Hi, I shared a history with another user and I am now trying to delete said history. When I go to delete it I am told to unshare it first. I found one message in the [dev] list which says to click the "shared" link when viewing Saved Histories and choose "unshare". When I do this nothing happens. When I had the other user (who has a button which says "unshare" for this history) click "unshare" that user is told they can't unshare it. How to go about this? Jen, maybe you can add deleting shared histories to your deleting/disk space video? Thanks, David FHCRC

Hi David, To unshare: 1 - load the history, then go to the history menu option "Share or Publish". Click on the buttons to disable share/publish or click on the user name to bring up a menu to unshare. 2 - click on the history name in the "Saved History" view and the link is in the pop-up menu. How-to is in another video already, linked from the wiki here: The links under the "Share" column on the "Saved History" view do appear to be inactive. I'll follow up with our development team about the expected behavior - are just refreshing the page right now. I don't recall these actually bringing up an unshare option in the recent builds. Thanks for pointing this out - my guess is that either no link is needed or this is under-developed functionality. Hopefully this helps! Jen Galaxy team -- Jennifer Hillman-Jackson

Hi Jen, When I click the gear (with the history selected) as in the video I don't get that pop-up. A window opens in the center with the header "History Options" and nine sub headings: • Previously stored histories • Create a new empty history • Construct workflow from current history • Copy current history • Share current history • Change default permissions for current history • Show deleted datasets in current history • Rename current history (stored as "History_trying_to delete") • Delete current history (If I click Delete here I get a warning, then after yes, I also get the "has been shared with others, unshare before deleting"). Oddly, when I'm over on the genomic hyperbrowser server I do get that pop-up (although in their set up there is no "gear", but an "options" button). Thanks, David

Hi David, Which public server are you using? It sounds like it is using an older release. Still, there should be some way to get to to the Share or Publish form - use the original way that you shared - via "Share current history"? If you want to share the server link, I can maybe help if you cannot remember how it was done. For the Genomic Hyperbrowser, that is definitely an older UI menu. Let us know if you need help after this, I am not clear if you found what you need or not. Jen Galaxy team -- Jennifer Hillman-Jackson
