HTCondor is a specialized workload management system for compute-intensive jobs and it is supported by REANA alongside primary job execution backend Kubernetes and Slurm.


In order to use CERN HTCondor cluster you need to be authenticated using Kerberos. Generate keytab file and upload it and your CERN username as secrets to REANA.

Specifying compute backend

In order to execute certain steps of a workflow on the CERN HTCondor cluster you must specify htcondorcern as the step's execution backend in the workflow specification.

   # Serial example
      - name: reana_demo_helloworld_htcondorcern
        environment: 'python:2.7-slim'
        compute_backend: htcondorcern
            - python
