Bug #5132

Connecting Workflow Run Manager to remote KAR store should prompt for credentials

We need an authentication and authorization mechanism for client kepler to access remote Provenance DB.

We can borrow the existing Scheduler Server mechanism:
String isLoggedIn(String sessionid)
boolean isAuthorized(String user)

Here are some open questions:

1. What format do we specify access rule? By an eml access file?
2. If we use eml access rule, what level will be used as data object? The whole database or each run result?
3. How can we specify the access rule? Maybe we need another GUI for this. Where should we put it?

In our reap meeting, we decided to import remote workflow run kar files rather than directly access a remote provenance DB for the display of the remote workflow run manager . So I think we can close the bug. But this need a confirmation from Derik.

Just discussed this bug with Dan - it's true most of the original intent of this bug is no longer relevant now that I'll download kars for showing remote runs, but I'm changing the title and leaving it open -- when you connect to a remote kar-repository with the WRM, you should be prompted for credentials so you can view private run-kars too, similar to how data tab searches prompt you on your first search.
