According to the Data Libraries documentation you can link to datasets as opposed to importing them. through a copy. I have a local galaxy installation. My primary goal is to not be required to import, since I have a datasets > 2GB.
I am an admin., but do not see any "add datasets to current folder from user directory" selection. This is supposedly enabled by setting user_library_import_dir in the config/galaxy.ini to a path accessible by the user that runs the Galaxy process, but I still do not see any selection such as this under "Shared Data" option.
I see Data Libraries under the admin tab, but do not see any feature which allows me to enter a custom path or even designate the path that I have placed in the configuration
Thank you as I am very interested in setting up a link rather than copying.
