Sign up for a FaceBase account with existing credentials
Published 19 October 2016
The FaceBase Hub is implementing the final update to the authentication system for the FaceBase Data Browser to give new users the option to sign up for a FaceBase account using an existing ID (i.e., campus, NIH or Google logins) instead of needing to create yet another new account.
Note that our account management system is based on Globus Auth. These changes will allow us to take advantage of more options that Globus provides for logging in to FaceBase.
On Wednesday, October 19th, we will deploy an update to the account management software. As a result, when signing up for a FaceBase account, new users will be able to select one of the many supported identity providers (from InCommon and Google). This will create an account request which will be forwarded to the FaceBase Hub for approval.
All current users will still be able to use your existing FaceBase account using the “GlobusID” option. You may also link your current GlobusID to another trusted ID.
