Dear Gen3 team,
we are currently trying out how a Gen3 Data Commons would fit into our data landscape. We started by following the instructions for "third party installs" at https://github.com/uc-cdis/cloud-automation/blob/master/doc/csoc-free-commons-steps.md
Everything went fine so far, thank you for the nice writeup. We have a few questions concerning config.tfvars:
We assume this is the FQDN of a host (or an ALB?) that terraform will create. We also assume we can pick an arbitrary hostname that is covered by the AWS certificate specified before. Is that correct?
In another thread, we read that this can be set to any value in case we use a local file for the user.yaml. How do we specify this local user.yaml and what should it look like?
Can we pick any arbitrary name, as we have not been introduced to Trevar and Zac ?
google_client_secret and google_client_id
We neither want to connect our Gen3 to any other entity, nor do we want to set up Google authentication. Instead, we would like to use OpenID Connect to setup authentication with our organization. Can we just skip the Google credentials, or do we have to setup an (empty) Google project for Gen3?
