I saw the information here on how to import files via FTP. Our users have access to their files via http (actually https), but the server requires them to enter a username and password to login and access the files. I tried to upload some data by going to '(Get Data) > Upload from Computer > Paste / Fetch data' and then entering the URL. However, when Galaxy tries to retrieve the file, it gets an error like this:
Enter username for Restricted Files at dataserver.edu: Unable to fetch https://dataserver.edu/results/lab/ChIP-Seq/alignment/bigwigs/sample1.bw EOF when reading a line
Obviously, this should be due to the server's login requirements.
Is there a way to enable users to login through Galaxy or somehow pass along their credentials?
