For the next step, you will need the path to your home directory: from within Lawrence, use the cd command to return to your home directory, and use pwd to print your working directory.
Fill 'Path' with lawrence/the_path_to/your_home_directory_on_Lawrence (previous step: usually something like lawrence/home/usd.local/user.name). Choose a display name, fill in other details as desired, and click 'Create Collection'.
After submitting, a confirmation window will appear. To make a lab directory as well, click on the 'Create another collection from SDDS - South Dakota Data Store' button.
Fill in the information for your lab directory with lawrence/the_path_to/your_lab_directory. (Usually something like
lawrence/home/your_lab . To get the path to your lab directory, log into Lawrence, navigate to the lab directory, type pwd, and copy the output.) Add a name for the collection, then fill in other information as desired and click the 'Create Collection' button.
Click on 'Transfer data to or from this new collection' to return to Globus.
Select the desired endpoint.
Click on the 'Sharing' tab.
Click on the 'Add Permissions - Share With' button.
Fill in the path to the directory (Note:
/ starts at the endpoint's location, so the path
/globus in permissions for an endpoint that connects to the home directory
lawrence/home/usd.local/user.name will connect to
lawrence/home/usd.local/user.name/globus overall). Ensure 'user' is selected, and enter the email address of the user who is to be given permissions. Make sure this email address is connected to the user's Globus account. Then click 'Add'.
Write a message if desired, choose whether to give the recipient write access, and click 'Add Permission'.
This should now show up under the 'Sharing' tab.
A personal endpoint connects Globus to a personal computer. Making a personal endpoint allows the user to transfer data from a personal computer to Lawrence, and vice versa, through Globus.
To make a personal endpoint, click on the 'Endpoints' tab, then 'Create a personal endpoint'.
Choose a name for the endpoint. Also note the "high assurance endpoint" option. Then click on 'Generate Setup Key'.
Copy the setup key that is generated.
Select the Globus Connect download that matches the computer's operating system.
Download and run the install wizard. When the 'Set up Endpoint' box comes up, paste the setup key into the corresponding text area.
You may be asked about modifying access to your documents.
Under the 'Administered by You' tab, look for the name of the personal endpoint.
