Summary: This article provides a high-level summary of how the ScienceCloud Connection component is set up to handle authentication for ScienceCloud connectivity.
To execute a protocol on a Pipeline Pilot server, a user must authenticate as a valid Pipeline Pilot user on that server. Whenever Assay components connect to ScienceCloud, they must authenticate using the credentials of a valid ScienceCloud user. The Pipeline Pilot user and the ScienceCloud user can be the same user or different users.
When developing protocols, ScienceCloud authentication can be fully handled by using the ScienceCloud Connection component available in the collection.Extensive description and user guide for this component is provided in the article Connect to ScienceCloud with Project Data Components.
