REVIEW-70: XCI-419 Gateway attribute submission improvements for 2018 - Test Readiness Review


XSEDE requires all gateways to report the number of unique users per quarter who have executed jobs on XSEDE resources. This is a key metric that XSEDE in turn reports to the NSF. Compliance with this requirement justifies XSEDE's investment in the science gateway community. XSEDE has previously collected this information using a gateway attribute submit command-line tool that SPs install.  This activity delivers a new gateway attribute submit API that enables science gateways to directly submit the needed job attributes and does not rely on a SP installed command-line tool. 

This test readiness review is a lightweight review of the written materials and will then be followed by testing (of the proposed test plan).
