Portal project setup

To set up a project on the BioMedIT portal (https://portal.dcc.sib.swiss/), the Project Leader needs to contact the BioMedIT support to request a portal project.

The authoritative BioMedIT documentation (mainly WI-004 BioMedIT Portal User Management, WI-011 Assigning user roles on a project, and SOP-003 User Management SOP) describe the process in detail. In brief, before being added to a prospective project, the Project Leader and Permissions Manager need to log in to the BioMedIT portal at https://portal.dcc.sib.swiss/ (authenticating with a SWITCH edu-ID account; also see GL-002 Creating a SWITCH Edu-ID) and create a portal user account. Then the Project Leader can request a portal project at biomedit@sib.swiss with the following information:

  • Project PI
  • Project users: Including roles that are already determined
  • Project's full Name
  • Project's alias name (if any)

After the portal project has been set up by BioMedIT, the Project Leader and Permissions Manager can add further users and roles (such as the Data Manager), at the portal directly (see WI-011 Assigning user roles on a project).

It is recommended to take the SPHN/BioMedIT Data Privacy and IT Security Training before working with sensitive data in the BioMedIT network.
