COmanage is an Open Source Project that is focused on streamlining digital lifecycle management for your populations. It is part of the InCommon Trusted Access Platform. In production, it consists of two tools: Registry and Match.

  • COmanage Registry is an identity registry with flexible enrollment and lifecycle management capabilities that helps you meet your identity management objectives using standardized tools and approaches. It can be used as a central person registry, a guest management system, or a collaboration hub for scholarly collaborations.
  • COmanage Match performs identity de-duplication in order to help minimize the creation of duplicate accounts for the same individual. It provides a heuristic-based system for matching identity records across multiple authoritative systems of record. Match can be used with Registry or as a standalone product complementary to your other tools.

This month we’re trying out an Australia-friendly time for our Open Office Hours. We hope you will join us for an interesting Topic Aperitif about how COmanage and CILogon are being leveraged in several projects in Australia. These projects enable streamlined information sharing and decision making by Data Access Committees, and bring deeper connections between people and the research results and artifacts that they work with.

Participate in the COmanage Community

Symbolic illustration of a group of people connected by gears. COmanage is a platform of open-source software that is used and supported by the community.  There are several ways in which this community connects, each listed below with links to more information. 

Community support is critically important to any open source project. The community drives the evolution of the software, supports its development financially and through in-kind support, and collaborates on the use cases that the software supports. We encourage you to join this community.



Ongoing support of the project is provided by Internet2 via the TIER Initiative and the InCommon Trusted Access Platform Program.
