UQ Research Data Manager

Provides information about how to use the UQ Research Data Manager (UQRDM) to store and manage research data for research projects.

How to login as an external collaborator?

With the UQRDM, UQ researchers can give access to their project’s research data to collaborators from other Australian and international institutions, as well as industry partners. The UQRDM facilitates this access via the Australian Access Federation, eduGAIN, Tuakiri (NZ federation) and LinkedIn. 

External collaborators who have been invited to join a UQRDM project should follow these steps:   

1. Follow the link in the email invitation – you will be directed to a screen which asks you to choose an authentication method. 


The information below will help you to decide which login mechanism to choose; 

(a) Australian Access Federation (AAF) – Collaborators from other Australian institutions, including Universities should log in via the AAF. The AAF is a national service connecting research communities and higher education identity federations across Australia. If you are unsure whether your institution is in the AAF, please consult this list of institutions the AAF supports. 

(c) eduGAIN - Collaborators from international institutions should login via eduGAIN. eduGAIN is an international service connecting research communities and higher education identity federations around the world. Please note that not all countries and institutions are included in eduGAIN. To check if yours is included, please consult this list of institutions that eduGAIN supports.  If yours is not included, please refer to option c (Tuakiri) or d (LinkedIn). 

Unfortunately we cannot guarantee that all of the international logins will work. If you encounter difficulties authenticating with your institutional credentials, please contact ITS Support. ITS will then follow up with the relevant technical contact from that institution to try and get the login working.  

(c) Tuakiri - Collaborators from institutions within New Zealand should log in via Tuakiri. If you are unsure whether your institution is within this federation, please consult this list of NZ institutions that Tuakiri supports. 

(d) LinkedIn is available for any collaborators who are not affiliated with an institution in the AAF, eduGAIN or Tuakiri federations. LinkedIn may also be used by collaborators who are experiencing difficulties authenticating with their institutional credentials, due to a technical issue with the login.   

2. Select the authentication method by clicking on the relevant button. 

AAF/eduGAIN login

Click on either “Australia” or “International” and use the search button to find the relevant institution which you wish to authenticate with. Note that you will need to type the full and exact name of the institution (no acronym). 

Click on the relevant institution – you will then be re-directed to the institutional login page. Login with your institutional credentials. Note: If you receive an error message after entering your institutional credentials, please contact ITS Support with details, including screenshots of the error. 

 

Tuakiri login

Click on the relevant institution from the list of NZ institutions presented. You will then be directed to the relevant login page. 

LinkedIn login

Sign in using the email address and password with which your LinkedIn account was set up. If you do not have an account, you can create one by clicking on “Join LinkedIn”.
