Verify configuration records

On a yearly basis, the information registered into GOC-DB need to be verified. NGIs and RCs have been asked to check them. In particular:

  1. NGI managers should review the people registered and the roles assigned to them, and in particular check the following information:
    • E-Mail
    • ROD E-Mail
    • Security E-Mail
NGI Managers should also review the status of the "not certified" RCs, in according to the RC Status Workflow;
  1. RCs administrators should review the people registered and the roles assigned to them, and in particular check the following information:
    • E-Mail
    • telephone numbers
    • CSIRT E-Mail
RC administrators should also review the information related to the registered service endpoints.

The process should be completed by June 22nd.

Date Number of endpoints in BDII Number of GGUS tickets Issues
2020-06-08 75 42 Some ARC endpoints publish a timestamp instead of a version like 5.X.Y; we can fairly assume they are ARC6 nightly builds, but we're going to close the corresponding tickets after explicit confirmation from the site admin.
