Resource assignment


Assign a resource object of class 'ResourceClient' to a R symbol in the Datashield R session.


  async = TRUE,
  success = NULL,
  error = NULL



DSConnection-class object or a list of DSConnection-classs.


Name of the R symbol.


Fully qualified name of a resource reference in the data repository (can be a vector or must be the same in each data repository); or a named list of fully qualified resource names (one per server name); or a data frame with 'server' and 'resource' columns (such as the one that is used in datashield.login)


Whether the result of the call should be retrieved asynchronously. When TRUE (default) the calls are parallelized over the connections, when the connection supports that feature, with an extra overhead of requests.


Callback function that will be called each time an assignment is successful. The expected function signature is the connection/study name. Default is NULL (no callback).


Callback function that will be called each time the assignment request has failed. The expected function signature is the connection/study name and the error message. Default is NULL (no callback).

# and server names must match.
