For those who use a cloud instance of Galaxy (via AWS or other), how have you included links or workflows/histories in methods in publications? On Galaxy Main, I can "share or publish" to a public URL. But, with cloud computing, the URL is linked to a specific cloud instance, which is unlikely to exist after the analysis has been completed.

What are your recommendations?

There are a few options:

  1. Replicate the analysis at or another public server and publish from there if the tools available fit your analysis workflow.
  2. Some publication sites are Galaxy-specific, such as Gigascience. Shared published data links are part of what they offer. This would involve an accepted full publication or published application note (created in a way that does not conflict/overlap content with your other publication choice). This is definitely an option worth exploring.
  3. Create a cloudman share of your instance and share that along with the share history link. This means that anyone who wants to use the published data would need to launch an instance but has the added benefits of distributing the AWS costs to those to want to access the data and (important) a matched instance that is pre-configured and known to function with the workflow through time.
  4. Create a local instance that includes just the tools/data involved and host it publically.
  5. Keep the cloud instance up (not ideal as AWS costs will continue for the instance, including compute resources used by those accessing it).

Hopefully one of these options works out for you! I didn't include details for each - but we can help once you decide on a choice and you cannot find the info you need in the Galaxy wiki, or if you get started but need some troubleshooting assistance with details.

Take care, Jen, Galaxy team
