In order to enable an iCal export link, your account needs to have an API key created. This key enables other applications to access data from within Indico even when you are neither using nor logged into the Indico system yourself with the link provided. Once created, you can manage your key at any time by going to 'My Profile' and looking under the tab entitled 'HTTP API'. Further information about HTTP API keys can be found in the Indico documentation.
Additionally to having an API key associated with your account, exporting private event information requires the usage of a persistent signature. This enables API URLs which do not expire after a few minutes so while the setting is active, anyone in possession of the link provided can access the information. Due to this, it is extremely important that you keep these links private and for your use only. If you think someone else may have acquired access to a link using this key in the future, you must immediately create a new key pair on the 'My Profile' page under the 'HTTP API' and update the iCalendar links afterwards.

<big> Grid-Operator-on-Duty handover </big>
From: DECH / Russia
To: South East Europe / Asia Pacific
Report from DECH COD:
Please note the following about these sites:
YerPhI (ticket 26634): There is an open item in the operations meeting. The mentioned ticket has been closed over the week but needed to reopened since the SAM tests still frequently fail. The reason is always that no information about the SE found in the SE. It is not obvious if this is cased by a bad network connection or a badly performing inforprovider (at least to me). I propose to re-discuss the item at operations meeting.
Australia-UNIMELB-LCG2 (ticket 34393): The SE of site seems to (almost) full since weeks. Beginning of the week it looked better and site was put to quarantine. This needed to be reverted since the situation has not changed. If there is again no reply to the ticket this week, I propose to escalate to the operation meeting next week.
Report from Russian COD:
Nothing to report.

<b>Next CIC portal release - IMPORTANT CHANGES
Next release of the CIC portal is scheduled for Tuesday 22/04.
The portal will be offline between 09:00 UTC and 09:30 UTC to allow a safe transition.
*This release includes many changes in the global design of the portal*
Menus have been reorganized in order to reduce their size, group functionalities and improve user-friendliness.
We are aware that such drastic changes can be disturbing. We'll be happy to help and answer any question you may have on the new interface.

<big> EGEE issues coming from ROC reports </big>
None in this week's ROC reports.
<big> WLCG issues coming from ROC reports </big>
ROC action follow up on behalf of the VO. Some time ago ATLAS asked ROCs to follow-up with sites action on proper version of WNs at sites and 100GB disk space in SW area. Could we ask VOs for assigning a ROC with a ticket in such cases? This was used in past e.g.:
This reduces number of hops to reach the site, the VO can observe progress and sites/ROCs can ask questions to VO.
In CE we would like to discuss some issues with the VO contact for this action. Points to discuss are:
1) Could the VO make critical the test which wants the ROCs to follow up?
2) Could the VO provide documentation for the tests as it is for OPS VO? For some sites the relevant SAM tests are failing and we don t know why. It is also not clear if 100GB is required free space or it is enough to have 100GB space in total for atlas VO.
<big>WLCG Service Interventions (with dates / times where known) </big>

ASGC's circuit provider will perform a maintenance on following two links.
* TW(Taipei) - US(Chicago) - NL(Amsterdam) 2.5Gbps
* TW(Taipei) - NL(Amsterdam) 10Gbps
Start time: 2008-04-23 00:00 UTC
End time: 2008-04-23 02:00 UTC
Impact: ASGC will use alternative route path (via our peers) to T0/T1.
The old Edinburgh site, ce.epcc.ed.ac.uk will be retired from use in two weeks time (1 May 2008). Storage services, via srm.epcc.ed.ac.uk, will be accessible via the new Edinburgh site, ce.glite.ecdf.ed.ac.uk for some time after this, although the intention is to slowly migrate to newer storage.
This means that support for several VOs will be dropped by Edinburgh, as they are not part of UKI-SCOTGRID-ECDF's supported VO list. In particular, these vos are:
alice, babar, biomed, cdf, cms, dzero, esr, fusion, geant4, hone, magic, minos, na48, planck, sixt, t2k and zeus
At the start of May, the site egee.man.poznan.pl will be removed from production and shut down. Please backup your data stored on storage elements belonging to this site.
