GMOC Support - Requesting Data Submission Credentials

 

Follow this procedure to grab the password hash for submission of monitoring data, and send that hash to the GMOC (gmoc@grnoc.iu.edu) for use with your monitoring data. This assumes you have already generated a password for GMOC monitoring data submission and put it in /usr/local/etc/monitoring_passwd
Determine the password hash by running the following command:
openssl passwd -apr1 -stdin < /usr/local/etc/monitoring_passwd
Send the hash to gmoc@grnoc.iu.edu. Please:
Use 'measurement api secret' as the subject of your message.
Include the exact name which you would like GMOC to use for your site in the body of the message. (If you have previously been submitting data to the GMOC dev site, this is the <site> name, including spelling and capitalization, which you used to identify yourself there.)
The GMOC will send you the production url. This is the url that should be placed on as the DestURL on the measurement exporter config.

Follow this procedure to grab the password hash for submission of monitoring data, and send that hash to the GMOC (gmoc@grnoc.iu.edu) for use with your monitoring data.  This assumes you have already generated a password for GMOC monitoring data submission and put it in /usr/local/etc/monitoring_passwd.

  1. Determine the password hash by running the following command:
    openssl passwd -apr1 -stdin < /usr/local/etc/monitoring_passwd
  2. Send the hash to gmoc@grnoc.iu.edu.  Please:
  • Use 'measurement api secret' as the subject of your message.
  • Include the exact name which you would like GMOC to use for your site in the body of the message. (If you have previously been submitting data to the GMOC dev site, this is the <site> name, including spelling and capitalization, which you used to identify yourself there.
  • Here's an example message template you can use. Substitute your own sitename and encrypted password hash for the example ones:
    To:      gmoc@grnoc.iu.edu
    Subject: measurement api secret
    
    Please create site credentials for monitoring data submission to the GMOC-DB API using this username/password:
    
    Username: SITENAME
    Password: $apr1$xxxxxxxx$xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    

The GMOC will then send you the production url. This is the url that should be placed on as the DestURL on the measurement exporter config.
