Pilot overview


As of March 2017, a large number of pilots have been prepared and lined up as part of the AARC SA1 activity. We assessed the suitability of many different components to handle common issues experienced in R&E. Topics range from handling guest users, managing attributes, to performing token translations. A detailed overview of all components piloted is available here:
