Advanced Globus Features

This document outlines advanced features of the Globus data transfer tool.

You can do much more with Globus than transfer data. See the following for more information on Sharing data and automating data workfows using Globus timer and Globus's command line interface. 

Globus Command Line Interface 

Many of the functions illustrated above in the Globus Web interface can be performed in the Globus Command Line Interface (CLi) See Globus's CLI documentation for more information.

Globus Timer

The Globus Timer feature allows you to schedule data workflows for a certain date and time with the option to repeat these workflows on a specified schedule. See Using Globus Timer for instructions on how to use Globus timer. Globus Timer also has a command line interface.

Globus Flows

Globus flows allow you to automate data workflows, like moving data from an instrument and doing preprocessing steps, by combining its data transfer capability with "actions" that perform computational tasks within Globus and through external service providers. See Globus's Flows documentation for more information. 

Globus APIs

Globus provides REST APIs for many globus features. See Globus's API documentation for more details.
