If you are new to Software & Services Registration read Getting Started below.
Once you have software registration access and have logged in to the RSP:
Register (if needed) the Vendor Software and Service
If you need additional Hosting Resources, Science Gateways, or Support Organizations defined, or have problems or questions registering software, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and mention "RSP software registration".
The Research Software Portal (RSP) enables research cyberinfrastructure (CI) users to discover operational software available on XSEDE or campus resources, through science gateways, and from other providers and operators. It also enables CI operators and developers to discover packaged software they can install and make operational for their users. The RSP software discovery interface is at https://software.xsede.org/xsede-software-discovery. This software discovery capability relies on a cross-institutional resources catalog that combines software information aggregated automatically from other catalogs and databases with software information entered manually using the RSP Software & Services Registration capability.
If you have a local software catalog you can use XSEDE's Information Publishing Framework (IPF) to publish your software into the cross-institutional resource catalog. If you don't have a software catalog, you can manually register software using the RSP Software & Services Registration capability. To request access to this capability fill out the Request Software Data Entry Access form. Once you have access you will be able to register:
Besides registering specific software packages or operational deployments, the RSP supports registering Vendor Software and Services information, which are the global attributes of software such as the vendor, description, and tags/categories. By linking specific software packages or operational deployments to a Vendor Software and Service, the vendor information doesn't have to be repeated for each package or deployment, and software discovery results can link all the packages and deployments of the same software together.
Registered packaged and operational software can also reference:
When requesting access to the RSP Software & Services Registration capability you should identify the support organization, hosting resource, or science gateway for the software so that RSP administrators can define them and you can reference them.
