New tools support unattended Globus CLI workflows

September 12, 2019

CISL has introduced new tools to support unattended workflows using the Globus command line interface: long-lived InCommon certificates and the Globus Campaign Storage interface (gci) utility. The gci utility streamlines transfers between the GLADE and Campaign Storage file systems. It automatically detects the presence of a valid certificate and reactivates the NCAR GLADE and Campaign Storage endpoints when necessary, eliminating the need for manual authentication. Another new CISL utility – gcert – simplifies the process of setting up the certificate. 

See Configuring Globus for unattended workflows for more information on the gci and gcert utilities and InCommon Certificates. Interested users can request an InCommon Certificate by contacting cislhelp@ucar.edu.
