Approving COManage Registrations

OSG is using a new identity management system called COManage. Initially, this system will be used for managing access to OSG staff-internal monitoring webpages at UNL, and managing access for OASIS logins.

User registrations must be manually approved by a COManage admin. Follow the instructions below to approve a user registration.


This page is for COManage Admins who want to approve user registrations. If you are a user who wants to register with COManage, go to the Registering for the OSG COManage page instead.

  1. Check for an email from saying "Petition for changed status from Confirmed to Pending Approval".

  2. Click the first link in the email.

  3. Log in with your institutional credentials. You should see a "View CO Petition..." page. The Status should be "Pending Approval".

  4. Verify that the application is legitimate. Ask someone affiliated with the site, VO, or the sponsor of a project to verify the applicant's affiliation. In the future, applicants will be asked to provide the contact information of such a person -- similar to our existing contact registration process.

  5. Click the "Approve" button. You should see "Petition Approved" and "Petition Finalized" on top. The Status should now be "Finalized".

  6. The user will get an email saying "Petition for changed status from Pending Approval to Approved".

    The links in the email are expected to be useless (the first link will give them "Permission Denied" and the second link will merely allow them to "acknowledge" that they received the email).

    If the user asks, reassure them that they are registered and no further action needs to be taken.
