Excerpt from the Web SSO service design document:

The Web SSO service will also include documentation for application users. This documentation will appear on the XSEDE User Portal in a form suitable for reference in application documentation. Key topics to be covered in the user documentation are as follows.

  • Recognizing the “Login with XSEDE” button
  • Choosing an IdP
  • How signing on (or off) affects other Web SSO applications
  • How and why to link identities
  • How to view your identity data and application permissions


There are comments for XCI-479 that can be viewed with XSEDE authentication.
