Migration of Globus accounts#

We are very soon going to migrate all VSC accounts from the old vub.ac.be domain to vub.be. This change impacts users that have already used Globus services. Data access in Globus will not be affected, but if you want to keep your existing bookmarks and personal endpoints in Globus, you need to take action as soon as possible.

Please follow the steps described herein to make your new Globus account using your @vub.be identity and then link it to your existing Globus account.


Existing Globus accounts should be migrated before August 16th

Part 1: Create your new account in Globus with vub.be#

  1. Go to https://app.globus.org

  2. Select Vrije Universiteit Brussel in the list of universities


    Ignore the old option VUB - IDP (Vrije Universiteit Brussel)

  3. Click Continue in the Welcome - You’ve Successfully Logged In screen


    Ignore the option in this page to link your old account

  4. Complete your new account: check your user data and terms of service and click Continue

  5. Click Allow on the requested permissions for the Globus app

At this point, you should be logged in with your new account in the Globus App.
