The Martinos Center has its own
but is restricted in that
- it only reachable inside the firewall for via VPN
- only Martinos users can have login accounts needed to
create projects and submit changes or even submit issues
The MGH Research Computing
service is also similarly restricted but anyone with a Partners
account can use it. So this is the site to use if you have code
and you want to work with internal Partners developers outside
You can use external sites like GitHub
only for code that is truly free of all PHI and proprietary info/data.
Please check with the Research Information Security Office.
Using the Martinos GitLab
If you plan to use git from the command line on a Linux workstation
at the Martinos Center, you must first setup an ssh pubkey to copy to your
GitLab profile. If you are a launchpad user, you already have ones named
Only launchpad is configured to use those, but you have other systems
use them by simply making the symlink
ln -s id_rsa_pbs id_rsa
ln -s id_rsa_pbs.pub id_rsa.pub
Some of you might have id_dsa instead of id_rsa. If you so no id* files

ssh-keygen -N ''

and login under the LDAP tab. Then go to your profile area (3rd icon from
the upper right). Then click on SSH Keys and add the contents of the
Once you have done this, you can create your own Groups/Projects
or email other
Group/Project owners to add your account to theirs.
I suggest ever new user go to
to understand permissions and remember that by default on a new project
the master branch is locked to the Master and Owner users of a project.
