To create a Collection select the Local Account and your Globus ID (please note, these should match). Click Continue.

You only need to add a Collection Display Name to create the collection. Please name this the same as your folder on Apocrita. Do not create a different name as it will make it harder to discover your folder later.

  • The remaining fields can be left blank and updated later.
  • The default directory will default to the top level of the Globus folder.
  • We recommend setting the encryption.

Click Create Collection

If you need support with your new share you will need to add someone from ITS Research so they can have access to the collection you have created.
