Note that this release of Pipette Analysis is supported for single server deployments only - i.e. it is not supported for use with multi-server deployments such as clusters and grids.

Pipette Deployment

After Pipette Analysis is installed, you can deploy it by doing the following:

  1. In Pipeline Pilot, go to the server home page: Help/Server Home Page.
  2. Click the Analysis (Pipette) link.
  3. You can bookmark this page, share the URL with your users, and include it on a web page or application of your own.

Administration Settings

Pipette Analysis has several package global variables that you can modify to alter the behavior of the application.

To modify a package global variable:

  1. Open the Pipeline Pilot Administration Portal.
  2. Go to Setup > Global Properties at the following URL:
    http://<myserver:9944>/admin#Setup.GlobalProperties
    where <myserver:9944> is the name of your server and port number.
  3. Select the Pipette Analysis package.

The available configuration options are described below.

Name Default Description
ServicePath Protocols/Web Applications/Pipette/Services

The protocol database (XMLDB) location where Pipelining services must be placed.

  • Can contain subfolders.
  • Can be a single location or a comma-separated list of locations.
OutputPath Protocols/Web Applications/Pipette/Outputs

The XMLDB location where Pipelining and Charting outputs must be placed.

  • Can contain subfolders.
  • Can be a single location or a comma-separated list of locations.
TemplatePath Protocols/Web Applications/Pipette/Templates

The XMLDB location where shared Pipelining and Charting templates will be saved by users.

  • These can be saved from both the Pipelining and Charting user interfaces.
  • User-scoped templates are saved separately in the user's XMLDB.
CompressCaches True

By default, Pipeline Pilot caches used extensively by Pipette Analysis are compressed. This saves disk space, but causes the caches to be slower (both read and write).

  • To improve performance at the cost of disk space, change this flag to "False".

Permissions

Pipette Analysis adds two user permissions.

To change permissions:

  1. Open the Pipeline Pilot Administration Portal.
  2. Go to Security > Permissions at the following URL:
    http://<myserver:9944>/ admin#Security.Permissions
    where <myserver:9944> is the name of your server and port number.
  3. Select the Pipette Analysis package.

For details on how to modify permissions see the ‘Pipeline Pilot Admin Portal Guide’ which is part of the Pipeline Pilot help system.

The available permissions are described below.

Description Default Description
Pipette Analysis/DevelopService No one

Adds extra buttons to the Pipette Analysis Pipelining user interface for developers. These buttons currently allow the following:

  • Launching Pipeline Pilot with the current service (requires Pipeline Pilot 9.2 or later).
  • Rerunning the current service.
Pipette Analysis/EditSharedTemplate Everyone

Allows users to save shared Pipelining and Charting templates.

If users do not have this permission, they can:

  • Use shared templates.
  • Create, update, and delete their own templates.

They cannot:

  • Create update, and delete the shared templates that all users can access.

Note

Pipette Analysis dynamically downloads code from a cloud server as a mechanism to provide you with software updates without having to manually download and install the software. You can control which updates to install through the global settings for Pipette in the admin portal.
