You will need to setup data transfer in sample tracking before you start using it. This page ( describes it step by step.
Let me know if you have more questions.

I have made a lot of progress getting the LIMS system up and running and not I'm at the point where I was able to connect to the folders having my sequence data from galaxy.
I can select a sample from a list of submitted samples in the tracking form and then match it to a file in our sequence directory.

I get an error when trying to transfer the sample to galaxy. 
Does anybody have any ideas where should I start looking to fix this?
Error below.
Thanks in advance.
Last couple of lines are,
NoSectionError: No section: 'data_transfer_user_login_info'

If I understand you correctly what you want to do you should be able to just do that by a tool.xml config calling an R script and providing a data file. The R script can open that file and process it into some output file known by galaxy.... But maybe I oversee something.

In your tool_config grab an R-file and some datafile:

        R --slave -f $in_r --args $in_data $out_data
      <param name="in_data" type="data" format="tabular" label="Test data file" />
      <param name="in_r" type="data" format="text" label="R script to load and execute" />
      <data name="out_data" type="data" format="tabular" label="R script output" />

The R script provided will grab the args from the cmd line as you indiciated earlier:

   # R script file to grab input and output filenames from cmdline and just copy
   args <- commandArgs()
   output <- read.table(args[6], header=T)
   #end script

Hope this helped,

Onderwerp: Re: [galaxy-dev] rpy or perl

 I am not using perl, but bash, which makes things much easier on the
cmd line.
However, maybe you know how to retrieve the R output or:
what exactly is the problem for Galaxy
for how to handle the system output from R through the shell?
We have seen it here with other tools as well.
R should work straight from the cmd line as well.
And everything - incl R - does when use bash in a shell, but as soon
as you put galaxy in between you and the program the output,
is nowhere to be seen

so far, we've been able to simply 'mv' the output from the program
towards bash and that will push it to galaxy.
But with R this didn't work. (so far)

Just to note for those Perl people developing tools with Galaxy and
wanting to interface with R there are a couple of libraries out there
to do this for you:
