Requesting Automation Users


When performing automated Release Engineering tasks using RelEng Automation you will sometimes find that you need to perform an action in the Infrastructure with sudo that does not yet have an automation user associated with it.


Requesting a new loopabull user

File a ticket with Fedora Infrastructure making sure to satisfy the following requirements:

  • Provide a justification for these permissions being needed (What are you trying to do and why?)

  • Commands needing to be run with sudo

  • Destination server on which the commands need to be run

  • The loopabull_ username requested to be created for this OR which loopabull_ username needs it’s pre-existing permissions enhanced
