SWAN project sharing problem


I have a SWAN project (running a python3 thingy) which I am trying to share. I have tested that if I hover over the project and share it with another person he/she can open the project “view only” and then can also “clone” it OK.

The problem comes when executing the cloned project. Some of the cells are reading in python an external file which is sitting in my EOS public path. But when they run the cloned version they get this error from python:

PermissionError                           Traceback (most recent call last)
<ipython-input-7-9a54838bf1e1> in <module>
      6 CL = 0.9
      7 # Read in the pre-generated Rcrit values
----> 8 f = open('/eos/user/b/bradics/public/Rcrit_T2K_500.txt', 'r')
      9 indata = f.readlines()
     10 f.close()

PermissionError: [Errno 1] Operation not permitted: '/eos/user/b/bradics/public/Rcrit_T2K_500.txt'

I have checked that the public folder has 755 permissions for everything (that is reading, and executing for anyone should work).

What can be the problem?


Hi Balint,

Can you please create a SNOW ticket (https://cern.service-now.com/service-portal/report-ticket.do?name=request&se=CERNBox-Service)?
I will follow from there. But it looks like your public folder is not really public.


Hi Diogo,

Yes, of course. I am happy to create a ticket on SNOW!
