We would like to use the SRA Cloud Delivery option to ingest data ( We can find and provide the bucket name from the workspace, but I cant figure out how to set the Storage Admin roles for the NCBI service accounts. Is there a way we can do this or is this something you can activate? Thank you!

    Hi Michael, 

    Thank you for writing in! You should be able to give the appropriate permissions by sharing the workspace with a Terra service account. You will have to register the service account with Terra and then share the workspace with that registered service account. More information and step-by-step instructions can he found here: Collaborate in a Shared Workspace

    Hope that helps, please let us know if you have any other questions!

    Kind Regards,

    Hi Bohan,

    Thanks for following up. What is the original service account address, the one you are looking to register by downloading the credentials json and registering the script? We're happy to follow-up in a private email exchange you don't want to share the information publicly.

    Can you also provide a screenshot of your Share module for the workspace?

    Many thanks,

    Thanks for responding. I'd prefer to follow up with a private email chain. I didn't register a service account myself. In the SRA Cloud delivery option:

    Then I shared my access with these two account both as owner of the workspace:

    I wonder if I can get an email address to respond to so that I can share the 'share config' in the workspace?
