Auth is a system that Test uses to tie your identity to your Eve Online accounts and grant appropriate access and permissions for Test's external services such as Discord, Mumble, Forums, and various other services and tools including this wiki.
Auth can be found at https://auth.pleaseignore.com
DO NOT CREATE MULTIPLE AUTH ACCOUNTS!
This is very important. If you create multiple Auth accounts it will break your shit and IT will have to fix it for you. If anyone other than TEST IT tells you to “just create a second auth account” then they are wrong. Do not do it. Seek advice from your corp leadership if you cannot get Auth to work.
In order to get access to Test Services you have to link your Eve Online character(s) to your Auth account so that we can see that you are a member of Test or an ally. This is done through an ESI Key provided by CCP.
If you require additional help adding all of your ESI tokens please reference the Adding Multiple ESI Tokens guide.
Note: If you ever reset your Eve Password you will also need to resupply your ESI tokens for the characters on the related account.
If for some reason you add your ESI key and you still can't access Test Services do the following
If Test Alliance is not listed in your Groups there, then for some reason Auth hasn't looked at your key or hasn't correctly assigned you to the right groups. (Note Test allies who are supposed to have access to Auth will be assigned to the Allies group, not Test Alliance)
Please note that CCP only allows Auth to check your key every 20 minutes, so if it still doesn't work try again in 20 minutes. If the problem persists please seek assistance from your corp leadership and/or HR.
After some concern with key usage by the Auth system, here is a statement of our key usage.
After you give the Auth system your ESI key it will pull all information that you authorized for the selected characters. For each character it will pull Character Sheet to determine what corporation the character is in. It will check once every 24 hours and will perform the request from 188.8.131.52.
ESI information is updated at least once every 24 hours, the 184.108.40.206 server acts as a cache for multiple auth services (including the forums) so you may see multiple requests during the day.
Auth will pull other documents from ESI, but they are special cases and people who this affects will be informed outside of this tutorial. If you are not a Director of a corporation related to TEST then you have nothing further to worry about.
If you are a member of Dreddit, adding a Reddit account is required. For Blues and other TEST members it is optional.
To add your Reddit account:
If everything was OK, you'll be took back to your profile page with a new entry for your reddit account. Please note reddit accounts can't be deleted and are bound to the account forever.
