In order to enable an iCal export link, your account needs to have an API key created. This key enables other applications to access data from within Indico even when you are neither using nor logged into the Indico system yourself with the link provided. Once created, you can manage your key at any time by going to 'My Profile' and looking under the tab entitled 'HTTP API'. Further information about HTTP API keys can be found in the Indico documentation.
Additionally to having an API key associated with your account, exporting private event information requires the usage of a persistent signature. This enables API URLs which do not expire after a few minutes so while the setting is active, anyone in possession of the link provided can access the information. Due to this, it is extremely important that you keep these links private and for your use only. If you think someone else may have acquired access to a link using this key in the future, you must immediately create a new key pair on the 'My Profile' page under the 'HTTP API' and update the iCalendar links afterwards.

The usage of robot certificates in EGI.eu considerably grew in the last years and, nowadays, this trend doesn’t seem to stop. A robot certificate can be used by many real users but EGI.eu doesn’t have any information on these. Indeed, currently, the accounting tools don't know anything about the real user behind a robot certificate. This issue doesn’t allow EGI.eu to know the real number of e-infrastructure users and, to bypass this problem, we have to periodically asks portal managers for the list of users registered in a portal.
Some months ago EGI.eu started an analysis to find a way to automatically account the users behind robot certificates. A possible solution was identified and it is currently under testing. However, considering that only the web portals have the information on the real users, this solution requires an update on the portal side too.
For this reason EGI.eu is organising a web meeting where involving the web portal providers. The idea is to collect feedbacks and start a discussion to understand if we can adopt it as official EGI solutions for the accounting of robot certificate users. Furthermore, free time-slots are available for people willing to present any other possible solution to resolve this issue.
