At this point , the technical process is done and it is important to realize that the service will not be connected until the invitation to connect has been approved by the 'SURFconextresponsible' person. This person will want to know who initiated this at their institution and will assess the attributes that are released. Make sure you have the contact details of the persons with whom you have had contact at the institutions at hand, name and email address. We will refer to them in the connection request. This speeds up the connection processthe institution (Identity Provider) needs to be connect to your service. This requires some action from our side as well as the institution. Generally, if we know which institutions are going to use the service, we will inform them to release the requested attributes. Keep a list at hand with the institutions you want to connect to as well as contacts, name and email, we can refer to when sending the connection invite. This speeds up the process considerably.
