This page explains how to create a a Collaborative Organisation (CO) using one of the three group management systems available via the eduTEAMS Service.
This following instructions are aimed at persons that would like to create a CO. By following the instructions below, you will have created a CO in one of the three Membership Management Systems that eduTEAMS provide. You will be able to invite users to groups and you will be able to use this group membership information on own services for access control and authorisation purposes. The eduTEAMS service is usable by users with an eduGAIN-enabled federated account, typically a university account. It is however also possible to use eduTEAMS without such an account, via a social identity (e.g. Google, Facebook) or an ORCID account.
