    33= The PUMA Service = 
    44 
    5 PUMA (Providing Unified Model Access) is the service set up by NCAS to provide the UK research community with a centralized Unified Model User Interface (UMUI). A centralized UMUI means that all NCAS sites benefit from UMUI improvements and make it easy to share jobs and local files. 
     5PUMA (Providing Unified Model Access) is the service set up by NCAS-CMS to provide the UK research community with centralised access to the UM on ARCHER, MONSooN, Polaris, Mobilis, and HPC Wales.  CMS runs the PUMA service on hardware located at the University of Reading.  It currently hosts no less than 27 code repositories including UM, NEMO, CICE, and mirrors of the recently introduced Met-Office Science Repository Service (MOSRS), and associated Trac systems for approximately 880 users.  Some of the repositories; for example JULES & KPP are accessible to the global community. 
    66 
    7 A further motivator for this service was that from vn7.x the UM is managed by a new system, Flexible Configuration Management (FCM), introduced by the Met Office, which replaces nupdate for new versions of the UM. FCM uses subversion for change control mechanisms and Trac to document and view code changes. Read the [htdocs:FCM/FCM_Overview.pdf FCM Overview (pdf)] document for further information. 
     7== Applying for Access == 
    88 
    9 This new way of managing the UM requires that the UMUI is co-located with subversion and the UM. Expecting individual sites to maintain and support their own installations of FCM + UM is not feasible and would hinder collaboration. 
     9There are several levels of access to the PUMA service depending on what you will be using it for as detailed below. 
    1010 
    11 In order to use this service you must register for an account. Once your request has been authorized, you will be given a login and password to access both the service and the CMS Helpdesk.  We are currently experiencing spam registrations, whilst we work to fix this asap, please email the CMS team on ncas-umsupport @ lists.reading.ac.uk to ask for the PUMA registration link.

     14 * Access to the UMUI & FCM for submission of UM jobs up to vn8.6 and NEMO/CICE to ARCHER, MONSooN, Polaris, Mobilis, etc 
     15 * Submission of Rose suites (UM version 10.x) to ARCHER.

    18 You DO NOT need a PUMA account if you only require access to a public code repository. See the [wiki:PUMA/PublicRepositories list of public repositories]. Please email Rosalyn Hatcher (ncas-umsupport @ lists.reading.ac.uk) specifying your preferred username to request access to these repositories.

    20 If you will only be using Rose on MONSooN, you DO NOT need a PUMA account, only access to the PUMA Rose suite repository.  Again please email us using the address above. 
    21 }}} 
     17Please email the [wiki:/ContactUs CMS Team to ask for the PUMA registration link] (We have been experiencing frequent spam registrations, so have had to temporarily remove the link to the registration form from this page). Once your request has been authorized, you will be sent login details to access both the PUMA service and the CMS Helpdesk.

     23If you will only be submitting suites to MONSooN using Rose (i.e UM Version 10.0 and onwards), you DO NOT need a PUMA account. We would expect most users to put their suites into the ''roses-u'' repository on MOSRS, however, if you require access to the PUMA Rose suite (''roses-puma'') repository, then please email [wiki:/ContactUs CMS Team] with your preferred username.

     25=== Access to one of the Public Repositories === 
     26 
     27If you only require access to a [wiki:PUMA/PublicRepositories  publicly accessible code repository], you DO NOT need a PUMA account. Please email the [wiki:/ContactUs CMS Team] with the following information: 
     28 * Name of the repository you require access to 
     29 * Your preferred username
