Logging in and Logging out

Currently, you do not need to log in in order to view data (we plan to add features allowing Privileged Users to modify the security settings for different operations). However, you do need to perform other database functions.

To Log In:

Select the Login link from either the navigation bar or the Laboratory Main Menu. You should be automatically returned to the Laboratory Main Menu. The current user is displayed in the footer of every page. The navigation bar should also be modified to display the Log Out link rather than the Login link.

To Log Out:

Select the Log Out link from either the navigation bar or the page footer. A message should be displayed noting that you have logged out.
