Getting access to LabTrove

When you visit a Trove you may be able to view any open Notebooks that have been created. Any Notebooks that have restricted access are displayed with a padlock icon next to the name of the Notebook. In order to view these Notebooks, to create a new Notebook, or to create and edit a Entry you must be authenticated with the Trove.

Authentication for LabTrove uses one of the following three methods:

  • Local user identities and passwords
  • A central LDAP server
  • OpenID

If the Trove uses local user identities or an LDAP server for authentication you will see Username and Password fields when you click the Login button at the top left of the Trove home page. If the Trove uses OpenID for authentication you will instead see a dialog box asking you to choose your OpenID provider.

If the Trove that you want to use uses local user identities or a central LDAP server you will need to contact the administrator of the Trove to get access before you can use it. The administrator will either provide you with a username and password, or enable an account you already have to access the Trove.

If the Trove uses OpenID as the authentication method then you can usually log in using your ID and password from a provider of an OpenID account. OpenID is a system which allows a user to use an existing account to login to various websites using the same username and password. Providers of OpenID accounts include the following organisations:

  • OpenID
  • Google
  • Yahoo
  • AOL
  • MyOpenID
  • Livejournal
  • Flickr
  • Technorati
  • Wordpress
  • Blogger
  • Verisign
  • Vidoop
  • ClaimID

For more information about setting up an OpenID account, see OpenID.
