If you’ve already signed up to use the Globus Web App, you can link another identity so you can use that to login and perform actions within the Globus Web App. If you haven’t signed up yet, you can create a new account by following these instructions.


Log in to Globus and navigate to the account page. Click on "Add Linked Identity" in the upper right.

Link to an existing account

Select the identity provider you’d like to link from the dropdown and click "Continue".

3. Log in on your organization’s login page

You will then be redirected to your organization’s login page (Google in this example). Authenticate as you normally would with the given provider. Depending on the organization you choose, you may encounter a screen that Globus is requesting access to your account information (in this example, Google has a page that states: "Globus would like to:").

4. Authenticate with your primary identity

As an extra security measure, Globus will prompt you to authenticate with your primary identity before completing the linking.
