There are many files which are very common and used by most of the tools. Ex. Hg19, dbsnp, cosmic, etc.

How can I make default datasets so that, if non-admin user logged in into my galaxy instance, he should see those common datasets while running the tools.

Is there is any way to do this ?


Waiting for Positive Reply.

Thank You

I am not sure what you mean, could possibly data libraries be of help to you?

Thank You both of your for reply.

As far as default datasets, 

- first upload using data libraries from admin account and do not assign any permission to it.

- So that it will appear in "Shared Data".

- Now login from any user and open "Shared Data", you will see all those datasets in it.

- You can import to your current history to use it.


to share workflow

- I have found out sharing link is good way to share workflow.


One suggestion, It will be very good if we can "Link all our dataset instead Upload" without using Non-Admin account.



Thank You.

Martin's advice to explore using data libraries for shared data is a good one. You can also put in comments on your tool form about where to find sample/default data (which library, etc.). Being able to select files from Shared Libs on the tool form directly - without needing to import the data into a history first, is an idea we have been thinking about. Not implemented as far as I know (Marten can add more about this).

Now, reference genomes can be incorporated into a tool form directly no problem. Check out the wrapper for a mapping tool like BWA to see how (although many many tools incorporate this option). You can sort this list of genomes in the pull-down any way you want sort of the associated loc file == sort in the display). So if one was the "default" - then sort so it is first and maybe put a comment on the tool form near the selection/parameter name.

Hope this helps, Jen, Galaxy team
