WLCG HTTP Proxy Discovery

Mandate and Goals

  • Define the WLCG-wide standards for grid jobs to find out what HTTP proxy or proxies to use
  • This problem has already been attempted to be solved in many different ways, none of them very completely, for example by CernVM, GlideinWMS, ATLAS site configurator, generator files for ATLAS & CMS, and now the Shoal tool for cloud proxies
  • Having a standard would make it much easier for new applications to use local http proxy caches
