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.

To be followed up with Michael Ernst and IT Physics Groups leaders. (The agreement is
apparently 'in principle', but the details still to be worked out).
As end of 2006 is approaching, we have to define IT services availability during the
CERN annual closure. I propose that groups send me before the end of the month the
availability plans of your services, based on requests from users.
1) which services are to be kept running and what coverage
2) which services will be left unattended
3) which services will be switched off
As far as compensation is concerned, we have now provided our input to HR in the view
of a possible amendment to the SRR, but no feedback so far. However for planning
purposes, a safe working assumption would be to assume that the same rules as
previous years will be applied.
I will also need from you a detailed plan of people availability during the annual
closure. But I'll send a reminder for this.
Please find attached the coverage message which was sent last year.
Oracle quarterly patch15m
News from installation on integration RAC
Testing schedule of relevant services
Scheduling of installation on production RAC(s)
Oracle has released yesterday the October security patch for their software. This is
a rolling patch, so no service interruption is expected. We need to install it as
soon as possible on the integration/validation database INT3R and request that you
test your applications against this patch. About one week after, if agreed on
WLCG-SCM and if no problems reported by the application owners, we will do the same
on the production server.
