HDF Cloud resources are available to users of the JSC HPC systems as well as users within the Helmholtz Data Federation (HDF). Depending on the channel through which you received the resources, you will have to authenticate either using the Helmholtz AAI or JSC’s LDAP server.

The "HDFCloud" must be among your enabled services in JuDoor in order to participate in this service. Please go to JuDoor → Connected Services → Make changes in order to enable your account for this.
