 Login

Beamline scientists must have an account with NERSC in order to use this service. Information about NERSC accounts and allocations can be found at https://www.nersc.gov/users/accounts.

To use ALS Share:

  1. Click "Beamline Scientist Login".
  2. Select "NERSC" from the list of identity providers and log in using your NERSC credentials.
  3. Choose your beamline from the dropdown list, enter how many results you would like to be displayed, and click "Search".
  4. A list of the most recent proposals submitted to the selected beamline will appear. If you do not see the proposal you are looking for, try increasing the number of results.
  5. Click on the desired proposal. If no shared endpoint has been created for this proposal using ALS Share, a page with information about the proposal will appear.
  6. Edit or add to the displayed information if necessary. Don't worry about filling in missing ORCID iDs. These will autofill in a future version of this service.
  7. Click "Create Share". You will see a page with the results of the share and additional options.

Although an ORCID account is not required to receive shares through Globus, it can simplify the process if ALS Share is being used. Register for an ORCID iD at https://orcid.org/register.

To use ALS Share:

  1. Click "User Login".
  2. Select your institution from the list of identity providers and log in. If your institution is not registered with Globus, log in using your ORCID account.
  3. If you logged in using credentials from your institution, you will be prompted to link your ORCID account as a secondary identity.
  4. A page will be displayed with some helpful links. You may use these to access the Globus web interface or find additional information about Globus.
  5. You are now ready to receive shared data through Globus. When the beamline scientist associated with your experiment shares data with you, it will appear as a shared endpoint in the Globus web interface.
