Signing up/Logging in with Globus

FaceBase requires a FaceBase Account before you can download data. FaceBase uses Globus Groups to securely manage permissions for the FaceBase Data repository.

Step 1: Click the "Sign In" link

The navigation bar includes a Sign in link - or you can click here.

Step 2: Choose how to log in

When you click the link, you’ll see a Globus login page where you choose your identity provider. In the dropdown box, start typing one of the following and log in accordingly:

  • Your institution's name to log in using your credentials (for institutions participating in the InCommon federation)
  • "Google" to log in with an existing Google account.
  • "ORCID" to log in with your ORCID iD

If none of the above options is available to you, you may create your own Globus ID username and password via the link below the dropdown field "Didn't find your organization? Then use Globus ID to sign in." Follow the instructions.

Sign up page

NOTE: If you see a page like the screenshot below and have an account you've used before with Globus, go ahead and click "Link to existing account". If not, click "No thanks, continue." (Note that if you have logged into Globus before and login with the same credentials, you’ll skip directly to Step 3.)

Linking accounts

Step 3: Complete short signup form

A page appears asking you to complete your signup by providing your organization, how you intend to use your account, agreeing to terms of service, etc.

A consent page appears. Click "Allow" to continue.

You will now see your FaceBase Accounts page. At this point your application has been sent to the FaceBase Administrator for approval and you’ll receive an email notification that your membership is pending.

Once the administrator approves your application, you’ll receive email confirmation that your membership has been approved.

You can now go back to the FaceBase Data Browser and log in to download data.
