We're currently in the final phase of planning for the IDM project (now
named Charon <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charon>, at least internally),
but before we start development we would like to hear feedback from you.
Briefly: The identity management portal is a project in the Infrastructure
Foundations team. The goal is to provide a self service portal, for
requesting, granting and revoking access to various systems and platforms.
This will also impact clinic duty, hopefully making it less of a chore on
SRE, once completed.
One of the initial goals will be to replace the account creation in the
WikiTech wiki, getting us closer to being able to resolve:
(Make Wikitech an SUL wiki.
SUL = Standard
Unified Login) and https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T161553
OpenStackManager from Wikitech).
As currently planned we'll implement the portal in Python and Django
<https://www.djangoproject.com/>, keeping it in line with other SRE
projects, such as Striker and Debmonitor.
The initial implementation steps are described on WikiTech:
. A more detailed roadmap
does exist, but for now what we would like your feedback on is the four Major
use cases for the wikitech IDM
Please use the Talk page on the wiki for feedback and comments. If you feel
a real time conversation is more conducive please catch me (slyngs) or
Moritz (moritzm) on the #wikimedia-sre-foundation IRC channel.
Let us know if you have any questions, use cases you like us to support in
the long term, if there are road blocks you believe we missed or just
feedback in general.
