We have set up Jupyter notebooks here and it is working great. However one question I have gotten a few times from users is “What is my password?” when they log out of Jupyter notebooks and they still have an active session. I am seeing how I can make this a bit more intuitive for users, as they won’t know to look in ~/ondemand/data/sys/dashboard/batch_connect/sys/jupyter/output/$session/connection.yml for the autogenerated password. I was thinking that most users would close the Jupyter session and start a new one when they are ready, but I find this is not always the case and I find that people are logging out and coming back later.
How are other sites handling this? I was thinking, is it possible that when Jupyter notebooks is launched and users see the Interactive Apps menu with the “Connect to Jupyter” button, can I edit that text to add a note in saying "If you log out, your autogenerated password for Jupyter is in /path/to/connection.yml ? If so, where would I find the file to edit?
I was also thinking of adding a note to manifest.yml so people see the note about the password before they submit the job, but I do think it may have a lesser chance of being skipped over and ignored if I put a note actually somewhere in the interactive session box under “My Interactive Sessions”. Any other ideas are appreciated as well.
