If you would like another colleague or researcher to have access to your data, you may create a shared collection on Crane, Swan, or Attic. You can personally manage access to this collection and give access to anybody with a Globus account (whether or not they have an HCC account). Please use this feature responsibly by sharing only what is necessary and granting access only to trusted users.
Because of size and performance limitations, HCC does not recommend
creating shares in your
Sign in to your Globus account, click on the ‘File Manager’ tab
and search for the collection that you will use to host your shared
collection. For example, if you would like to share data in your
work directory, search for the
hcc#crane collection. Once
you have found the collection, it will need to be activated if it has
not been already (see collection activation instructions
If it is already activated, select the collection by clicking on the
name. Then select the ‘share’ button on the right sidebar.
Click on ‘Add a Guest Collection’. In the ‘Path’ box, enter the full path to the directory you would like to share. Only files under this directory will be shared to the users you grant access. Enter a name for the collection and provide a short description if you wish. Finally, click ‘Create Share’.
To share the collection with someone, click on ‘Add Permissions – Share With’ under the ‘Permissions’ tab for the shared collection you just created. Next enter the relative path of the
directory that this user should be able to access. For example, if
the source path of your shared collection
/work/<groupid>/<userid> but you would like your
colleague to only have access
/work/<groupid>/<userid>/share, then the ‘Path’ should be
entered as simply
/share. Under ‘Username or Email’ type the Globus ID (or group name if you have selected ‘group’) of the user (or group) to whom you would like to grant
access. Finally, click the blue ‘Add Permission’ button.
You should see the user or group added to the list.
