Guest Accounts

FAQ

What is a guest ID?
With guest IDs, external users can use sciebo to a limited extent. Guests can use the sciebo desktop or mobile clients for synchronization on their devices, but do not have a storage volume of their own and cannot share. Instead, guests use the storage volume of those sciebo users who share folders with read and write permissions with them. The guest's e-mail address serves as a sciebo ID.
How do I become a sciebo guest and how long can I use my guest account?
To become a sciebo guest you need a sponsor. Every employee with a regular sciebo account can act as a sponsor, using the my.sciebo portal for guest invitation and management. The duration of a guest account is 6 months, extensions are possible. A sponsor cannot delete a guest account, but stop a cooperation by canceling the shares. For detailed information please refer to the manual.
How can I log into sciebo as a guest?
You can log in via the desktop-client or the browser. The server adress is always https://gast.sciebo.de and not the server adress of the inviting university. The username is your mail adress used in the guest account.
How can I share with guests?
Guest IDs are independent of the participating institutions and are therefore managed on a specific server called gast.sciebo.de. Thus, sharing with guests takes place via guestID@gast.sciebo.de (Remote Share). Detailed informationen about the sharing process are available here.
I am a guest user and forgot my password.
Please ask your sponsor to reset your password.
How can I reset the password of a guest user?
You can find this function in the my.sciebo portal in the section "guest administration".
