Pushing a Data Freeze

(part 2 of Data freezes)

In part 1 we created a data-freeze.  When you select that freeze project you will see a Certify and Share to Central action available for it which you can use to push the freeze to the central hub.

On successful authentication you’ll be asked to select which of your cohorts you wish to push.  If you havent yet created the cohort, clicking the Create New Cohort button will open up the hub site for you to do this.

On selecting a cohort to push to you’ll see a dialogue that tells you things have started and when you click OK on that dialogue you’ll see that the project has an “in progress” banner.

When the data-freeze has been pushed the banner will change.

Now that the freeze has been pushed to the central xnat instance the last step is to enable the freeze on the hub which is covered in part 3.
