Dear NOMAD developers,
I would like to inquire about the current status of the NOMAD oasis. The FAQ states this is still work in progress, but I also found some docs that seems like it should already work somehow: https://nomad-lab.eu/prod/rae/docs/oasis.html
What is the current status? I’d like to deploy it locally at my institute (Materials Chemistry at RWTH Aachen) for research data management of data which is unsuitable for the public repository. Is this doable at the moment?
I’m also a bit uncertain how the setup described in the howto works. It claims that the user management is done by the central server. What does this actually mean for the workflow? So lets say I get it working at localdomain, how I understand it ATM is:
- new user goes to localdomain
- creates an account there? (or is redirected to central Nomad website?)
- than the Oasis admin has to confirm that this user has indeed access to the Oasis
- the user can use the Oasis at the localhostname in a same way as with the public repository?
Is this correct?
Another slightly problematic part is that the docs claim the local server needs to be accessible on internet. We can get a server from our IT center easily but I’m not sure their rules will allow for it to be accessible from outside the university network. Could this work somehow, or alternatively how hard would it be to set up the local user management as well?
