NERC system maintenance [May 15, 2023 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM]

NERC planned system maintenance will occur on Monday May 15, 2023 from 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM.


– We will be updating the NERC’s ColdFront services. Access to the NERC’s API services will be briefly disrupted during this time.


– We are upgrading and updating NERC’s ColdFront deployment.

– We will resolve the problem with the automatic approval of users’ Rados Gateway Object Storage/Swift quota.

– Another issue we will address is the maximum length of project titles on NERC’s ColdFront, which previously caused unsuccessful allocations on both NERC’s OpenStack and OpenShift platforms.

– The estimated time to complete this upgrade is 2 hours. It can take less, so we urge you to keep an eye on to get the progress during this time.

– Please do subscribe to the NERC’s status for any future updates:

Our priority is to help make science happen, so If you or your research team have any questions or need to escalate an issue, please contact us via email ( or, by submitting a new ticket at the NERC’s Support Ticketing System (osTicket).
