Our primary use-case for monitoring Cylc suites is to have limited-permission users be able to run scans, open suites, and view logs via the GUI. So far scanning only works with --debug but cylc gscan works perfectly, and cylc mon/gcylc both work as well.
We’re hitting issues with the viewing logs portion because the Cylc GUI client tries to use ssh with the user running the suite, rather than the user running gcylc so naturally this causes permission denied messages with not log output.
Is there a configuration flag where I can tell Cylc to use a local filesystem path rather than ssh? We’re using a network filesystem for cylc-run so there really isn’t a need for ssh in our specific case.
How would Cylc 8 handle this, since it uses a web interface (running as say a dedicated web owner) to communicate with suites running as a different suite owner?
Edit: Found the “use login shell” setting in global.rc… Setting that to False did the trick!
