I would like to set a partition to Hidden, and allow members of the
appropriate Account to see this partition when running `sinfo` with no
This partition is configured with AllowAccounts=<account> and
AllowGroups=<group>. <user> is a member of the Slurm account
<account>, verified with `sacctmgr show assoc where user=<user>`.
I am running Slurm 23.02.4, and I am testing the behavior with `sudo
-u <user> sinfo`. I presume this test is accurate because as an admin
user, `sinfo` shows all partitions, but when I impersonate the user
like this, `sinfo` shows only the partitions that have Hidden=NO.
I would prefer to do this with only AllowAccounts, but if this only
works with AllowGroups, that's not a big deal.
We intend to add partitions corresponding to many small research
groups, and it would be lovely to have `sinfo` output be clean and
clear, rather than showing all partitions. What could I be doing
wrong, that Hidden= doesn't seem to be taking into account
AllowAccounts= or AllowGroups=?
Thanks for your help,
