We need to document how a science gateway should:
(1) Obtain a Globus OAuth2 access token for use with the Globus Transfer API such that it can activate endpoints on XSEDE SP resources and move data to/from them.
(2) Create an endpoint on the Gateway host system so that the Transfer API can move data to/from the Gateway host system.
(3) Monitor the status of individual transfers to determine when each transfer is complete.
This should ideally be conducted in cooperation with the Science Gateway community Institute (SGCI) so that the results are also available via the SGCI.
There are comments for XCI-436 that can be viewed with XSEDE authentication.
