When setting up or trouble shooting your LFID so you can Connect to the Wiki or JIRA

Step-by-step guide

How to create an LFID (watch quick 1.5 min video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EEc4JRyaAoA)

1. Visit https://identity.linuxfoundation.org/
2. Select "I need to create a Linux Foundation ID"
3. Choose a username, add an email and password. Do not use any of the social login links.
4. Input your first and last name
5. Click "create new account"
6. Check your email and validate the account
7. Save your username and password so you don't have to login again! Your username = your LFID. Remember that your email address is not the same as your username.

Why do I need an LFID? This allows you to:
-Browse through the mailing list history on groups.iohttps://lists.hyperledger.org/groups
-View, edit and add content to the Hyperledger Wiki.

Save them for both sites and you'll only log in once!

  1. From my experience, this line here is wrong: 

    >  while you can always view the wiki without logging in, if you want to make changes you'll need to login with your LFID username and password. 

    Am I doing something wrong or should I update the above page?

  2. You can view the wiki as Anonymous.   But Anon is not given permissions to edit.  If your page cannot be viewed by Anon then there is a permissioning issue. Felipe Faraggi

  3. Ah no, you're right Silona Bonewald . I mixed it up with the anon accessing the chat channels.
