Accounting of the robot certificate users

Europe/Amsterdam
Description
The usage of robot certificates in EGI.eu considerably grew in the last years and, nowadays, this trend doesn’t seem to stop. A robot certificate can be used by many real users but EGI.eu doesn’t have any information on these. Indeed, currently, the accounting tools don't know anything about the real user behind a robot certificate. This issue doesn’t allow EGI.eu to know the real number of e-infrastructure users and, to bypass this problem, we have to periodically asks portal managers for the list of users registered in a portal. Some months ago EGI.eu started an analysis to find a way to automatically account the users behind robot certificates. A possible solution was identified and it is currently under testing. However, considering that only the web portals have the information on the real users, this solution requires an update on the portal side too. For this reason EGI.eu is organising a web meeting where involving the web portal providers. The idea is to collect feedbacks and start a discussion to understand if we can adopt it as official EGI solutions for the accounting of robot certificate users. Furthermore, free time-slots are available for people willing to present any other possible solution to resolve this issue.
