Subject RE: References for SSH/SCP Airavata key setup and file transfer
Date Fri, 24 Apr 2015 09:23:46 GMT
Hi Shameera,
thanks for you reply. I think I've configured correctly the but
my question belongs to the construction of the workflow allowing the file transfer.
I've already created some application interfaces which takes an URI as output without success.
I haven't clear which should be the application deployment belonging to the application interface.

For example if I know (and i provide as the workflow input) the path on the remote machine
where a certain file is located, which is the workflow (and the interfaces) that I need to
build up?

My assumption are
Input: the interface has a single input of type URI (the value of the URI should be assigned
as the reference to the machine, as example <RemoteMachineIP>:/tmp/filetotransfer
Output: the output of the application interface is of type URI as you suggested.

But which should be the application deployment?
I don't think that my assumption is correct so if you please give me an entire example to
build up this kind of workflow it will be appreciated.

Thanks a lot,

Hi Alfredo, 
Yes you can transfer files from remote machine to your machine(where airavata server is running)
by setting application output type as URI when you register the application interface on app
You can configure your ssh private and public keys in You need
to provide correct values to following fields. 
################# ---------- For ssh key pair authentication ------------------- ################
#public.ssh.key=/path to public key for ssh
#private.ssh.key=/path to private key file for ssh
#ssh.keypass=passphrase for the private key
#ssh.username=username for ssh connectionRegards, Shameera.

Hello Everyone,
my desire is to realize a file transfer from a remote machine to my local machine (accessible
through ssh/scp) using an airavata workflow.

Is there any available documentation/example for the setup of both workflow involving file
transfer and key registration? If it's not can someone please explain me which are the steps
to follow?

Thanks a lot,


Best Regards,Shameera Rathnayaka.
