COmanage is a collaboration management platform designed for virtual organizations. With customizable enrollment flows, clear audit trails, and clear APIs that allow for integration with a variety of collaborative applications such as wikis, mailing lists, and more, COmanage provides VOs with an organized yet simple interface for identity and access management.

This documentation focuses on the needs of a platform administrator, after the software has been installed. Application developers and advanced administrators will find installation and other more technical information in the COmanage Registry Technical Manual.

Scenario 3 - A Large Virtual Organization with Domain-Specific Requirements

Features: Single VO, enrollment processes include invitation signup, administrative/delegated signup, and conscripted signup; federated identity as well as IdP of Last Resort; apps include typical collaboration apps we well as domain specific apps, ssh key management, github access; need to demonstrate audit capabilities for grant reporting

Scenario 4 - A Large Research Group Managing a Collaboration with Multiple Partner or Subsidiary Virtual Organizations

Features: A hub-and-spoke model for collaboration, with a primary VO setting up the collaborations of smaller VOs; enrollment processes include self-signup, administrative/delegated signup, and conscripted signup; federated identity required; apps limited to typical collaboration apps such as a mailing list service and a wiki
