'git clone https://github.com/galaxyproject/galaxy' command will get you on the 'dev' branch of Galaxy. Unless you want to develop new features I recommend you to use the latest Galaxy release, described here: https://docs.galaxyproject.org/en/master/releases/15.10_announce.html

We are also tracking the bug you described on this ticket: https://github.com/galaxyproject/galaxy/issues/1743

Hi Martin,

I used "git clone” to get the galaxy from github site, so I think our galaxy version should be the latest. I didn’t see any error from the JS console but I found if I didn’t use apache as the proxy, the "copy shared history” function seems working. I am not sure what went wrong for the apache proxy because I don’t have any other issue except this “copy shared history” function. Thanks for your information.

Hi LW,

1) The described 'copy' feature works well for me on usegalaxy.org. However the 'view and import' activity does fail for me too. We will look into that. What version of Galaxy are you using? Do you see any errors in the JS console of your browser?
2) 'purge' does only remove all roles from the group, not the group itself. Galaxy does not delete entities, only marks them as deleted in the DB.
3) should be fixed after merge of https://github.com/galaxyproject/tools-iuc/pull/596

Thank you for using Galaxy

I’ve recently installed a new galaxy server and I found some weird behaviors of admin jobs. 

First, a shared history can not be copied as a new history. For example, user A shared one of his history with user B. User B can see this shared history through “histories shred with me” link, but when user B clicks “copy” of this history nothing happened. However, user B can view this history if he clicks “view” but if he then clicks “import history”, a new galaxy home page will be displayed on the center panel (as shown in the attached screenshot).   

Second, the administer can only delete groups but he can not purge those deleted groups. In other words, when the administer clicks the “purge” button of a deleted group, nothing will happen on this group. It still shows on the table with status as “deleted”  

Third, when installed the “package_fontconfig_2_11_1” through tool shed, the status of this package always shows as “installing tool dependencies”. We restarted our galaxy server several times but this message never went away (it always shows on the “monitor installing repositories” page). 

We really have no idea how to fix these strange behaviors and the web log file also don’t have any error message. Any suggestion? Thank you.
