Click on 'SDDS - South Dakota Data Store (POSIX)'
For the next step, you will need the path to the directory to which you want to connect (e.g. home directory, lab directory, etc.): to find this, from within Lawrence, use the cd command to navigate to the desired directory, then use pwd to print your working directory.
Fill 'Path' with lawrence/the_path_to/your_directory_on_Lawrence . Choose a display name, fill in other details as desired, and click 'Create Collection'.
After submitting, a confirmation window will appear. To make another collection to a directory on Lawrence, click on the 'Create another collection from SDDS - South Dakota Data Store' button.
Sharing an endpoint is a way to give another person access to one's own data, as explained in Globus Information: Guest Collections & Sub-Collections.
First, select the endpoint that is connected to the data to be shared (even if not all the data to which the endpoint is connected will be shared; this can be restricted in another step).
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
/Carrots (as per the example) 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/Carrots 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.
