SGW-04: Data movement between gateway users' desktops/laptops and XSEDE resources


We need to document and prepare training materials on the use of XSEDE/Globus system features to accomplish the following things in the context of developing a science gateway. This is required for the 6-8-2016 Capability Delivery Plan for SGW-4.

  • Use the XSEDE/Globus groups API or web interface to create a group in Globus.
  • Use the XSEDE/Globus groups API to manage membership of a group.
  • Identify XSEDE storage systems that support Globus sharing.
  • Use the XSEDE/Globus transfer API to create a shared endpoint on an XSEDE storage system.
  • Instruct end users to download and install Globus Connect Personal on Windows, Mac, and/or Linux systems.
  • Put items 1-5 together with XSEDE identity management for Science Gateways (https://software.xsede.org/display/SDIACT-245) to allow end users to transfer files directly to/from their own systems and XSEDE systems.


There are comments for XCI-3 that can be viewed with XSEDE authentication.
