Most Forge repositories for published specifications are public. This means that anyone can access, read and download them. However, for many other actions - such as making a CR - you are required to log in. This guide explains how to do that.
Use your EOL (ETSI Online) username and password. These are the same credentials you use to log in to the ETSI Portal. So if you have ever contributed a document, you already have the credentials you need to make changes in the Forge!
You are now logged in. Congratulations!
Step 3 (Optional) - Update your profile
If you have never logged in before, the ETSI Forge will have automatically created a new Forge profile for you. To do this, go to your (Profile page](https://forge.etsi.org/rep/profile), which can be found on the drop-down menu in the top right corner now you have logged in.
Editing your profile allows you to:
Set your full name. This is the name that people will see when you do things on the Forge, such as commit changes or raise issues.
Set your commit email address. This will be used to notify you when things happen, such as your commit failing an automated test, or someone commenting on an issue you have raised.
Set your avatar. This allows you to set a picture for your profile. Because pictures are fun!
