UNSW is a member of AARNET cloudstor that allows safe sharing of data files up to 100 GB in size. Other institutions belong to their own national network that is part of the federation and should allow the easy sharing of large data sets.
To share a file, enter the Federated Cloud ID in the 'share' dialog. A notification will pop up on the ownCloud server of the recipient.
You can find your own Federated Cloud ID in your user settings. Give it to your friends so they can share files with you!
Federated Cloud Sharing
- Federation - a group of servers acting as a single server.
My Federated Cloud ID is email@example.com@cloudstor.aarnet.edu.au/plus
Use this method when you are sharing with users on ownCloud 8.x and older.
What if you do not know the username or URL? Then you can have ownCloud create the link for you and email it to your recipient.
When your recipient receives your email they will have to take a number of steps to complete the share link. First they must open the link you sent them in a Web browser, and then click the Add to your ownCloud button.
The Add to your ownCloud button changes to a form field, and your recipient needs to enter the URL of their ownCloud server in this field and press the return key, or click the arrow.
Next, they will see a dialog asking to confirm. All they have to do is click the Add remote share button and they’re finished.
Remove your linked share anytime by clicking the trash can icon. This only unlinks the share, and does not delete any files.
