I see the Slack link off the community page https://www.openmainframeproject.org/community .
https://slack.openmainframeproject.org/ , of course, wants a security principal in email format, which is different than what OMP uses for authentication.
- I tried my OMP ID @ openmainframeproject.org … did not appear to work. The email Slack says to look for did not show up at the email associated with my OMP ID.
- Following the “sign in” link to see what I learn from that, it also wants an email (no surprise). Below the credentials prompt, it also says “If you have an @linuxfoundation.org email address, you can create an account.” Which is a mildly interesting statement (if I already have one, I can create one; if I don’t, ???).
I’m sure as heck not giving Slack’s prompt “trusted” credentials like those from the email associated with my OMP ID just to test what it does (I don’t know if I’d ever trust a 3rd party app with them).
So, helpful admins, what is your intended course through this hurdle?
