Shared Files

The Shared Files feature is based on PHFS Storage to store shared files. Group members are able to browse shared files and able to upload files for sharing with other group members.


It lists files and directories with columns of Name, Size, and Last Modified. The list can be sorted by these columns.

  • <Directory>/: navigate into the directory by clicking it.

Some directories are created by PrimeHub automatically, such as jobArtifacts/.

  • <File>: there are actions we can perform over files.

    • View file: view the file in an new tab if the file format is supported. E.g. image, text and notebook(.ipynb).

    • Download file

    • Copy PHFS URI: URI looks like phfs:///<path/to/file> (triple /); which can be used in Jobs.

    • Delete
