Paul: GridFTP only works with X509 for authentication. Can be solved by moving to OIDC.

Discussion on the problem with Rucio not creating parent directories during uploads for most protocols (observed on DESY-DCACHE, as mentioned 2 weeks ago, before the current authn problem):

Paul and Frederic: Status of ticketing system and drop an email to Xavi.
