How tos for Users

Q: How can I login for the first time to the service after migration (11.4.2022)?

A: You can login to the service as you always do (eg. click on the login logo on the service). There will be a special process step when you log in for the first time after migration: you will be asked to accept the LS login Acceptable Use Policy (it is materially the same as the ELIXIR AAI one). You will also be asked to review all previous consents to transfer your personal data to the services you used through the ELIXIR AAI. 


Q: How should I proceed in case I received an email to follow “targeted id users”  instructions when login for the first time?

A: You got this notification because your account cannot be automatically migrated into the Life Science Login due to technical limitations on the side of your Identity Provider (home organization). 

  1. Please follow the link you have recieved in the email. You will be taken to a special application. 

  2. Log in twice with your home organization. After that, your account should be ready to be used in Life Science Login.

If you do not wish to use your home organization for login or in case of running into any issues, contact us at aai-contact(at)elixir-europe.org.

We kindly ask you to perform this action before the 8th of April.
