Please I need help accessing the Slack Open Mainframe Project.
I'm beyond frustrated.
I'm new to IT, and I'm trying to learn COBOL by IBM course.
I received an email with how to access the system (COBOL Programming with VSCode Labs Confirmation).
The email says to :
"We are using Slack for system access questions and password issues:Click this link https://slack.openmainframeproject.org/ to add yourself tothe Open Mainframe Project Slack workspace. Within this workspace, add thecobol-programming-course channel."
However, Slack does not accept my Gmail email. It says "The email address must match one of the domains listed below. Please try another email." Then it says:
Don't have an email address from one of those domains?Contact the workspace administrator at Open Mainframe Project for an invitation."
I only have GMAIL and I'm stuck in this loop.
I really would like to take this course.
Thank you so much for any suggestions.
Sudharsana, can you assist Valeria?

Valeria, I just responded to your message 1 on 1 as well. Please try the link in the registration email again - it should work. The OMP team tells me the link was reset to ensure our learners can register and get access to the slack workspace.
Let me know if that does not work. Sudharsana
Thanks for your help.
I was able to get that part figure it out.
Still have not been able to access the first training file. The Zowe profile I created says "no database found" and "Error: The response from Zowe CLI was not successful". Not sure what I am doing wrong.
I seem to be having the same problem as well? Could you please help me out?
Please be informed that the problem is recurring as of September 2023. I have the exact same problem as described by Valeria Pimentel and the other member on this board.
I followed the link in the email from Zskills@us.ibm.com informing me that my account had been created. The link invited me to join the Open Mainframe Project on Slack.
When I tried to log into Slack with the Gmail account I used to register with IBM, I was greeted with the same error message as the first post. It looked like Gmail wasn't a possibility?!
As I had a Slack workspace associated with the email, I changed my email with IBM, and requested a new mainframe account. Alas, to no avail: I was once again greeted with "The email address must match one of the domains listed below. Please try another email." even though I was trying to use my @gmail.com account.
It is very unfortunate since I cannot get a password to log into my account on the mainframe and, therefore, cannot continue the COBOL tutorial on z/os that I was following.
Hi Marc and @Mahesh Gudelli,
Sorry for the inconvenience, it seems that the invite link used has expired. We will inform the Linux Foundation people so that they can fix the link.
In the meantime, please try this link: https://join.slack.com/t/openmainframeproject/shared_invite/zt-1gkhwtzsx-EZuJXgu05N67AWyalJJq_A
It should allow you to register for an account.
The slack link for OMP Slack workspace has been renewed and the link in your registration confirmation email should work. Please try the link again.
P.S: Hartanto - thank you so much for always helping our learner community.
How to connect to the OMP team. I was not able to figure out the issue.Thanks,Mahesh.
same problem what VALERIA PIMENTEL had not able to login
Here's a temporary link: https://join.slack.com/t/openmainframeproject/shared_invite/zt-1gkhwtzsx-EZuJXgu05N67AWyalJJq_A
Will reach out to the Open Mainframe Project staff so they can fix the original invite link.
