Using SUPR

Using SUPR

SUPR is the SNIC database containing information about users and projects. To use SUPR at HPC2N, you need your SUPR account linked to your HPC2N account. This is necessary in order to use projects you are a members of. SUPR is a self-service portal for users of all SNIC Centres. It is used for registering and updating contact info, applying for new projects, requesting membership in projects, and viewing statistics for the projects you are a member of.

Getting a SUPR account

  • Go to the SUPR login page
  • Register a new person in SUPR. (Only if you do not already have a SUPR account - DO NOT create double acocunts. Instead, reguest a new password or contact support@supr.snic.se to get help with accessing your existing SUPR person.)
    • If you are an employee or student at a Swedish university or other organization that is part of the SWAMID identity federation, you can authenticate using SWAMID. This is easy and fast, and all your data are automatically filled in. You sign in to your home university/organization to do this. At Umeå University, you do that with your CAS id.
    • Otherwise you can register by filling in all fields from scratch. Then click to create SUPR account. Then confirm the account by answering an email sent to the address you registered.
  • Accept the SNIC user agreement (link goes to the text of the agreement). Click "Handle User Agreement"
    • Accept by using SWAMID
    • Or if you don't have SWAMID, choose offline via Paper Form. Print out the PDF file, sign the form. Send it together with a photocopy of your passport to the address indicated in the PDF file. When you have received confirmation that the User Agreement has been accepted, login to SUPR again (may take up to a week, depending on mail). Now you can see that your SUPR account is functioning!

When you have a SUPR account, you can be added to projects or apply for a project. When you are in a project, you can apply for an account at HPC2N.
