Figure 4.3: Data can be uploaded, downloaded, deleted and new folders created using functionality in the "Browse S3 locations tab". A folder in an S3 bucket that is being used to store sample data has been selected. URLs for that folder are provided under the file browser. Here, an admin user is logged into the CLC Server, so the CGC system bucket is visible.

When an item in an S3 bucket is selected, URLs to that item are shown below the file listing area and relevant options are enabled (figure 4.2). These URLs can be copied using the Copy to clipboard button. They can be useful when copying data to server import/export directories, when sharing the location of files with others, and when specifying inputs and locations to save to using the CLC Server Command Line Tools.

The actions that can be taken in practice depend on the permissions for accessing the selected AWS S3 bucket and settings in the CLC Server for the user logged in.
