Follow these steps if you are interested in using command line on the Columbus server to import image data

Image data can be imported to Columbus using the following import.script:

For Script plus example ArrayScan data use:

Download the above script and move it to the server using a suitable application such as WinSCP

The image data to be imported must be available on a mounted file system on the server. Essentially you can either copy the file/s to the server or you could mount a share to the server with the files on it. Perhaps one of the more common shares would be a Windows share to the Linux system, in which case please see the following technical note:

In the command line below the path to the image files appears as Image_Data_Folder

To check for suitable import types please refer to the "Import Type" menu, you will find this in the Import View in Columbus. In the command line below this appears as Import_Type

The image import is executed by command line as follows:

$ acapella -s User=Columbus_User_Name -s Password=Columbus_User_Password -s Host=Columbus_IP_Address -s ImportType=Import_Type -s DatasetFolder=Image_Data_Folder -s ScreenName=Columbus_Screen_Name import.script

For instance in the following example an ArrayScan TIF, in the path /home/columbus/ImportTest, will be imported to screen name Test using the columbus user.

$ acapella -s User="columbus" -s Password="columbus" -s Host="localhost" -s ImportType="ArrayScan TIF" -s DatasetFolder=/home/columbus/ImportTest -s ScreenName="Test" import.script
