Cylc server security / credentials


I work for Spire Inc and I am looking at workflow managers, I am considering using Cylc.

We use a shared HPC and are therefore about concerned about security aspects when it comes to running servers. I tried to google this and looked at the documentation but haven’t found anything about the topic.

Are there any mechanisms to limit access to the server?


Start by having a read of this page (and the pages it links to):
(this is for Cylc 8)

The most important thing to understand is that each Cylc workflow has it’s own scheduler which runs as the user and can only be connected to by that user.

(I’ve assumed that when you say “server” are are referring to the scheduler

Does that help?
