Modern Research Data Portal

Simple web app framework demonstrating how to build a data portal using the Globus platform.

Overview

This repository contains two separate server applications. The first, the "Portal," is an example "research portal" that demonstrates how to authenticate users with Globus Auth, how to make requests against the Globus Transfer API, and how to interact with an HTTPS-enabled Globus Endpoint. All of the Portal code can be found in the portal/ directory.

The second application, the "Service," is an example "resource server" that demonstrates how a research portal can offload tasks to a separate service that has the capability to perform tasks on behalf of users. All of the Service code can be found in the service/ directory.

Getting Started

Set up your environment.

Create your own App registration for use in the Portal.

  • Visit the Globus Developer Pages to register an App.
  • If this is your first time visiting the Developer Pages you'll be asked to create a Project. A Project is a way to group Apps together.
  • When registering the App you'll be asked for some information, including the redirect URL and any scopes you will be requesting.
    • Redirect URL: https://localhost:5000/authcallback (note: if using EC2 localhost should be replaced with the IP address of your instance).
    • Scopes: urn:globus:auth:scope:transfer.api.globus.org:all, openid, profile, email
  • After creating your App the client id and secret can be copied into this project in the following two places:
    • portal/portal.conf in the PORTAL_CLIENT_ID and PORTAL_CLIENT_SECRET properties.
    • service/service.conf where the PORTAL_CLIENT_ID is used to validate the access token that the Portal sends to the Service.
