facility. Users are expected to consider others in the length and quantity of resource usage. If there is contention for a resource, it’s expected that you will be considerate of other users’ deadlines and priorities against your own.
Note to Account sponsors: If you are expecting to see a collaborator account but have not seen anything, check https://apps.inside.anl.gov/cgp/list_pending to see if you have accounts awaiting your approval.
