The Catalyst Web Tools login process begins with a "where are you from" (WAYF) page. People who have a UW NetID can log in with a UW NetID. People who do not have a UW NetID can log in using a Google Account or a ProtectNetwork ID. If you have a UW NetID, it is recommended that you use that to log in. You can create tools only with your UW NetID, not with a Google Account ID or ProtectNetwork ID.
