I am using a third-party software to upload huge files (> 100 GB) into Galaxy which emulates the ftp upload procedure. The files come up into the FTP upload pop-up as long id-strings (see attached). which are then used for the filename in the history panel.
Displaying the original file name in the pop-up was easy (see attached - Real Name column), but propagating it to the history panel has been more challenging :)
I finally found a way to keep the original file name in the history panel, but the method does not look very elegant. At the same time, I discovered that the file name can be explicitly set by using the param NAME in
<param name="NAME" type="hidden" help="Name for dataset in upload"></param>
