Direct data transfer from client systems

By default, transfer of data or files local to client software directly to the CLC Server is not allowed (figure 7.4). To enable direct data transfer from client systems, the option Files uploaded via Import/Export location must be selected under:

        Configuration (Image configuration_16) | External data (Image ext-dat_16_n_p) | Direct data transfer from client systems

For this option to be available, at least one import/export directory must be configured (see Import/export directories).

When enabled, users of client systems can select data on their local file system for import. The selected files are initially uploaded to the designated import/export directory and then imported.

If permissions are enabled on the selected import/export directory, the relevant groups must be granted write permission to be allowed to transfer data from their client system to the CLC Server directly.

The default setting, "Not allowed", is conservative, and limits certain functionality, including:

If at least one import/export directory has been configured, direct data transfer can be enabled by selecting the "Files uploaded via Import/Export location" option and specifying the import/export directory to use.).
