Steps to transition your account from to the GENI Portal and Clearinghouse

Create and configure your Portal Account

  1. Create a GENI account at GENI Portal. For detailed information look here SignMeUp (only step 1).
  2. Generate SSH keys in the portal. These keys are used for logging in to any resources your reserve in GENI. You can either upload your own public key, or let the portal create a pair for you.
  3. You will need to be a member of a project in order to reserve GENI Resources:
    1. If you were a Project Owner at pgeni follow these instructions
    2. If you were not a project lead, wait until a project has been created at the GENI Portal. Please email us at to let us know that you are waiting for the project.
  4. Once you are a member of at least one project you can configure omni, if desired. (See full instructions)

Project Owner / Lead Instructions

Once you have created an account at the GENI Portal, please wait until you receive an email that you have "Project Lead" privileges. This privilege means that you are able to create new GENI projects at any time. Once you are a Project Lead you can either recreate the pgeni project yourself or you can ask us to do so.

  1. If you would like help creating and populating your project please email with the name of the existing project you would like to transition.
  1. If you would like to create and populate your project yourself:
    1. After requesting to be a project lead and creating a project, ask the other members of your project to create an account following the steps above.
    2. Once your members have created their accounts, add these members to your project by either:
      1. Bulk add the members of your project (using the Bulk Add New Members button on the Slice page).
      2. Have each member request to join your project (using the 'Join a Project' button on the Home page).
