Adding Private Tools: Part 2
About a month ago, we posted that GenomeSpace had added the ability to let you put your own tools into the tool bar so that you could use your local instance of GenePattern, Galaxy, or any other GenomeSpace enabled tool. It has now gotten easier to add your tools into GenomeSpace with the release of the Manage Private Tools dialog.
To add a tool to your toolbar, first, make sure it is GenomeSpace enabled.
Once the tool is ready, start at the System menu and select Manage Private Tools.
This will open up the list of private tools that you have available. Most people will start with an empty list like this (below). Click Add new to start the process of adding a new tool.
This will present you with the dialog for adding your tool to the tool bar.
As we discussed in the earlier post, you now need to enter the information about the tool that you are adding. Here you will need to enter:
Help about what to use in each of the fields is available if you click the help icons (blue question marks) at the right side of the dialog. A completed tool information dialog (with the help showing) will look something like this:
That's it! Once your tool has been added, you should be able to launch it from GenomeSpace.
