Changing Account Details

To configure your account options, click on Configure account on the Baskerville admin home page.

Changing your name and SSH key

The options to change your name and SSH key can be found under the Account item, in the menu on the left hand side of the page.

Changing your password

In order to change your password, click on the Password option, in the menu on the left, then enter your current Password into the appropriate box. Then you will need to enter your new password, then enter it again in the Confirmation box. You should avoid copy and pasting your password from elsewhere, in case you typed it incorrectly the first time.

How to View your Baskerville Project

  1. From the home page, click Me (username) from the menu bar at the top, or click the View my info link beneath the Logout button

  • the start and end date
  • the name of the site and QoS

Add or Remove Users from a Baskerville Project

From the Baskerville Project page, scroll to the Users section, which contains a button to add users and a button to remove users (see purple box in screenshot above)

Adding Users

  1. Click the + icon
  2. Enter the email address of the user you would like to add
  3. Click the Save project button
    1. For new Baskerville users an automated email will be sent to the user with joining instructions
    2. For existing Baskerville users no automated email is sent


Please check with a new user whether they have received an automated email and to check their spam folders. Occasionally emails don’t reach a user’s inbox due to aggressive spam filters. Contact us at if this happens.


A new user is required to set up 2 Factor Authentication (2FA) when signing into Baskerville for the first time. For security reasons, there is a time limit to scanning the QR code shown in the 2FA setup process. If a new user fails to scan this code in time, then refer them to and we will be able to manually reset their security token.

Removing Users

In the case where a user no longer has access to your facility, or the PI no longer wishes a user to have access to a specific Baskerville project, then you may remove a user from a Baskerville project.

  1. Click the – icon
  2. Uncheck the box next to the username of the user you would like to remove
  3. Click Save Project to save your changes


If the user is no longer a member of any Baskerville project, then their user home directory will be deleted. Once this has happened there is no way for any data in the user home directory to be restored. They will not receive any email notifications about this! Make sure you are certain that you want to remove this user and that they are aware of this process before removing them from the project.
