This page describes the process of creating a request entity in the Scifeon database using the request user interface. If you would like to explore how the request interface is built, visit the developer page.
Using the Data Browser
By entering the data browser you can quickly create a new request:
This does, however, not allow the user to attach samples, files, and methods to the request.
New Request User Interface
Instead, using the request interface allows for advanced requests containing a vide array of information.
The request interface is reached through the
Create new button in the side menu. Clicking the
New Request button opens the following page:
The request itself is created in the larger panels: Here, a
Notes panel contains written information on the request, this could contain experimental parameters, packing information, or whatever else could be necessary for the request.
Samples panel contains a list of samples included in the request. These will be inserted as sample entities in the database when the request is made.
Methods panel contains the methods available in the database and new ones can be introduced via the data browser. Selecting the wanted methods opens the
Sample-method map allowing you to match samples and methods.
The sidebar to the left contains meta information for the request: who is making it (
Customer), what type it is(
Type), an optional description, who it is for (
Inbox), and uploaded files.
When satisfied with the input, click the
Save button near the top of the page to save the request to the database. This will notify the owner of the inbox and make it appear in the Inbox entity view:
