This is a really great feature to move individual datasets (Martins message). The only down side is that the name of the dataset is the URL address and not the dataset name in the original galaxy instance. If you try to do it with .bam files you need to click on the download button and then right click the 'download dataset' popup.
I tried to import the history (Jens message) in the hope that names would be kept (two datasets in history).
Using the 'export tor file' AND 'import to file' I could get it to work.
- Download entire histories by selecting "Export to File" from the
History menu, and clicking on the link generated.
2.Transfer entire histories by selecting "Export to File" from the History menu,
generating the link, coping the link in the "from" Galaxy instance,
then in the "to" Galaxy instance select "Import from File" from the
History menu, and paste in the link into the new form.
While you get a page saying ' This history will be visible when the import is complete' you actually have to click on the 'view all histories' button to see the new history. It will have the original name with the prefix 'imported from archive:' and all the datasets will have the original names which is great.
But you do need to be patient as the "export to file" command might take a while to complete for large histories and the "import from file" command will not work until it has. I find it useful to copy the export URL to a text file in case I overwrite the clipboard while I am waiting .
