In the unfortunate event of an end user from an OpenAthens organisation abusing your service:
We can help the user’s organisation identify the person
If you’re not already in touch with the subscribing organisation we can put you in touch with the relevant person
What we’ll need to know is:
The targetedID of the user in question
The organisation they’re from
An example of a date and time the user signed into your site (to the minute is ok)
If you can’t contact the right people at the organisation, log a call with our service desk saying you need to have an organisation identify a user who has misused a resource.
