All CRBS CVS users:

We are in the process of moving authentication for our CVS server from individual logins to our CRBS SSO system. This change will allow you to use the same username and password that you use for Confluence, Jira, SVN, etc to access our CVS repositories. This also means that, after this move, a CRBS SSO account will be required in order to access CVS.


IMPORTANT: Please email a list of any modules you use.


NOTE: You may need to modify your CVS client(s)
  • If your CRBS SSO password differs from what you currently use for CVS, you will need to modify your client(s).
From an login/authorization standpoint:
  • users in the "neuro" group will be able to access NCMIR_CVS
  • users in the "camera-developers" group will be able to access CAMERA_CVS
  • access to the BIRN_CVS repository will be by individual module. Details will be distributed early next week.
  • No labels
