SRE/SRE Team requests
(Redirected from SRE Team requests)
Here you can request help from the SRE team (Wikimedia Site Reliability Engineering), or one of its sub teams.
In the past the SRE team was called "Operations" (Ops) or "TechOps", which you may still find in a number of places.
Urgent issues
Urgent issues are generally imminent risks to site security, like compromised SSH keys.
The preferred way to contact SRE in such an emergency is to use our Klaxon app. Klaxon also shows you open alerts to see if somebody else already alerted SRE.
If you are unable to access or use Klaxon, you may choose one of the below alternatives. In that case, make sure to keep at it until you get confirmation that a member of the SRE team has received the message.
The majority of operations requests should be filed within the Wikimedia Phabricator installation using the #SRE project tag.
If you further refine your request using the below instructions, it will usually result in faster triage.
Access requests
Note Google Search Console and Bing Webmaster tools access requests is now handled by Core Experiences. See: phab:tag/search-console-access-request/ and Search_Console_Data
Domain requests
Hardware requests
Virtual machine requests (Production)
TL;DR. Click VM Requests and fill in the form. But please do read the following.
Kubernetes Service Requests (Production)
To implement a new service on or migrate an existing service to our production Kubernetes open a Phabricator task with the Service Operations team. In Phabricator title the task "New Service Request ABC" (where ABC is the service name) and tag it for team "serviceops". Examples can be found here New Task Example and any of the recent activity items can be helpful to get an idea of what information we are looking for.
Other Purchases: SSL Certificates, Support Contracts
All other requests for SRE purchasing of support contracts, ssl certificates, and other related items should be placed in the Procurement project
Mail aliases
Please note that mail aliases are not handled by SRE anymore. Mail aliases under the domain are handled by the OIT team. Please send a mail to to request one. Please note that if you are not staff, and require a mail alias, you should request it via your working group/team leads/technical mentor/staff.
