dbGAP whitelist for controlling access to CPTAC project data

mnoblemnoble Broad Institute of MIT & HarvardMember, Broadie

My understanding is that for TCGA and TARGET studies in dbGAP FireCloud consults a whitelist to determine who is authorized to see the controlled-access data within FireCloud workspaces. A few months back we asked for this whitelisting procedure to be extended to also grant access to controlled data within the CPTAC3 study at dbGAP, but I'm not sure how far it's gotten because (as someone else noted to me earlier today) there does not seem to be mention of CPTAC3 controlled access data within recent FireCloud release notes. I'm not even sure whether the CPTAC3-specific whitelist has been obtained yet, so this post is an attempt to understand the current state of this enhancement: specifically,

1) has the CPTAC3-specific whitelist been obtained from dbGAP?
2) if so, will it be regularly updated in the same manner that the TARGET and TCGA whitelists are (hourly?)
3) and how can I use (or verify that it's at least "usable") in FireCloud?
