6. DaCHS Registry Configuration

The Registry is the Information System of the Virtual Observatory (the yellow pages where all the services are registered). We describe a way to register your "authority ID" (description of the authority managing your resources) and the services provided by DaCHS. This operation shall be done only once. New services will be registered automatically.

First you need to create an identifier for your naming authority ID ivo://my_organization 

The service identifier would then be: ivo://my_organization/my_institute/my_team/my_service/epn 

This ID will appear on all data service provided in the VO, This construction will also simplify the search of resource coming from a specific institution or project, so take some time to construct it

Others information will take place in the file /var/gavo/etc/defaultmeta.txt
