How to import files into your Azure Enclave Project Workspace

All users with access to an Azure Enclave Project Workspace have the ability to import files into the workspace.

1.  On your computer, map a network drive to the Project Workspace F: Drive Inbound folder using the unique Project Workspace IP Address provided to you when your access to the workspace was provisioned. This is a one-time setup.
Path Format: \\Project Workspace IP Address\Inbound
Example: \\<IP Address>\Inbound

2.  Once mapped, you may copy and paste or move files into this Inbound folder location.
NOTE: Copied or moved files WILL NOT BE VISIBLE in the Inbound folder.

3. The Azure Enclave Team is automatically notified when the workspace Inbound folder contains files. During normal business hours, the team will evaluate the files and manually place your Inbound files into the Project Workspace F: Drive Imported folder location.
Please allow up to 2 hours for manual file transfer completion during normal business hours. In the future, this file transfer will be automated.

4. To access imported files in your project workspace, login to your Azure Enclave Project Workspace. Your imported files will be located on the F:\Imported\ReminderToMove folder.

5. Please remember to copy your files from the F:\Imported\ReminderToMove folder to a shared location. Once copied, please remember to delete these files. All files will be deleted the last weekend of every month.

How to export files from your Azure Enclave Project Workspace

Only the project PI and Project Lead have the ability to export files from your Project Workspace. If neither the PI or Project Lead have access to your Project Workspace, the Azure Enclave team must be contacted to export your files. Please see the technical assistance section of this KB for contact details.

The following instructions are applicable only to the PI and Project Lead.

1.  On your computer, map a network drive to the Project Workspace F: Drive Exported folder using the unique Project Workspace IP Address provided to you when your access to the workspace was provisioned. This is a one-time setup.
Path Format: \\Project Workspace IP Address\Exported
Example: \\<IP Address>\Exported

2. Login to your Azure Enclave Project Workspace. Copy and paste or move files into the following D:\Outbound shared folder location.

3. The Azure Enclave Team is automatically notified when the workspace Outbound folder contains files. During normal business hours, the team will evaluate the files and manually place your Inbound files into the Project Workspace F: Drive Exported folder location.
Please allow up to 2 hours for manual file transfer completion during normal business hours. In the future, this file transfer will be automated.

4. You may access and copy/paste your exported files via the previously mapped F: Drive Exported folder.
