    Thanks for this!

    I previously had linked to my Terra Profile: NHLBI Biodata Catalyst Framework Services, NCI CRDC Framework Services, & NHGRI AnVIL Data Commons Framework Services. These links expired. The "Renew" link appears, but following this link in either Firefox or Chrome does not allow me to renew.

    I think this may have to do with the migration of eRA Commons to using login.gov, which is required by all users by September 15, 2021. Any idea how I can now use my login.gov credentials instead of eRA Commons when renewing expired access?

    Cheers,
    John-Hanson

    John-Hanson Machado thanks for letting us know about the issue.

    A colleague was able to replicate the error after associating their eRA Commons account with login.gov. To resolve the issue, they logged out of eRA commons and refreshed the Terra profile page, then tried to renew the link in Terra again. Would you be able to see if it works for you? Thank you!

    Liz Kiernan thank you for your quick response.

    I could not see an option to log out of eRA Commons and my NIH account in the "Identity & External Servers" in the right pane of my profile, only a "Renew" option.

    I could, however, unlink the NHLBI BioData Catalyst, NCI CRDC Framework, & NHGRI AnVIL Data Commons, but when redirected by the link in Terra to enter my username and password, my login.gov credentials do not work here (login failed).

    I then clicked on "Trouble signing in?" and did not see login.gov as an option (not shown in images here). I also verified I had the correct login.gov username and password by going separately to login.gov and using those credentials to successfully sign in. What am I missing?

    Hi John-Hanson Machado,

    Renewing your access with login.gov credentials is currently not supported by RAS. Can you try signing in with your eRA commons account?

    Best,

    Hi,

    A student working with me does not have any dbGaP account.
    Is it possible for me to grant him access to my workspace even if it requires 'GTEx-dbGaP-Authorized' as authorization domain?

    Otherwise, it sounds like a hassle to request an NIH account + dbGaP access for every student in our lab, especially since dbGaP is not meant for this.

    Best,
    Florian

    Hi Florian Hölzlwimmer,

     

    You should be able to add your student as a data downloader so that he can access GTEx data: Assign Downloaders for dbGaP Data

     

    Best,

    Samantha
