Berkeley Lab users can now access their LBNL Google Drive folder and files via Globus interface. Globus team in collaboration with LBL has developed a storage connector for the Google Drive. More details about their product can be found here. Using this software LBNL Science IT has created a new Google Drive Connector which can used by all Berkeley Lab users.
If you are new to Globus please visit this page first for details on how to start using Globus.
If you are already a user of Globus and would like to use Globus for transferring data and files to/from your LBNL Google Drive please follow the instructions below.
Step #1: Create a Shared Globus Endpoint using the LBNL's GCSv5 Connector
Login to Globus interface
Click on the 'Endpoints' tab on the left side and then click on the "Search all endpoints" textbox.
Search for "LBNL GDrive Access" and locate the GCSv5 Connecter created by LBNL IT
Choose this Connector and select the "Collections" tab.
Then click the "Add a Collection" button.
If this is the first time creating a Collection using this "LBNL GDrive Access" Connector, you may be prompted to associate a Google Account with your Globus identity, so that Globus knows which Google Drive you wish to share.
Configure the details of your Globus collection. A ‘Collection Display Name’ is required. Here we name it “Google Drive data”, but feel free to give it any name you wish. Click the 'Create Collection’ button when done.
Grant the endpoint access to your Google drive. Your new shared Globus endpoint has now been created.
Step #2: Access Gdrive files in the Transfer files dashboard
Browse to the "File Manager" tab in the Globus interface and search for the new shared Globus endpoint that you have just created under "Your Collections".
Select the newly created Collection. All your LBNL Google Drive files and folders should now be visible and ready for transfer to any other Globus endpoints/collections.
Note: Your collection will be named whatever name you gave it during creation.
