  1. Registering as a PL-Grid user: please consult the Registration steps section of the user manual (EN) or Podręcznik użytkownika (PL)
    1. if you are a foreigner, be prepared that you will need your Polish collaborator to confirm your identity - for the PL-Grid operatives to contact the correct person for the confirmation, you will need to obtain the so-called OPI number from that person
    2. alternatively, you may try to look that person up in the Polish science people database (Polish language only, I'm afraid) to obtain the needed OPI number
    3. in case you are a Polish scientist, but you do not have your own OPI number, the one of your supervisor's will suffice
    4. finally, your own OPI  number is enough, if you have one.
  2. Requesting a certificate - again, please follow the user manual (for English version, or follow the Aplikowanie, rejestracja i użycie certyfikatu section in Polish version of the manual) for detailed instruction on how to automatically obtain your own PL-Grid certificate. Here, you will be asked to supply a certificate guard passphrase - please remember what you type as you are going to need it later on.
  3. Requesting access to services; you will need to activate access to two services (you will find it inside Katalog aplikacji):
    • "Dostęp do klastra ZEUS" (you will find it inside the "Moje Konto" tab - just click the "Aplikuj o usługę" button)
    • "Diagnostyka molekularna (Galaxy Server)" (the same tab, just slightly below under the "Platforma dziedzinowa: Medycyna Spersonalizowana" section - also click the "Aplikuj o usługę"  button)
  4. Both services should be activated automatically for you, in a couple of minutes, and you will be informed of that fact by an e-mail. Then you are ready to navigate to  in order to start your first Galaxy session.

  5. The service will use the infrastructure resources grant you have set as your default (it might be your personal resources grant).


titleTired of the two-step login?

You can speed up the login procedure a little bit. During the certificate generation step of setting up your PL-Grid account, you should have received your certificate in the form of a file (you can recognize it by its ".p12" extension). You may wish to import that certificate file to tour own browser . That way your browser will deal with the second step of the procedure for you.
