While we are on the topic of this Rstudio deployment technique, I have not been able to get the post method to work with automatically filling in the login form page with the generated password. I'm wondering if this is because many browsers block this method to mitigate bots. I have currently fallen back to simply printing the generated password on the page once the batch job has started and having users copy and paste.

Please let me know if I am mistaken and there is a better way.

Many thanks,

P.S. We are also interested in the future of this deployment, regarding newer versions of Rstudio

I’d also have the general question as to whether Jeremy intends to maintain the Singularity Container or if somebody on the OOD team will absorb it (we use it also).

Are there any plans to release a new singularity container for Rstudio that works with a newer release of Rstudio?  We have a professor who would like to use it for his class and prefers a later release.

The version we are using was provided by Jeremy Nicholas who is no longer with OSC.  Our security team was not thrilled with us using proot so a container was the alternative.

Has anyone in OOD-land figured out a secure way of running Rstudio without proot using a more recent release of Rstudio?

TIA - Susan
