This topic covers the quickest and easiest way to set up to run LabKey tutorials using a free trial of LabKey Server. If you want to run tutorials not supported in the trial environment, or already have access to LabKey Server, see Set Up for Tutorials - Non-Trial.

Tutorials you can run using a free trial of LabKey Server are marked with this badge.

LabKey Trial Server

To run the LabKey Tutorials, you need three things:

1. An account on a running LabKey Server instance. It only takes a few minutes to create your own LabKey Trial Server:

2. A basic familiarity with navigation, folder creation, and utilities like web parts. Use this topic alongside your new instance: 3. A tutorial workspace project where you are an administrator and can create new folders.

  • On the home page of your trial server, click Create.
  • Enter the Name "Tutorials".
    • If you plan to share this trial server with other users, consider using "Tutorials-Username" so you can each have your own workspace.
  • Leave the default folder type selection, "Collaboration," and click Next.
  • Leave the default permission selection, "My User Only," and click Next.
  • Skip the advanced settings and click Finish.
  • (Optional): To enhance this project, you can add some custom content making it easier to use.


Congratulations, you can now begin running tutorials in this workspace on your trial server.
