Manage user access

As a project leader or executive officer, you can manage the user access to your project from metacenter.no.

Existing user required

This guide shows how to manage user access for existing users.
If you are looking to add new users without an existing account, they need to submit a user application instead.

 

 

Step 1

1. Go to the front page of MAS, at https://www.metacenter.no
2. Use the link titeled "Admin login" to log in with Feide or OpenIdP

Step 3

Once logged in, use the top navigation and go to Projects - Projects.

Click the applicable title below to see the detailed instructions.

 

Adding users

 

Search for user

Note: The user you want to add must exist in our system already! If they don't have a user with us, please ask them to submit an user application to your project instead. (You will have to sign the application before we process it and grant access.)

  1. Search for the user you want to add.
    1. You don't necessarily need to fill out all of the fields, as long as you get an unique match. Hence, try with their e-mail first.
  2. Click "Lookup" to search for the user.

 

Add user

  1. When you get a result on your lookup, verify the user details to ensure that you're adding the correct person, then click "Add user" to proceed with managing the access.

Grant acess to resource(s)

When you have added the user to your project, you most likely want to give them access to one or more resources.

  1. Tick the checkbox under the respective resource you want to give the user access to.
  2. Save the changes by clicking the cog-icon behind the checkbox.

Manage access for existing user

 

Changing end date

If you want to set a new expiry date for an active access.
This removes the access to your project on the respective resource once that date occurs (midnight).

  1. Write a new end date in the same format (ISO 8601).
  2. Save the changes by clicking on the cog-icon behind the date field.

Give access to new resource

Note: Users will only get access to resources your project have an allocation on.

  1. Tick the checkbox under the respective resource you want to give the user access to.
  2. Save the changes by clicking the cog-icon behind the checkbox.

Remove user access

 

You can either remove access to specific resources, or access to the entire project.

Remove access to resource

  1. Remove the tick from the checkbox under the respective resource you want to remove access from.
  2. Save the changes by clicking on the cog-icon.

 

Remove user from the entire project

This will remove the project membership and access to your project on all resources.
Note that if you do this to your own user, you will no longer be able to manage the project. (If you did this by mistake, contact us on sigma2@uninett.no)

  1. Click the stop sign behind the respective user you want to remove from the project.
