From this dialog, you can edit the desired update site(s) to add your authentication information.

Configuring Fiji update site

The Fiji update site uses webDAV authentication. To upload something, you will need to create a wiki account.

In the Manage update sites dialog, on the Fiji update site line, add the following information:

  • Host = webdav:YourFijiWikiLogin
  • Directory on host = ./

Note that your username will always start with an upper case letter. It should look like this:

You can now close the Manage update sites window and go on to Uploading your resources.

Configuring ImageJ2 update site

The ImageJ2 update site uses ssh authentication. You will need a login with the imageJ update site.

In the Manage update sites dialog, on the ImageJ update site line, add the following information:

  • Host = yourImageJLogin@update.imagej.net
  • Directory on host = /home/imagej/update-site/

It should look like this:

You can now close the Manage update sites window and go on to Uploading your resources.
