Hi Iwona:

I would support a RFE for group-based operator roles.  Perhaps we should file one if it does not already exist?

Cheers,

Bernard

I rememer once looking into this option but the manual says:

#
Managers. Managers have full capabilities to manipulate the
grid engine system.
#
Operators. Operators can perform many of the same commands as managers,
except that operators cannot add, delete, or modify queues.

Well, that is WAY too much. I do trust them but it's so easy to make
an honest mistake I do not want to mop up after....

Anyway if you ever considered any granularity in priviledges,
groups would be a natural way to go. For example "a group operator
- has full power over group jobs...."

Just a suggestion....

Iwona
