EDRN Sync Services
EDRN Sync provides an API for slurping up DMCC RDF representing EDRN users and groups and registering those users into our EDRN IC LDAP server.
This document tells you how to install edrn.sync.
pip install edrn.sync
edrn.sync requires the Python programming language. We recommend version 2.4 or later. As of this writing, 2.7 is the latest stable version. If Python is not yet installed on your system, you can find binary and and source distributions from the Python website.
To test if a correct version of Python is available on your system, run:
You should see output similar to:
indicating the version of Python installed. edrn.sync also requires Agile OODT. OODT is Object Oriented Data Technology, a framework for metadata and data grids. Agile OODT is a Python version of OODT that supports higher performance and easier integration than the Java version.
By far the easiest, recommended, and encouraged way to install edrn.sync is to use pip. If your Python installation has pip available to it (and all virtualenvs do), then this one command is all you need to run in order to download, build, install, and generate command-line tools all in one go:
pip install edrn.sync
That will also download and install all dependencies, including Agile OODT.
The commands dmccsync and dmccgroupsync will be generated and placed with your standard installation directory for Python commands. Usually, this is the same location as the python executable itself.
Installing the EDRN Sync Services package makes available the following commands on your computer:
- dmccsync command
- The dmccsync command lets you slurp up a DMCC RDF file containing users that need to be entered into EDRN IC LDAP.
- dmccgroupsync command
- Takes a DMCC RDF users file and a sites file and imports the associated PI groups and collaborative groups into the EDRN IC LDAPS server.
This release fixes the download URL of the package.
This release marks an official release of edrn.sync for use with the EDRN Directory Service.
This release adds group creation programs and APIs including the dmccgroupsync script which implements Heather Kincaid’s algorithm for adding groups and syncing them based on the DMCC RDF. For more information see https://oodt.jpl.nasa.gov/jira/browse/CA-669.
