The article Using DocDB like a pro appeared back in May of this year, but a reminder may help new members of the ever-growing DUNE collaboration.
DocDB can be accessed via two different types of URLs, one of which is used for access by a shared group name and password, the other is used for certificate access.
The URL for group/password access starts with http://docs.dunescience.org:8080. The URL for certificate access starts with https://docs.dunescience.org:440. Most links from the DUNE at Work website into DocDB use the 8080 URL.
Most documents in DocDB are available to the entire collaboration, protected under the dune account. If you need the password, ask a colleague or send an email to email@example.com.
Or get a certificate that allows you to access dune-protected documents. DUNE recommends the CILogon certificate. If you already have a different certificate, check with firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow the instructions, be aware of the URL whenever you use DocDB, and you will find it very easy.
