I am trying to clean out my "Histories shared with you by others" page
on the main public Galaxy server. I would like to remove old
histories shared with me. I have tried two methods, neither of which
allow me to remove these histories:
1. clicking the check box to a history shared with me, then clicking
"Unshare" at the bottom of the page
2. clicking the drop down menu and then selecting "Unshare"
In both cases, I get the error message "History is not owned by the
current user". This behavior appears to be referenced in another
recent thread from the sharer's side
Any ideas on what is going on here?
I just tested the UI "unsharing" for both of your cases and was unable
to replicate the problem. Can you confirm that you are using the
Main Galaxy instance at http://usegalaxy.org ? And is this your
email? Please confirm and we can try to see what may be going on.
For the other, prior, question you reference, that one was fully
resolved and permissions were not a factor. The thread has a reply
a link to our sharing wiki/video. The UI is/was behaving as expected.
share/unshare, use the pull-down menus or use the forms available from
the history menu.
Let us know about where you are using Galaxy, and we can follow up
