Thanks Greg.

1. Non-admin users with add permissions on a library are offered the option to upload from file systems path. Should this be restricted to admin users only?


Yes, this should be restricted to admin users only as access to the file system for all users could result in undesired security problems or other issues.


Has this also been fixed in the latest change-set or do I have to manually set an option to make this exclusive to admin users? I want to give users the ability to add data to their libraries but I'm not willing to do that until this option is removed.

Hi, I have notice a few problems which may or may not have been fixed in the latest distribution (I am yet to update) but wanted to make you aware.

2. If a user chooses the option "upload a directory of files" but does not have a folder with their username in the library upload directory they get a server error. Would be nicer to get a help message that says they are not set up for this method and to contact the Galaxy admin.


This issue was corrected in change set 4999.



3. If files are being uploaded to a library and I click on the manage jobs tab in the admin section I get a server error. This persists until the server is restarted.

I am not able to reproduce this behavior in the latest change set, which is 5053. This change set should be available in the distribution within a few weeks, or if you want to run the latest code you could pull directly from our development repo at:

https://<your account>@bitbucket.org/galaxy/galaxy-central

Keep in mind that the development repo is less stable than the distribution.




Thanks for your help!

Shaun
