  1. Create a new CCR account,
  2. Change your password
  3. Reset your password if it was forgotten,
  4. See when your password expires and what groups your account is in (account information tab)
  5. Upload your public SSH keys to allow for password-less logins to CCR machines
  6. Enable two-factor authentication for the identity management portal
  7. Setup API keys to use with Lake Effect research cloud


NOTE:  All other tasks related to your CCR account and access to resources are handled through Coldfront - the CCR subscription management portal.

Instructions for changing your password in the identity management portal




Once logged in, users are presented with information about their user account, including the date their password expires, the email address we have on record for the account, and what UNIX groups the account is a member of.  On the left hand side of the window, there are links to change your existing password, upload SSH Public keys, configure two-factor authentication, manage your one-time tokens for two-factor authentication, and create API keys for the research cloud.
