iCommands are a set of commands for Unix and Windows that are used in the iRODS system. Before you can use iRODS iCommands, you must first install iCommands and configure your environment. If you have already set up your environment, skip this step.
To share data with a user, you must give the user at minimum read permission to the parent directory that contains the file and any other parent folders within the folder hierarchy.
The following table contains some of the more common iCommands:
|iCommand option||Description||Help command|
|List contents of iRODS directories |
List contents of iRODS directories and all associated permissions
|ichmod read |
|Grant read-only permission level for specified user to selected file or folder. |
Grant read and write permission level for specified user to selected file or folder.
Grant full ownership permission level for specified user to selected file or folder.
Remove permission level for the user to the file or folder.
For more information on using these and other iRODS commands, read Using iCommands on the CyVerse Wiki, see the iRODS Documentation on the iRODS website, or enter the iCommand and -h to view the help file in the terminal window.
