When you provide your iD and grant permissions to a trusted organization to add data to your record, part of the expectation is that the organization you are connecting to will continuously update your record automatically with information that it can validate and share.
ORCID supports long-lasting permissions, allowing you to grant trusted organizations access to read and update your ORCID record for up to 20 years, or until you revoke permission from your account settings. The trusted organization uses these long-lasting permissions to continuously update your ORCID record with new information in its system. We call this auto-update.
Auto-updates are key to achieving the ORCID mantra of enter once, re-use often. They save you time and can increase trust in data by enabling the automatic exchange of information between research systems and ORCID records.
