7.6 GraphPad Prism
Posted by LabArchives Support on 17 October 2014 09:32 AM

GraphPad Prism (Version 5.04 / 5.0d and higher) has been integrated with LabArchives to enable users to directly export projects from Prism into the LabArchives Notebook. Additionally, when a Prism project is opened from within your Notebook, it may be re-saved into the same Page from which is resides, preserving both versions of the file.

To learn how to integrate LabArchives with GraphPad Prism, please follow the directions below. 

First, open GraphPad Prism. When opened, you will see an option for LabArchives, highlighted in the image below.


Once clicked, a new window will appear asking to log into an active LabArchives account. If the user does not currently have one, an account can be created through GraphPad prism by choosing "Try LabArchives Free"


If logging into an active LabArchives account, a new window will appear to input the user's login and password, shown below. 


If you are a Single Sign-On User, to log into Graph Prism with LabArchives:

1. Log into your LabArchives account on the website via single-sign-om system (Shibboleth).

2. Select "LA App Authentication" under the "User Management" menu.

3. A "Password token for external applications" screen will appear. The token can be used in lieu of a password to log into the account. However, keep in mind there is a time limit for this token when it can be used (which is one hour). But if the token expires, a new one can always be generated.

Once logged into an active LabArchives account, all notebooks associated with the account can be selected from the drop-down menu, shown below. Any GraphPad Prism files associated with the notebook will show up as well. 


From here, you can open a selected GraphPad Prism file, edit it, and save it back to your notebook. To do this, there is a LabArchives icon near the top right-hand corner of the program, shown below. You will have the option to save it to LabArchives, open a file from LabArchives, log out of LabArchives, or learn more about LabArchives.


GraphPad Prism for PC: Once GraphPad Prism is installed, create a configuration file into the folder where you've saved Prism. Depending on the version of Prism you are running, this will be different but may look like C:\Program Files\GraphPad\Prism 6. Restart the application.

GraphPad Prism for Mac: Create a directory called /Library/Application Support/GraphPad/Prism/Config and create a configuration file to the directory.

Configuration File for Australian Users

If you don't want to create your own configuration file, you can download this file labarchivesconfig.txt

Create a .txt configuration file with the following information:

Login =
ErrorConnecting =Prism cannot connect to the AU LabArchives instance
TryAccountBlurb=The University has a site license for LabArchives, so the free trial is not available

Once you are ready to save your file, be sure the name of that file includes labarchivesconfig.txt and saved in the same folder where Prism was saved in your operating system. See picture below.
