Open OnDemand - How to Access
Open OnDemand is a suite of software that provides a graphical web interface to HPC resources and other interactive research computing applications. The purpose of this document is to demonstrate how to access the Open OnDemand software at CCAST.
1. Navigate to https://ondemand.ccast.ndsu.edu in a web browser. You should be redirected to the NDSU Central Authentication System (CAS). Enter your NDSU username and password (the same you would use to login to a campus computer). Note: You will need to be a CCAST user to access Open OnDemand. If you are not already a CCAST user, apply for an account at https://ccast.ndsu.edu/forms/account-application/.
If you are enrolled in DUO MFA, you will be prompted for a second factor.
2. Once logged in, you will be taken to the dashboard page. This page contains the menu of available tools as well as any message, updates, or information intended for all users.
