CAP for CMS analyses: Introduction


Most of the prerequisites should have been covered if you did the pre-workshop material.

At a bare minimum:

  • You should have a GitLab account
  • You should have internet connection ;-)


The CERN Analysis Preservation portal is a common place to preserve all the information around the physics analyses. This lesson will guide you through the portal, and show you how to start preserving your CMS analysis, add some input datasets and triggers, and connect it with some external repository containing your code.
