Data Store and Data Services¶
What if I need more space (storage) in the Data Store¶
Typically, every user has a 100GB allocation in the Data Store. You can request more space by completing an Allocation Increase Form.
How do I publish a large set of public data?¶
If you need assistance transferring a large dataset to CyVerse, please contact CyVerse Support (email@example.com or use the blue Intercom icon at the bottom right). For more information on our policies, see CyVerse’s Collaboration Policy and Data Management Policy. For more information on using data at CyVerse, see the Data Store Guide.
What public datasets are in CyVerse?¶
CyVerse provides web access to its public datasets. Because the CyVerse Data Store underlies all CyVerse services, the public datasets may also be accessed through the Discovery Environment, Atmosphere, the Science APIs and iCommands. For more information on using data at CyVerse, see the Data Store Guide.
How do I request a Community Released Data Folder?¶
Community Released Data folders are available for evolving datasets that individuals or communities want to make available as quickly as possible for research and reuse, especially within CyVerse analysis platforms. Community Released Data folders are intended for datasets that are growing or changing frequently or that may not need long-term preservation.
Then, if you meet the criteria, you can request a folder using this Request for Community Released Data Folders Form.
How do I make a folder public with iCommands?¶
Although you can share files and folders in the DE and create public links, you must use iCommands make them visible to everyone. Permissions are set in iCommands by using ichmod (https://docs.irods.org/4.2.1/icommands/user/#ichmod).
To make a folder public, you give read permission to two users: ‘public’ (anyone signed in with a CyVerse account) and ‘anonymous’ (anyone on the web - no sign in required).
To recursively make a shared folder called ‘myfolder’ public, use the instructions below

ichmod -r read public /iplant/home/shared/myfolder ichmod -r read anonymous /iplant/home/shared/myfolder
To remove public access to the folder, use:
ichmod -r null public /iplant/home/shared/myfolder ichmod -r null anonymous /iplant/home/shared/myfolder
