CUAHSI Single Sign-On

HydroShare uses CUAHSI Single Sign on. This will allow users to maintain one set of credentials between ORCID and HydroShare. In future implementations, other CUAHSI data services will also be integrated with single sign-on. Users with email addresses ending in .edu, .gov, or .org will not need to provide justification for account creation. Users with other domains will be required to provide justification and get account approval. Once this is done you will recevie an email letting you know your account is active. 

Do I have to link my account to an ORCID?

No, users can maintain a set of credentials that are not affiliated with an ORCID, and use those credentials for CUAHSI single sign-on. 

Should I Link my Account to ORCID?

If you have an ORCID, we recommend linking your CUAHSI single sign-on to ORCID. This will mean that you always log into CUAHSI single sign on with your ORCID credentials. 

How will this impact my API password?

API passwords are no longer in effect, your HydroShare credentials will provide access to the API. 

Will this affect my access to other services? 

No, Linking your accounts will not affect your ability to use any other CUAHSI services, such as CUAHSI Jupyterhub or MATLAB Online. 

The following services will ultimately use CUAHSI single Sign-on Credentials:

  • HydroShare
  • CUAHSI Compute, JupyterHub, MATLAB Online
  • Hydrologic Information Systems (HIS)
