How to Access the EGI VMOps Dashboard

How to access the EGI VMOps dashboard

To access the EGI VMOps dashboard, you need to:

  1. Obtain a personal X.509 access certificate from a recognised Certification Authority, if you haven’t already got one.
  2. Join an existing VO, or create a new VO if none of the existing ones suits your purpose.
  3. Request the VM OPERATOR role, either during the registration process, in the VO in the description/comment section, or afterwards, by contacting the VO manager.
  4. Check whether your X.509 DN is available through the Distinguished Name attribute when logging in via EGI Check-in


  1. If not, then you should link your X.509 certificate to your EGI ID, by logging in to the EGI AAI registry and requesting the “Link new identity” option, as described here.
    • N.B.: You must select “IGTF Certificate Proxy” as the identity provider, when you are requested to re-login, in order to finalize the link.
    • If the process succeeds, proper access to the VMOps dashboard will be available by using any account linked to your EGI ID.
