Abstract:This document was compiled to help the allocation administrators at XSEDE Resource Allocation Service (XRAS) client sites understand the features provided by the system. XRAS is a suite of tools for managing an allocation process, which includes users submitting requests, panel members (or staff) reviewing those requests, and allocation administrators finalizing project awards based on those requests and reviews. XRAS offers added value for sites operating an allocation process by (a) incorporating your resources and resource information into the request and review process, (b) providing an integrated history of users and their requests at your site, and (c) allowing XRAS to integrate with your local systems. The document provides a brief overview of the XRAS architecture and introduces some key terminology that pervades any discussion of XRAS (and allocations more generally). It includes a brief description of a general high level workflow that you will likely follow or adapt while using XRAS to manage your allocations process. This workflow discussion points to sections later in this document to help you find the detailed instructions for each feature. The document includes setting up and customizing XRAS to your needs and also how you can integrate XRAS with your local systems and services, the XRAS Submit and Review components, paying particular attention to features of interest to allocation administrators, the XRAS Admin application, and finally the detailed settings and configuration options at your disposal.
