TitleEduGAIN Global incident handling/support framework
Description

As national federations continue to join eduGAIN the problem of supporting users across federation boundaries will increase. When a user has an issue attempting to access services provided in another federation how it will be resolved in this global federation of federations. Issues the end user may experience include;

  • Understanding where the cause of the problem is;
  • Language barriers;
  • Service providers unaware that their services is available in other federations;
  • Services providers unwilling to provide support to users in other federations;
  • Global scale and time zone difference challenges

The development of a global incident handling/support framework. This framework would build on each federation’s user support strategies and seek ongoing support of the framework from federation through a memorandum of understanding.
