How does Galaxy differentiate users who have not logged on?

Melissa Cline
Hi folks,

Quick question.  When two different users use the same Galaxy instance without logging in, how does Galaxy keep their identities straight, such that when they come back to their computers the next day, they see only their own workspace and not the other user's workspace?

Thanks!

Melissa

Probably the same way by which it keeps track of you when you are logged in: setting a cookie in the browser. I didn't verify this, but that is how basically all web services do it. If you clear the galaxy cookies I expect you will end up in a new empty workspace.

Slightly off topic, but I would like to caution that if you want to be able to ensure that your workspace is still available across time periods/browser sessions on the public site, then you should most definitely use registered accounts, as we will not be able to recover any "lost" anonymous histories for anyone.


Thanks for using Galaxy,

Dan
