Hoping someone can help. I have a run that recently completed on our Illumina MiSeq and the FastQ files are on BaseSpace. I am able to generate a URL for this project containing these files. Is there a way to use FTP (Cyberduck) to send all of these files to the main instance of Galaxy using this generated URL so that I do not have upload each file separately (there are 150 files). Thanks for the help.

If you have an ftp address for the file you can simply have Galaxy fetch it through the upload modal. See the screenshot:

I do not have a ftp address, I simply have a URL generated by basespace for sharing purposes:

I have created a BaseSpace account and tried to explore the UI a bit and it seems this is not easy as Illumina does not provide any raw sharing of your data unless you use the API.

You can explore the following links on how to use the API and get your data programatically but Illumina does not provide you with FTP server or sharing links that you could connect to from Galaxy.

EDIT: This might allow you to obtain url that Galaxy can use to fetch the data for you:
