Upload content using the Create web interface¶
Any element within the Create module has an associated path to define its location in our filesystem structure. You can be discover it by looking at the top of the Item Details form:
Paths work the same way as standard OS folder/file paths, so you can navigate them up/down and inside/out. All paths start with a fixed string that contains the Username: /db/username. This is defined as the root of your path, so you can create the projects you need from here.
Calculations are not allowed to be uploaded in the root path directly. Calculations must be held inside a project.
Creating a project¶
Projects created in the root path are be called root projects. To create any, you must first clear the current path by clicking the Refresh button (find it on top on the Navigation Frame).
With the current path cleared and set it to root path, you can start filling in the project details on the Item Details frame. Project name and description fields are mandatory.
No symbol characters can be used in the project name (as they are not allowed either in directory names inside current OS).
When you are ready editing, then you must click on Create project button. Navigation Frame will refresh the workspace and your project will appear in the project hierarchy.
To create subprojects inside an existing project, you need to click on that project and replace its name and description in the Item Details frame. Then you click Create project and a new one will be generated inside the selected parent project.
To upload a calculation into a project you have to first click on that project. Then the Create web interface upper right panel will display a form where you can fill in the calculation name, its description etc.
The Name field must not contain blank spaces or special characters like \*@. otherwise it will be normalized to an underscore symbol.
Some specific calculations will require to upload the files in a certain order and/or append specific files in order to work properly, please refer the shell automated scripts section for an extended desciption.
Then you have to select the specific format for file upload, which vary depending on the calculation type.
If you upload multiple files with the same name, the Create module will rename them using a numeric code, for example if you attach two geometry.txt files, the second one will be renamed as geometry_2.txt.
When all of your calculations are uploaded, you can click the Refresh button on the Simple Navigation tab to refresh its content. Then, you can navigate throughout your newly uploaded data.
