This page will give you the information concerning discontinuing your NCCS accounts. This includes disabling your NCCS user ID, data disposition at project end-of-life, and/or closing your computational projects.



// DISABLING YOUR NCCS USER ID

Ready to discontinue your access to NCCS computing resources? Follow these steps to disable your NCCS user ID:

  1. Remove your data from NCCS systems

  2. Request user ID deletion

DATA DISPOSITION

Before having your NCCS user ID disabled, you are expected to transfer your data off of HEC resources in accordance with your computational project’s data management plan. (Contact your principal investigator if you have questions about this plan.)

All data should be removed except for curated datasets housed in the NCCS data collection that have been made available to other users for research purposes.


REQUESTING ACCOUNT CLOSURE

Email NCCS’ User Services Group to request account closure.

Alternatively, you may personally request your user ID deletion in IdMAX:

  • Request the removal of the "NCCS Application" from your NASA Identity, or

  • During the annual revalidation of your NASA Identity (email), request the removal of the "NCCS Application."

// COMPUTATIONAL PROJECTS/PI’S

If a Principal Investigator (PI) is not awarded an allocation for a fiscal year, use of a PI’s computational project is automatically disabled as of October 1st. A PI may reach out to the NCCS to confirm whether their computational project is being discontinued, and either begin data removal, or consult the HEC eBooks concerning a new allocation award.

Computational projects may be reenabled once an allocation is awarded by the HEC Allocation Authority.
