Troubleshooting

You can verify if your Trinity username has been provided with access to the eScience Certificate service by using the Whoami service from Heanet. After successfully logging in to this service you should see a statement that confirms the following:

'entitled to use services with the following special entitlements urn:mace:terena.org:tcs:escience-user;urn:mace:dir:entitlement:common-lib-terms'

If you do not receive that notification then your username has not yet been provided with access to the eScience Certificate service.
