Creating new External Uploads follows the general explanation - clicking the "Create" button .

It is assumed that the uploaded files belong to a single command-line job originated outside of the Exabyte platform.

Clicking "Create" as prescribed above takes the user to the Upload Dialog where the data can be uploaded. The dialog contains the following parameters.

### Name¶

The name of the Job

### Job Script File¶

The name of (or path to) the Job script file. Will be parsed and shown inside the job as input file after upload is complete.

### Standard Output file¶

The name of (or path to) the file containing the standard (textual) output. Will be parsed and shown inside the job as the outpuf file after upload is complete.

### File archive¶

The file archive containing the data. The following must be asserted:

1. the archive type is ".zip"
2. the size of the archive is less than the maximum size (as shown in the helper message)
3. the archive contains the job files at the top level

To demonstrate the last point, here's an acceptable content of the archive:

  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 # Desired archive content . |____CONTCAR |____DOSCAR |____EIGENVAL |____IBZKPT |____INCAR |____job.rms |____KPOINTS |____OSZICAR |____OUTCAR |____PCDAT |____POSCAR |____vasprun.xml 

and, below is the equivalent nested structure that should be avoided:

  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 # Undesired content . |____directory | |____CONTCAR | |____DOSCAR | |____EIGENVAL | |____IBZKPT | |____INCAR | |____job.rms | |____KPOINTS | |____OSZICAR | |____OUTCAR | |____PCDAT | |____POSCAR | |____vasprun.xml 

Creating an archive on a UNIX-based system

If we assume that job_dir is the folder containing the job files, the archive can be created using the following example command: cd job_dir; zip -r9 ../archive.zip . ; cd -
