XSEDE XCDB gateway catalog:

  • Contains production and prenon-production (pre, post-productionretired, rejected, and other non-production etc.) Science Gateways
  • Normally gateways were registered through the communicate allocation allocations request process, but some recent gateways that don't need community allocations because they run on Jetstream cloud resources haven't been registered
  • Several fields determine which gateways are production and visible in the XUP's gateway listing
  • Rob needs plans to review, add, and otherwise cleanup the list of XSEDE gateways
  • Some registrations don't represent traditional Science Gateways
  • Needed so that Used as a tool for XSEDE management can (Rob) to vet and control flag which Science Gateways have officially satisfied XSEDE Science Gateway requirements 


Leverage the SGCI Science Gateways catalog for public information about XSEDE Science Gateways, and reduce the role of the XSEDE gateway catalog to "flagging" which SGCI gateways are XSEDE production and for tracking non-production gateways.

XSEDE XCDB gateways impact:

  • Add an SGCI ID field that identifies the corresponding SGCI Science Gateway registration (most likely the SGCI gateway ID)
  • Production XSEDE Science Gateways must be registered in the SGCI Science Gateway registry and have an SGCI ID in XCDB
  • Eliminate redundant fields that are duplicates of what the SGCI catalog has
  • Keep at Title field, even if it's redundant, so that XCDB entries gateway records have a human recognizable name/title


RSP software discovery impact:

  • Enable Load and enable discovery of all SGCI Science Gateways
  • Once XCDB has the SGCI ID, flag XSEDE production SGCI Science Gateways in for RSP discoveryDiscovery.

Action Items

For leads and members of their teams:

  •  Maytal, Rob, and Nathan: make changes to the XCDB gateway schema
  •  Rob: add the SGCI ID to XCDB production gateways
  •  Maytal: update the XUP gateway display UI to display SGCI Gateway information for XSEDE gateways
  •  JP: load all SGCI gateways into the RSP
  •  JP: flag XCDB production gateways in the RSP
