If you apply for a project and are approved, you will be the ‘project manager’ or ‘tenant manager’ for that particular project. That means you are responsible for the following:

  1. Adding and removing users

  2. Amending and extending resources

  3. Transferring project manager status before you leave the research group

  4. Ensuring the new project manager has full access to any running instances

    • snapshot and relaunch instance

    • change keys (or share)

Amending and extending resources

When submitting a request for amending or extending resources, the tenant manager should ensure the project information in the allocation form is up to date (for example - CI, Grant information etc).

Adding and Removing Users

Users can be members of multiple Projects, sharing each Project’s resources with its members. 

If you are a project manager, you can add or remove users from your allocation in the users tab on the nectar dashboard. To add a user, you only need the email address they use to access Nectar via AAF (their institutional email). It is also incredibly important to remove users once they no longer require access to your project. Even if their AAF/institutional email is no longer valid, it is important to remove them, as they could potentially still use their OpenStack CLI credentials to access the project. 


If you would like to transfer status as "project manager" to another user, request the change by launching a support ticket. It is helpful to do this before your account becomes deactivated if you are leaving your AAF member institution.


How do I increase my existing Projects' resources

As a project manager, you can make changes to your request at any time by clicking on ‘My Requests’ at the dashboard. This will show the requests you have made and you can update them.

If you change and resubmit the request, it will go through the review process as outlined earlier.

This can be used to change the resources allocated, or to extend an allocation prior to its expiry (see Project Allocation and Expiry).
