To access the system, launch a web browser and go to the following link:
From that page, anyone with a Level-2 account and med.umich.edu email address can authenticate to send files, in the form of packages, to other UMHS personnel or someone at another institution. Patients or any other Non-UMHS individuals can send packages to a UMHS person by clicking the Register and Send Files link.
With MiShare, uploaded packages are not transferred from UMHS systems to external systems. Rather, packages remain on the server and must be retrieved from the UMHS server by the recipient using a provided link. The MiShare system can only be used to transfer files either through SSH/sFTP or through a web https; it is not possible to mount a MiShare volume as a drive letter for a desktop computer. As files are uploaded and bundled in packages, they are also encrypted to allow secure transfer. Packages will currently only be available for five days. Packages older than 5 days are automatically deleted.
