The service is automatically enabled for members added to the group Structured members, and can be activated for other members by assigning the related permission in Management of Authorizations and Groups application.
From the sidebar menu, under Administration, select Digital signing of documents.
You will be provided with a panel that shows the three services you can access. To request a new certificate, go to the service Personal Certificate. An icon on the left will let you know if you already have a valid certificate active.
Active and History of Certificates
From the page, you will be presented with some brief details over your personal information and your current and previous certificates.
In order to request a new certificate, click on Generate new Certificate.
You will be prompted with some personal details to be confirmed - such as your Name, Surname, Department and email. If these details are not correct, please contact your Human Resources Department.
If everything is correct, confirm and request the certificate, you will receive a notification of the sent request.
Please note that the Certificate Request will be manually handled by a member of OpenStudio team. For this reason, 24/48 hours may be necessary to process your request. Once the request is completed, you will receive an email notification.
