DISCUSSION ON THE MANDATE

All comments from the April 10th USAG entered in the Mandate section of the USAG twiki. Submitted for approval to the OCC and ROC managers on the 15/4/2008 meeting. Maria to remind ROC mgrs! [Done]

DISCUSSION ON THE NEW GGUS ROUTING-TO-SITES PROPOSAL

The WLCG panel notes, April 22, 2008 were used for the recently invented reserved terms:

ORDINARY TICKETS IN TERMS OF PRIORITY BUT SPECIAL IN TERMS OF ROUTING

Concerns were expressed, already at our last (April 10) meeting about ROCs/Sites that have local ticketing systems. If GGUS assigns the ticket to Sites directly, what "support line" should it chose within the local ticketing system?
Antonio: an uncontrolable number of new tickets risk to be created in the local system/GGUS_ticket during GGUS updates.
Maria: is the COD model enough?
Roberto: why Atlas needs the Site explicitely? Cc is enough and works well.
Xavier and Patricia agree with the COD model.

Decision: The COD workflow model (i.e. assignment to the ROC, Cc to the Site) is sufficient and satisfactory for VO requirements. Submitters will be "The Team".

GGUS development for automatic assignment to the Sites' right email address taken from GOCdb is still necessary (point 2 in WLCG panel notes, April 22, 2008 ).

Point 3 in WLCG panel notes, April 22, 2008 will not be implemented. There was no community interest. Ticket viewing will be possible by all. Update will be only allowed to "The Team" and the supporters involved (ROC, Site).

ALARM/EMERGENCY TICKETS:

Given that the Tier1 operators' alarms emails at each site are not yet ready, Antonio proposed to include the Site alarms' email addresses (when defined via GDB or other body coordination) in GOCDB. Hence GGUS will use the same workflow as above. It will just select the relevant email address for the Cc field when the ticket is submitted by a member for the "Authorised Alarmers" group. When taking the site automatically from GOCDB and its address, for GGUS handling there is no difference between Tier1s and Tier2s.

About the MoU inclusion in GGUS tickets:

GGUS should just include the value for info and make it searchable.

On proposal implementation timescale:

June would be nice but the Site alarms' mailing lists' depends on the GDB and GOCDB.

Next USAG meeting:

Thursday June 5th 2008 at 9:30am CEST (7:30hrs UTC).
