My university department is updating the instance of sagemath that we use to 8.6. This will use the new Jupyter interface. I have two questions about the upgrade:

1) The old instance of sage we are running has many users each with their own notebooks. How do we migrate the multi-user environment to sagemath with Jupyter?

2) All of our sagemath users will need to migrate to using Jupyter. Is there a good tutorial for using sagemath in Jupyter? The documentation and tutorials in sagemath's website still are referencing the old notebooks.

thanks brett

multi-user jupyter means almost certainly setting up jupyterhub: .

Regarding question 2, I also recommend the User Interface Tour in the Help menu of the Jupyter notebook.

Regarding question 1, for a single user, you may list available legacy Sage notebooks:

sage --notebook=export --list

and you may export a legacy Sage notebook as a Jupyter notebook:

sage --notebook=export --ipynb=Output.ipynb admin:10

This is done automatically if one does:

sage --notebook=export

See the following help messages for more information:

sage --notebook --help
sage --notebook=export --help

Maybe this is useful for the multi-user setup, but I have no experience with such a migration.
