The ELIXIR Authentication and Authorisation Infrastructure (AAI) enables researchers to use their home organisation credentials or community or commercial identities (e.g. ORCID, LinkedIn, Google) to sign in and access Galaxy.


If you are new to the European Galaxy server, you can click the ELIXIR button to login in via the AAI infrastructure.
