Dear all,

We experienced the same issue. In the current state, either we can't display the data using a genome browser, either we have to grant anonymous access. Was it considered a concern that datasets may be accessed without a login? If so, may I suggest to add an option so that we permit the download of datasets without login (they are still protected by the digest) without allowing anonymous access?

Dear all,

I'm running a local version of Galaxy using nginx as proxy and I have problems with the visualization of remote tracks (like .bam or .bigwig) on the UCSC genome browser. If I disable the anonymous login and then try to display a .bam or .bigwig file on UCSC genome browser I get this error:

redirected to non-http(s): /galaxy/root

If anonymous login is enabled then the track visualization works fine.
Any suggestions?

Thank you,
