Can be explained:
- This site (https://dev.swift-project.org) is about swift development and bug reports
- The datastore (https://datastore.swift-project.org) contains the mappings and alpha users can download the swift development versions.
- The alpha downloads can be downloaded from https://datastore.swift-project.org/page/alpha.html
SSO means single sign on, you do not need an extra username/password but you can use your VATSIM credentials.
Do a simple test, try to login to https://forums.vatsim.net
If SSO does not work with you?
- If not, there is a problem with your VATSIM credentials - you need to clarify with VATSIM.
- If this works and not with datastore, let us know
- Other hint: if you have a 6 digit VATSIM id, try to add a leading 0: 123456 -> 0123456
