    11= Authorization scheme overview
    22
    3 As different data policies and terms of use apply to the datasets stored at the ECOMS-UDG, a fine-grained user authorization scheme has been implemented, based on different access roles which are provided under request.
     3As different data terms-of-use  and policies apply to the datasets stored in the ECOMS-UDG server, a fine-grained user authorization scheme has been implemented using the  Santander MetGroup THREDDS Administration Panel ([http://meteo.unican.es/tap TAP]), which allows user registration and data access authorization for a number of EU-funded projects and initiatives.

     6In all cases, dataset access is conditioned to the acceptance of the particular usage terms and conditions.

    58== Access to restricted datasets
    69
    7 Dataset availability is a function of the group to which the applicant belongs to. Currently there are four groups defined. Three of them correspond to the different FP7 projects conforming ECOMS ('''EUPORIAS''', '''SPECS''' and '''NACLIM'''), and therefore applicants belonging to any of these groups can request an enrolment in the corresponding project(s) he/she is (officially) participating.'
     10Dataset authorization is organized in groups, which correspond to the different FP7 projects conforming ECOMS ('''EUPORIAS''', '''SPECS''' and '''NACLIM''') for the case of the ECOMS-UDG data. Therefore applicants belonging to any of these groups can request an enrolment in the corresponding project(s) he/she is (officially) participating.
    811
    9 Enrolment in any of these 3 groups is subject to explicit approval by project leaders in each case, and therefore group acceptance is not immediate, and may take some time. Acceptance is always confirmed via email to the applicant.

    11 Membership to any of these three groups grants access to restricted datasets (ECMWF's System4 seasonal/annual forecasts).

    1417== Access to public datasets
    1518
    16 A fourth group, ('''PUBLIC''') has open access characteristics, and therefore project membership is not required in this case. Thus, users external to ECOMS can also apply, being the access automatically given in this case. Currently, three public datasets are available in this group: WATCH Forcing Dataset ERA-Interim (gridded observations), NCEP-NCAR (reanalysis) and CFSv2 hindcast (seasonal forecast).

    2222= Registration process
    2323
    24 In order to obtain a user account there are two possibilities: Users can register at the THREDDS Administration Panel ('''TAP''') and fill a registration form or register through their !OpenID.
    2524
    26 == Regular Registration
     25Users can [http://meteo.unican.es/tap/register register] at TAP filling in the required information (please also specify the ''institution'' and ''intended usage'' fields). Alternatively, we are working on a new option to register using the the user's !OpenID (e.g. from ESGF), explained below.
    2726
    28 Users can [http://meteo.unican.es/tap/register register] at TAP filling in the required information (please also specify the ''institution'' and ''intended usage'' fields).
    2927
    30 == !OpenId Registration
     28= Data authorization: Groups and Datasets
     29Membership in new groups can be requested from the ''My groups'' section of your home menu. An agreement window will show the terms of use of each of the included datasets which must be accepted before saving.

     33The currently authorized datasets can be seen in the "My Datasets" section.
     34
     35== Anex 1: !OpenId Registration
    3136
    3237Users will be able to register at TAP through !OpenId in September. At that time, ESGF IDP's will be updated to a fixed version which allows retrieving !OpenId data safely. Nevertheless, there is a new login page available because our implementation is done. Login form is splited in two main tabs(!User/Password and !OpenId). This means that users will be able to login both !Username/Password and !OpenId. OpenID login does not require clicking any registration button. Users have to enter their !OpenId and click the login button. If the !OpenId is not registered yet (First login attempt with that !OpenId) a registration form will be shown.
     
    3843As users can see there is a new feature at the top of the form, the !OpenId link account.
    3944
    40 === !OpenId link account
    4145For those users who are already registered at TAP this new feature has a considerable relevance. TAP registered users can link their existing account to their !OpenId just by filling their username and password. Nevertheless, it is necessarily to follow the mentioned process and it is not possible to go directly to the link page due to security reasons.

    4549If submit is successful no more steps are required. Users have to go to the login page and log in at TAP with their !OpenId.
    46 
    47 
    48 = Request a group
    49 Then, group acceptance roles can be requested from the ''My groups'' section of your home menu. An agreement window will show the terms of use of the data which must be accepted before saving.
