FIX: Change installation check for flex_extract's v7.1 gateway and destination parameter

Description (last modified by pesei)

If the software is to be installed on any ECMWF server, the setup.sh script checks whether all necessary parameter are set, namely ECUID, ECGID, GATEWAY and DESTINATION.

This approach assumes to have a local gateway server in place! If this is not the case and the user will just work on ECMWF server directly and sends the resulting files via ssh, it is NOT necessary to set GATEWAY and DESTINATION.

Check needs to be changed.

Current workaround:

If you use the ecgate or cca/b version of flex_extract you have to set the GATEWAY and DESTINATION parameters. It is enough to set dummy values in the setup.sh script. E.g.

GATEWAY=dummy@gateway
DESTINATION=dummy@genericSftp

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

For the installation and application process on ECMWF server's I changed the check to just force setting ECUID and ECGID. They are needed to set paths and send emails.

Print out a warning if GATEWAY and/or DESTINATION is not set. File transfers will not work.
