Hello,

I am interested in this "local upload file" tool. Can you please send the files to me as well.

Thanks.

Hi,

There is also another solution if you don't want let users being able to create libraries. We have implemented this solution in our local production server here at Institut Curie. We add a tool call "local upload file", that takes as entry parameters the name of the dataset, the type of file and the path to the file you want to upload. At the execution, the bash script behind will remove the output dataset created by Galaxy and replaced it by a symbolic link to the file (so you don't duplicate files). Just to warn you, there could be a security failure with this tool, because if it is locally executed, it will be by the Galaxy applicative user that can potentially have more rights on file than the current user. To go through this failure, we execute this tool on our local cluster (with pbs/torque) as the current user (so if the current user try to upload a file that he doesn't owned, the tool will not be able to create the symbolic link and the user will receive an error on the Galaxy interface).

Tell me if you're interested in such a tool, and I send you the xml file and bash script associated.

Bests,

Alban

Brad,

Thank you for your fast reply! Looks like "library_import_dir" is for admins and there is another library option for users. I will try with that one and see if the files appear in the GUI.

Thanks!

Mehmet:

It's not important how the files get there, they could be moved via ftp, scp, cp, smb - whatever. Galaxy will use that directory to import from no matter how the files arrive.

I found that confusing at first too.

Hi Everyone,

I am helping a research group to use Galaxy on our clusters. Unfortunately I have no previous experience with Galaxy, but learning along the way. We are almost there, but cannot figure out one particular issue. This is about configuration of Galaxy, so I thought developers list is a better place to submit than the user list.

The galaxy web interface allows for either copy/paste of text, or a URL. Unfortunately we cannot setup a FTP server as instructed due to restrictions on the cluster. The files we are trying to upload are large; around 2GB in size. It does not make sense to upload these files to a remote location (which we can provide an URL for) and download them back, since the data and galaxy are on the same system. However, I could not find a way to open these files locally.

I did some reading, and hoped that "library_import_dir" in "universe_wsgi.ini" would do the trick, but it didn't. Therefore, I will really appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks a lot in advance!

-Mehmet
