Signing into XNAT
NoteThis is the link to the UQ AIS XNAT. If you have been provided with a project specific XNAT link to use, use that one instead
Login in with the AAF Single sign-on button (shown below).
Follow the AAF login process for your organisation
If you encounter the following error, refresh the page 2-3 times. The login should progress
If the error remains after multiple refreshes, contact support.
After the AAF sign-in, you should be redirected back to XNAT (Example below)
There will be no projects listed when signing in for the first-time, as your user account would have just been created.
Proceed to to next section for setting up an XNAT project
Creating XNAT project
For UQ users, XNAT uses UQ-RDM HPC collections for storage allocation.
For any general questions about UQ-RDM, please refer to the library guides
NoteOnly one member of the project team needs to request for the project
Before creating an XNAT project, you’ll require a UQ-RDM HPC Collection
- HPC collections ends with -Q and a 4-digit numerical identifier (e.g. PROJ001-Q0189)
- Non-HPC collections end with -A (e.g. PROJ001-A0189) or -I (PROJ001-I0189)
To create a new UQ-RDM HPC Collection, proceed with the following
Open https://rdm.uq.edu.au/create-record and sign-in
Fill in the record as per your project details
For (6) Data Storage Options, select the second option (The project data needs to be mounted on UQ HPC facilities.)
Any other option will be incompatible with XNAT, requiring a new RDM request
REQUEST DATA STORAGE when complete
Move on to the next step after the RDM collection is provisioned
You should have an RDM collection name ready (e.g. PROJ001-Q0189)
Open a ticket with RCC support
Example below (replace __________ with your details)
Subject: Create XNAT project __________
Hello RCC support Can we create an XNAT project for RDM collection __________
The support ticket will inform you when the project is set up.
- An XNAT project will be created with the matching name (e.g. PROJ001-Q0189)
- An xnat directory will be created in the RDM collection for storing the XNAT data files
- Please do not write or modify anything under the xnat directory
XNAT Project setup typically takes around ~24 hours from ticket submission
An automated email from XNAT will be sent through when project is ready, and your user has been added
