Account Requests

We are in the process of moving account creation to a new onboarding system named HiPPO (High-Performance Personnel Onboarding). Current systems supported on HiPPO are Farm, Franklin, and Peloton. Accounts on other systems are requested via web form. 

When generating a request for an account on a system, please have the following handy: your UC Davis CAS ID, email address, PI or sponsor ID, department information and your SSH public key.

For more information on generating SSH keys, please refer to: For more information about SSH keys in general, please visit Wikipedia.

Please note that after you send account request, a confirmation from your PI or sponsor will be required. Any request without PI confirmation will be not be accepted. 

Also please note that portions of this process, such as access to job queues and group storage associations still require manual intervention and take time relative to our workload. We are currently in the process of automating these tasks.

To request an account on Farm, Franklin, or Peloton, please create a request on HiPPO.
