Corporate and Institutional Users
Your institution’s name will display in the upper right corner if you have subscription access.
The two main options for access to OnePetro are through IP Access and Referral URL. Users that have access through their company or institution will see the name of that entity in the top right of the navigation bars. Individual users that are logged in to their personal account will also see their name in the same area.
To receive IP address validation, your IP address must be one of the “approved” addresses provided by your institution. Are you on a device that has access to your institution’s network? If not, that may be why are not getting access to the subscription. Users that have access through their company or institution will see the name of that entity in the top right of the navigation bars.
The easiest way to obtain your IP address is to visit, https://www.whatismyip.com. Ensure your IP address is one of the approved IP addresses with your institution’s subscription administrator.
If you register an individual account on OnePetro, and are authenticated using your IP at the same time you are logged in as an individual, your individual account will be associated with the subscription for 90 days. For 90 days you will be able to access your company subscription by logging into your personal account even if you are not on an approved IP address, after 90 days you will need to revalidate your subscription by visiting OnePetro from an approved IP address again.
IP Access and Proxy Services
OnePetro grants access to corporate/institutional subscriptions based on source IP address of traffic. For access to be granted we require your traffic to originate from a pre-registered unique IP address, or set of IP addresses that belong only to your corporation/institution.
Corporations/Institutions that take advantage of a cloud proxy service (Zscaler, McAfee, Netskope, etc.) may have their web traffic sent through a pool of shared IP addresses before it reaches OnePetro. The result is that OnePetro does not see a pre-registered unique IP but sees an IP that could be used by any number of companies that also use the same cloud proxy service.
OnePetro cannot add any of these cloud proxy shared IPs as options for corporate/institutional access. Adding these IP pools would result in any user from any company that visits OnePetro through that IP pool, to gain access to a subscription that they do not have rights to access.
If your company/institution uses a cloud proxy service, you will need to work with your service provider to ensure the traffic going to OnePetro comes from an IP that is unique to your company and can be pre-registered with OnePetro. These service providers may already have solutions in place for access to resources like OnePetro that require unique IPs to authentication, for example Zscaler users may need to set up IP anchoring https://help.zscaler.com/zia/about-source-ip-anchoring
If your company/institution is not able to send OnePetro a set of unique IP addresses, you will not be able to use IP authentication as an option to allow your users to access your subscription. In this case your company/institution should consider Referral URL access.
Referrer URL allows a company and/or institution to give its users access to the company’s subscription using a link to OnePetro (www.onepetro.org) that is placed on a secure website, such as a company intranet. The URL of the company’s intranet must be added to the company’s profile in OnePetro. When a user clicks the link to OnePetro from the company intranet page, OnePetro looks at the referrer URL to see if a matching URL is in our system and grants access to the company’s subscription.
In some cases, the referrer URL is not sent, is blocked, or is altered by a company’s firewall. If you are not sure what your referral URL is or are having trouble figuring out if your referral URL is being changed before it reaches OnePetro, you can temporarily add the following link to the same intranet page you have the link to OnePetro located. When you click the link, it will display the referrer URL that is being sent.
If you register an individual account on OnePetro, and are authenticated using a referrer URL at the same time you are logged in as an individual, your individual account will be associated with the subscription for 90 days. For 90 days you will be able to access your company subscription by logging into your personal account even if you are not coming from your company intranet, after 90 days you will need to revalidate your subscription by visiting OnePetro from your company intranet again.
