Hi Malcolm

Displaying your data in browser outside of Galaxy is always a little bit tricky. And there are two issues:

 - first, getting the 'display at UCSC main' option to show up in
   the history item

 - second, getting the actual display (at UCSC) to work


As far as I understand your e-mail, you currently struggle with the first?

There are a few points to check

a) (as you have written) make sure to have the option turned on in  the
   ~/universe_wsgi.ini file, eg:

  "ucsc_display_sites = main"


b) make sure two edit ~/tool-data/shared/ucsc/ucsc_build_sites.txt
   by listing all genomes you are interested to use for the display, eg:

   main http://genome.ucsc.edu/cgi-bin/hgTracks?        mm7,mm8,mm9

   The database attribute of your dataset (ie history item) has to be
   set to either mm7 or mm8 or mm9. You will not get the the display
   option if the database is set to mm10 or hg18

c) make sure two edit ~/datatypes_conf.xml, eg

   <display file="ucsc/bam.xml" />

  should not be commented-out.



If all of this is correctly set up, you should get the 'display at UCSC main' for your mouse (mm9) bam file.


Now comes the second issue, getting the display to work and here you might run into firewall-related issues. Check: "Display Sites" at
http://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Admin/Config/Apache%20Proxy

Unfortunately, at this point we struggle as well on our main production galaxy server which relies on external authentication.


Regards, Hans-Rudolf

All,

I manage a cluster and have been asked to set up a local instance of
galaxy. I'm neither a galaxy user nor a biologist, so apologies in
advance if my terminology is off.

I have a basic setup running now, but have been asked to include the
option to "display at UCSC Main" when a user uploads a bam and clicks on
the dataset. Currently I have the options of "display in IGB Local Web".
I've tried this at a few of the other Galaxy sites, and the behavior
seems unpredictable. Uploading the same data set to some sites gives me
this option, while others don't. I'm assuming this is determined by the
option in the universe_wsgi.ini file:

# UCSC browsers: tool-data/shared/ucsc/ucsc_build_sites.txt

ucsc_display_sites = main,test,archaea,ucla

but uncommenting this option and restarting the server doesn't help.
Increasing the log_level to DEBUG doesn't provide any insight.

Any suggestions about how to proceed? Could there be any
firewall-related issues? I ask because of this in the configuration file:

# If use_remote_user = True, display application servers will be denied
access

# to Galaxy and so displaying datasets in these sites will fail.

# display_servers contains a list of hostnames which should be allowed to

# bypass security to display datasets. Please be aware that there are
security

# implications if this is allowed. More details (including required
changes to

# the proxy server config) are available in the Apache proxy
documentation on

# the wiki.

Thanks in advance,

Malcolm
