This is a short step-by-step guide to demonstrate how different datasets can be added to a practice virtual machine, which can then be analysed using DataSHIELD commands.
The basic outline is:
Download the data files and dictionaries .zip file (download from here: take your pick of the available types of data: e.g. DASIM or SURVIVAL)
For this demo we are uploading CNSIM data, but it would work equivalently for other data sets.
boot your practice VM (the one downloaded for the 9th December workshop)
once it is running, log in to the opal portal using the administrator login combination (find it here, see the services part of the table)
Go into “projects”- on the top grey bar of the opal web portal
Upload the .zip file
go to “files” (4th tab from top on left bar)
import the .zip file:
go to “tables” (second tab from top on left bar)
CLick through the dialog boxes
select an “opal archive” file format:
Navigate to the zip file you uploaded
Give the table tab 5-10 seconds (as the data processes) then click the grey “refresh” button above the table
You should be ready to analyse!
