What needs to be configured to be able to upload Data Sets via CIFEX


Fill out the following fields in the

# The URL of the CIFEX server
cifex-url =

# Cifex users that will receive and automatically manage uploaded data.
# The user names should be prepended with 'id:' prefix for example: 
# cifex-recipient = id:dropboxuser, id:backpuser
cifex-recipient = id:cifexdatamanager


Create a user with the name you used in the file of openBIS (cifex-recipient).

Create these two files in the corresponding cifex installation:

cat cifex/jetty/etc/triggers.txt
cifexdatamanager        ch.systemsx.cisd.cifex.plugins.dss.DataStoreTrigger

cat cifex/jetty/ 
dss-incoming-directory = /net/bs-dsu-data/array0/dsu/dss/cifex_dss_upload

You also need to create the user cifexdatamanager (or what name you have chosen) in Cifex.
