After a workflow has successfully executed, the resulting data is placed within the project’s Files repository. These results can be downloaded to your local machine using the visual interface and direct download links.
To download results:
- Click the Tasks tab in project dashboard.
- Select the COMPLETED task.
- The task page is displayed.
- Under the Outputs column, you'll see all the outputs the task produced. Click the file you'd like to download.
Once you click the file name, you will be taken to the Files view of the project, where you can download files.
- In the Files view (shown below), click the Download button.
If the files you want to download are too large or too numerous for your browser to handle, you can obtain a list of direct download links. This is also useful if you want to run the download on a remote computer. The list of download links can be used as input to your script or passed to a third-party download tool, such as wget, curl, or aria2.
Please note that you should not use the download links with
aria2c directly in the terminal, since some special characters in the URLs require escaping. Instead, you should paste the links into a text file and use
aria2c with the
-i option to download from the listed links.
To download files using a third-party download tool:
- Go to the Files page by clicking the Files tab in the upper right hand corner in your project.
- Tick the checkbox(es) next to the file(s) you wish to download.
- Click the drop-down icon next to Download at the top of the file list, and select Get download links.
Getting download links
- Copy the list of links to your clipboard, or click Save for a text file.
- Run the download tool of your choice with these links as the input.
For example, assuming that you have saved the list of links as download-links.txt, you can download the files with aria2 using the command:
$ aria2c -i download-links.txt
In order to download multiple output files at once click the folder icon under the Outputs column.
The file browser with the tasks's output files will be shown.
Select the files you want to download and click Download.
If you cannot download multiple files at once, check whether your browser settings permit multiple file downloads.
