With the last ClearML Server update we have observed that filtering by USER is quite messy.

There are multiple instances of the same user: same name but different user id (it seems). Why does this happen? Can we somehow control this, e.g., combine multiple users into one?

They are different, yes

You can easily do that change in the mongodb database - simply replacing a user ID with another user's ID should do the trick

I would suggest setting the server to use fixed users/passwords

But the tasks should aways be connected to the same user, right?

What would happen if I deleted them out of the database?

  
  
Posted one year ago

Yes, I do.

Exactly. It’s hard to say for me whether this is an error on our end or yours. However, our setup is very rudimentary-->we basically use only the standard settings.

You can safely delete them from the auth database, this should not affect anything

I assume you removed them from the auth DB, right?

nope, not right now

Thanks.

We’d like to consolidate these users in the WebUI because it’s very clustered. Is there a way to consolidate their experiments under the same user? I’d probably have to scroll through all experiments and change them manually, right?

You need to exec into the clearml-mongo container and use the mongo CLI to list the collection contents - do you have access to the machine running the ClearML server?

for to the database and check the

user

collection in the

auth

database

How do I find this?

This would indicate the server created them on separate occasions

Are they really identical? Can you check in the mongodb database?

Is there a way to join these accounts into a single one?

  
  
Posted one year ago

Yes

SuccessfulKoala55 I updated the mongo db (removed 2 users) but I still see them in the User Filter in the WebUI. Does it take longer to update that or do I have to do that manually?

This would indicate the server created them on separate occasions

How can this be if the names are exactly the same?

I assume their emails are automatically generated strings? are they different?

They are connected to the user who's credentials you use...

Is there a way to use Google Auth on free tier?

If the supplied credentials are the same?

  
  
Posted one year ago

OK, this means they were created by the server on different occasions, which means for some reason when logging in it did not locate the user entry and created a new one... very strange

  
  
Posted one year ago

I did. They are. The name field is identical.
They were created on different dates, and have different ids and different emails.
The company, role and credentials are equal.

I navigated my way to the users in the database. The name of User 1 is exactly the same, however, the instances have different IDs and credentials.

So what you're seeing are the entries from the backend database - if you delete those, you won't see them any more 🙂

(and sorry for the late reply 😞 )

  
  
Posted one year ago

Yes, we can freely create different users

  
  
Posted one year ago

Yes
