Hi, I'm trying to use "Export to file" to copy a history from one Galaxy instance to another. But rather than giving me the URL link that I can then paste into the second instance, the function is just downloading the history .gz archive directly to my local disk (this is a history that I have 'exported' before, so I guess that because the archive already exists, it doesn't get recreated). But because it's not possible to import from a file, only from a URL, the download is useless - is there a way to force the "Export to file" function to re-supply the download link please?
Right now the best way to transfer data is by individual dataset. Download datasets, or download the entire history as a tar file, uncompress it locally, then upload what you need into another Galaxy.
This occurs (direct file download, no link provided) after the download to file function has been used a few times already. There is a limit on how many times an archive will be created. From our testing, the tar file downloaded will be complete if you use the Google Chrome browser.
The link functionality was not working exactly as expected when we all tested here last week (the import portion). We consider addressing this a priority. Any updates that our team has right now we'll post to this thread, otherwise please follow progress on released updates here: https://wiki.galaxyproject.org/DevNewsBriefs
Tickets to address enhancements for this function are in Trello, this is one of them: https://trello.com/c/qCfAWeYU
Best, Jen, Galaxy team
