Activation of the CERN Computing account
A primary CERN Computing account and a CERN e-mail address will be automatically created for you upon CMS registration.
To activate your account, send an email with a copy of your passport to the Service desk: email@example.com or create a ticket in the service desk portal Account Activation.
After validation, you have 5 days to change your password and to follow the Computing Security course or your account will be disabled.

To close a computing account

To keep a computing account after the closure of a USER contract
In order to keep your computing account active please ask your Teamleader to not set you as Ex-member in the CMS database.
The secretariat is in charge of closing the CMS participation so if we don’t receive any information from your teamleader to set you as ex-member, the computing account will remain active.
