UmbrellaID technical training

We are pleased to announce that PaNOSC, in the frame of work package 6 – EOSC Integration, and in collaboration with the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) and GÉANT will offer a one day umbrellaID technical training to the Photon and Neutron community. The workshop will take place remotely on the 4th of February from 9:30 to 17:00 (CET).

We are currently preparing UmbrellaID for the EOSC era, the technical architecture is evolving, new functionalities are being added and policies/organisations need discussions and sometime revisions. The aim of this training workshop is to share the recent technical and organisational developments and ensure that the IT professionals of the PaN community are at ease with the concepts, processes and technologies in use, and are eventually able to actively participate in the evolution of our community AAI.

Participant preparation note regarding the “keycloak hands on” session (13:30-15:15):

In order to get the full benefit from this session, participants need to have access to a Linux machine (one per lab/RI, VM will be perfect) and are guided in installing keycloak. This machine should have access to the internet and should be accessible from the internet (ideally direct access, but HTTP proxy and reverse HTTP proxy are also valid scenarios to get these access). DNS resolution should be in place and should be identical from everywhere (I.E. the machine should be referenced with the same domain name from the RI/lab intranet and public internet network), you also need to have a valid X509 server certificate. Once the keycloak instance will be set up we will link it to the umbrellaID acceptance environment to demonstrate the full flow.
