Comment: Updated documentation to reflect current status of Dashboard


(Note: the following borrows significantly from Maria Whitaker's documentation on creating a batch manifest file; see more at Batch Manifest - this is a work in progress page)

The Batch Ingest feature is how files are uploaded to AMP. To use the Batch Ingest, you will need to create a batch manifest in CSV format, and then upload it to AMP on the Batch Ingest page. All the files in the batch manifest first need to be uploaded to their respective collection's subfolder in the dropbox via an SFTP client; the Batch Ingest will fail if a file is not found in the expected dropbox subfolder. Detailed instructions for how to upload files to a dropbox using a tool like Cyberduck or WinSCP can be found here. It is highly recommended that users use Cyberduck, as it has built-in integration with Google Drive.


The Dashboard allows users both to find files that have already been submitted to a workflow, as well as track the progress of files in a workflow. It contains a fairly robust search feature that allows users to filter results in a multifaceted manner, as well as sort the results. The Dashboard by default displays all job steps by date in descending order, though you are able to sort by any column ascending or descending. Users are additionally able to export the data displayed on the Dashboard as a CSV file for easier analysis in software outside of AMP.

The attributes you are able both to filter and sort by are as follows:

  • Date (filter uses a date range)
  • Submitter
  • Workflow NameCollection
  • Source ItemSource File
  • Primaryfile
  • Workflow
  • Step
  • Status

You are able to sort by all of these attributes as well, in addition to External Source, External ID, and Output.

The search function (either the main search bar or within the filters) works slightly differently than what may be expected (and, crucially, differently than the search function on the Workflow Submission page). Like many search functions, it will return suggestions (of existing files already submitted to a workflow) to you; unlike many search functions, you must select one of these suggestions, as the search function currently does not return partial matches.
