If we have published a self-registration scheme for you at register.openathens.net then there may come a time when you need to make changes - maybe your organisation name has changed, or maybe you need to add or remove allowable email domains. This page covers what you can do yourself and what you would need us to do for you.

View the scheme web address and validation options

In the menu go to Management > Self registration settings

Update allowed email domains or IP addresses

  • Self managed
  • Applies from next user registration

This is managed via your organisation account ( ).

Go to the organisation tab and find the one or two whitelists for self-registration. IP addresses and email domains are one per line.

IP address examples:

123.201.30.45

123.201.30-31.*

(CIDR notation is not supported)

Email domain examples:

yourdomain.com

yourstaffdomain.net

(you do not have to enter the @)

Update default expiry date

  • Self managed
  • Applies from next user registration 

This is managed via organisation preferences (Preferences > Organisation) and can be set to anything from 1 to 60 months.

If your scheme allows the selection of sub-organisations then this setting can be different for each.

Update email text

  • Self managed in almost all cases
  • Applies from next user registration 

This is managed via email preferences (Preferences > Email), and the template used is 'Account created (activation)'. 

Update the text to suit your organisation and save. Do not copy and paste text directly from a word processor, and do not change the activation URL. 

If your scheme allows the selection of sub-organisations then this setting can be different for each.

  • Applies from next user registration
