globus mkdir - Create a directory on an endpoint


globus mkdir ENDPOINT:PATH


The globus mkdir command creates a directory on the given endpoint and path.

Automatic Endpoint Activation

This command requires all endpoints it uses to be activated. It will attempt to auto-activate any endpoints that are not active, but if auto-activation fails, you will need to manually activate the endpoint. See globus endpoint activate for more details.


--map-http-status TEXT

Map non success HTTP response codes to exit codes other than 1. e.g. "--map-http-satus 403=0,404=0" would exit with 0 even if a 403 or 404 http error code was received. Valid exit codes are 0,1,50-99.

-F, --format [json|text]

Set the output format for stdout. Defaults to "text".

--jq, --jmespath EXPR

Supply a JMESPath expression to apply to json output. Takes precedence over any specified --format and forces the format to be json processed by this expression.

A full specification of the JMESPath language for querying JSON structures may be found at

-h, --help

Show help text for this command.

-v, --verbose

Control the level of output.

Use -v or --verbose to show warnings and any additional text output.

Use -vv to add informative logging.

Use -vvv to add debug logging and full stack on any errors. (equivalent to -v --debug)


Create a directory under your home directory:

$ ep_id=ddb59aef-6d04-11e5-ba46-22000b92c6ec
$ mkdir ep_id:~/testfolder


0 on success.

1 if a network or server error occurred, unless --map-http-status has been used to change exit behavior on http error codes.

2 if the command was used improperly.
