How do I transfer files to and from JARVICE?

JARVICE Storage Vaults

The default storage location is /data in your application environment and is where JARVICE applications primarily read and write data.

You can upload and download your data at any time whether you are running jobs or not. Here are two different ways to transfer data on Nimbix:

  • Nimbix File Manager (recommended)
  • Secure FTP protocol (SFTP) w/ Nimbix File Manager

Let's take a look at each method below.

  • This will expand the app card, click on “File Manager” in the bottom left corner.
  • This will take you to a “Task Builder” screen.  At this point, unless instructed otherwise, take all of the defaults, and click the green “Submit” button.
  • You’ll be returned to your Dashboard. After a few seconds, you’ll see a new job titled “JARVICE File Manager: <job Number>”, click on "Click here to connect"


  • At this point you should now see the content of your /data folder and be able to drag and drop files to and from your local machine.
