How to integrate your onboarded service with the EOSC AAI?

Welcome to this course on the EOSC Authentication and Authorisation Infrastructure (AAI). It is intended for service providers who have onboarded services to the EOSC Marketplace and would like to make it easy for users to access them without having to log in at multiple domains or using multiple sets of credentials. If a service is integrated with the EOSC AAI, users will be able to access it using an academic or social account that they already have.
