Uploading documents/data_files related to project/investigation/study (and not just to assays) #106
At the moment documents/data_files can be associated only with assays (and projects, but are not connected with the project directly).
Usually we have also the files (documents/data_files) that are relevant for other levels, e.g. STUDY_METADATA (or INVESTIGATION_METADATA) files, reports, presentations that are relevant at the upper level.
I propose to implement the posibility to link uploaded files directly to any of layers (projects/investigations/studies) and not only to assays. This feature would help the users to organize files in a more structured way. This feature should be possible in both, browser and API.
This is what I meant.
When a document or data_file is created (with API), only assay is allowed as a relationship (in addition to project). I am asking for possibility to relate it to investigation or study, or to none of isa, if it is related only to the project (e.g. project metadata file). For example, in the tree view, investigaton has only studies as branches, But I would also like to have documents/data_files.
