If you have a JSON file of analysis results (only obtained via rba_reactome_analysis_download with the result argument set to "results", or "results_gz"), you can import the results back to Reactome and retrieve a token.
This is useful when you want to use other Reactome services which require a token but you do not have a token or your token has been expired (i.e. more than 7 days passed from your analysis).

rba_reactome_analysis_import(input, input_format = NULL, ...)



A local file path or URL that points to your -optionally gzipped- JSON file.


(Optional) This function will automatically identify your supplied input's format. But in case of unexpected issues or if you want to be explicit, set this argument to one of:

  • "file": If you supplied a local file path pointing to the JSON file.

  • "url": If you supplied a URL pointing to the JSON file.


rbioapi option(s). See rba_options's arguments manual for more information on available options.


A list containing the new token and other information of your imported results.
