If you are a faculty member who has registered for an HPC account, a research group with your UArizona NetID name has automatically been created for you. This group has an allocation of CPU hours associated with it as well as communal storage for your data.
To add members to your research group, go to https://portal.hpc.arizona.edu/ and click the Manage Groups tab at the top of the screen. Click your group's dropdown tab, click Add Member, enter the user's UArizona NetID in the box that appears, and select Add. To add members in bulk, you may also select Upload Member List and upload a CSV file of UArizona NetIDs.
Adding users to your research group will sponsor them for access to HPC and give them access to your compute and storage allocations. Users can be a member of multiple research groups. To add a user, go to the user portal, navigate to the Manage Groups tab, and select your group's dropdown tab. From there, select Add Member:
In the window that pops up, enter the user's university NetID and click Add.
The process may take a few seconds to complete. Once the changes have taken place, you will see the user's NetID in your group:
Creating a New Group
A new group can be created at any time through the user portal. New groups will share their time and storage allocations with your primary group. Alternate research groups can be a good solution for managing file permissions. For example, if you needed to restrict access of a particular directory to a certain subset of your group, you could do this by creating a new research group, adding the group members who need access to those files, and then changing the group ownership of the files/directories that need restricted access.
To create a new group, log into the user portal, select the Manage Groups and select the Add New Group dropdown menu.
Once your group has been created, you will see it when running
