Re: [HTCondor-users] Accounting Groups

So I see a small typo here that is going to prevent the map file from working correctly.


The first argument to usermap needs to be the mapfile name,  you are using "AssignGroup",

but the mapfile name is Groups.


Also the attribute that you want to set is AccountingGroup, not AcctGroup.  Setting AcctGroupUser

and AcctGroup is optional â it can help you to see what the transform is doing, but these are attributes

that none of the Htcondor daemons care about.  AccountingGroup is the only one that really matters.


So your config might look like this.



CLASSAD_USER_MAPFILE_Groups = /path/to/mapfile 



JOB_TRANSFORM_AssignGroup @=end 







Finally, I see some people already addressed this, but since AcctGroupUser is being used in the transform as a job attribute.

Using it *also* as a group name prefix on the CM is going to cause some confusion.   It might be better to use a different name there, the convention is to just use âgroupâ like this


GROUP_NAMES = group_userA

GROUP_QUOTA_group_userA = 100



Hope this helps.

I was able to get further.  Thanks to this, https://indico.cern.ch/event/817927/contributions/3570542/attachments/1913668/3162964/ScheddTransforms.pdf



CLASSAD_USER_MAPFILE_Groups = /path/to/mapfile 



JOB_TRANSFORM_AssignGroup @=end 

[ copy_Owner="AcctGroupUser"; copy_AcctGroup="RequestedAcctGroup"; eval_set_AcctGroup=usermap("AssignGroup",AcctGroupUser,AcctGroup); ] 



On my CM, I now have

GROUP_NAMES = AcctGroupUser

GROUP_QUOTA_AcctGroupUser_userA = 100


That should set userA quota to 100.


is this correct? Also, what is the purpose of the mapfile? I know it must exist but not sure why we need it.

Restarted condor. Submitted a job. And now, I see in my condor_userprio my username and resource used. Is this a good way to validate the change? Now that user accounting groups are squared away, How can I enforce the quota?


JOB_TRANSFORM_AssignGroup = [ eval_set_AccountingGroup = userMap("Groups",Owner,AccountingGroup); ]

With schedd transforms, the schedd can now automatically assign an
accounting group to a user based on a mapping file the admin sets up. 
Some details are given here, though we hope to improve the documentation:
