cluster install

Joshua Udall
Dear Galaxy -

We would like to install and instance of Galaxy on our campus cluster.
 The install process looks very straight forward, but tying it in with
our authentication system for the current, functioning cluster may not
be as simple.  It appears that galaxy is easy to install if there are
limited users on a local machine or on a cluster where galaxy is the
main use of the cluster (so it handles all the user accounts).  Where
would I direct our IT admin group to get more assistance with
customizing the authentication process with our existing, function
cluster?

Re: cluster install

Oleksandr Moskalenko
<base href="x-msg://14509/">It's reasonably easy to set up Galaxy to use external authentication. We modeled our authentication after the way MSI folks did it as posted on the galaxy-dev list a while ago. We use SSO (Single Sign On) with mod_auth_tkt SSO tied into an LDAP back-end used for our cluster. I'd be happy to share the details beyond the LDAP authentication discussion you can find in the Galaxy list archives [1] if necessary. In addition, this sort of question is more appropriate to the galaxy-dev, but not the galaxy-user list.

Regards,

Alex
