  • Developed a new protocol for DCo Portal user self-registration while preserving certain user screening and administrative features introduced on the original DCO Community Portal (Drupal Commons). The previous system, based on Drupal, could not integrate with the DCO Data Portal where all metadata ultimately resides.

    Implemented a custom user registration system that includes the ability for users to self-register, change their passwords and initiate a password reset. The new registration system allows administrators to verify candidate users' information and grant or deny account access to the user. All submitted information for approved users is pushed to the DCO Data Portal, making it immediately accessible by various visualization and discovery tools, including the DCO People Browser (http://deepcarbon.net/dco_people_browser), the DCO Participant Map (http://deepcarbon.net/page/dco-science-network) and various DCo Science Community and network based information displays.
