I’m trying to get access to a Mainframe using the COBOL Programming with VSCode Labs provider system suggested in the Getting Started.
I can’t seem to create an account on the OpenMainframeProject Slack as mentioned in the COBOL Programming with VSCode Labs Confirmation email containing my credentials.
Unfortunately I have to use the @Zih_COBOL app in the Slack to get the password to connect to the Mainframe from VSCode.
It seems signups are restricted to a number of email domains, maybe it’s a misconfiguration?
Hi @cappert - please try again now. Apologizes for the confusion.
Hi, I am having this same situation I can not access Slack to generate my password because it only shows that I can only log in with domain emails linuxfoundation.org, phoenixsoftware.com,contractor.linuxfoundation.org and
This should be fixed now - thanks!
Same thing is still happening. I don’t believe it’s fixed. I am trying to get into the slack channel, but I can’t work it out - it won’t work with my work address, my personal address and I don’t have an email address for any of those domains listed. Any ideas?
This is fixed now - sorry for this! The challenge is the Slack link expires after a while and we need to reset it manually; we will try to watch for this and change the link proactively in the future.
