IonReporterUploader command-line utility

The IonReporterUploader command-line utility is an command-line alternative to the IonReporterUploader plugin that is included with Torrent Suite™ Software. You can download the IonReporterUploader command-line utility at: http://iru.ionreporter.thermofisher.com/.

You can use the IonReporterUploader command-line utility to transfer analysis results files to Ion Reporter™ Software and to define samples, based on the transferred files. The IonReporterUploader command-line utility uses your login ID to transfer run data from Torrent Suite™ Software to Ion Reporter™ Software. The utility supports these transfer scenarios:

  • Transfer a single BAM or VCF file.

    The name of a BAM file that is uploaded to Ion Reporter™ Software cannot exceed 200 characters.

  • Transfer all results files for a Torrent Suite™ Software analysis.

  • Transfer results files that are in a single flat folder.

  • Transfer multiple files that are not restricted to a single folder.

You can later analyze the samples with Ion Reporter™ Software. The IonReporterUploader command-line utility can be run on your Torrent Server, or can be run on any standard (and current) computer that runs Linux™, Mac OS™, or Windows™ Operating System. You can enter IonReporterUploader command-line utility options through command line arguments, or through a properties file.

Note: IonReporterUploader command-line utility should not be used for uploading samples from references other than hg19 and GRCh38. Although E-coli and animal reference genomes can be used in Torrent Suite™ Software, they are not supported in Ion Reporter™ Software.

IonReporterUploader command-line utility supports the upload of combined run results that are output by using the Combine Alignments option in the Torrent Suite™ Software. Uploads of combined run results are not supported when the IonReporterUploader plugin is used in Torrent Suite™ Software.
