access_list - Sun Grid Engine access list file format
Access lists are used in Sun Grid Engine to define access
permissions of users to queues (see queue_conf(5)) or paral-
lel environments (see sge_pe(5)). A list of currently con-
figured access lists can be displayed via the qconf(1) -sul
option. The contents of each enlisted access list can shown
via the -su switch. The output follows the access_list for-
mat description. New access lists can be created and exist-
ing can be modified via the -au and -du options to qconf(1).
Departments are a special form of access list that addition-
ally allow assignment of functional shares and override
Note, Sun Grid Engine allows backslashes (\) be used to
escape newline (\newline) characters. The backslash and the
newline are replaced with a space (" ") character before any
The following list of access_list parameters specifies the
The name of the access list as defined for userset_name in
The type of the access list, currently one of ACL, or DEPT
or a combination of both in a comma separated list. Depend-
ing on this parameter the access list can be used as access
list only or as a department.
The amount of override tickets currently assigned to the
The current functional share of the department.
The entries parameter contains the comma separated list of
those UNIX users (see user_name in sge_types(1)) or those
primary UNIX groups that are assigned to the access list or
the department. Only a user's primary UNIX group is used;
secondary groups are ignored. Only symbolic names are
allowed. A group is differentiated from a user name by pre-
fixing the group name with a '@' sign. Pure access lists
allow enlisting any user or group in any access list.
When using departments, each user or group enlisted may only
be enlisted in one department, in order to ensure a unique
assignment of jobs to departments. To jobs whose users do
not match with any of the users or groups enlisted under
entries the defaultdepartment is assigned, if existing.
