API updating meta data for a history

takadonet
This post was updated on .
Hey,

I was curious if it was possible to allow the API to change tags associated
with a history? At the moment in the galaxy code it's forbidden.

Having the ability to add tags using the API would be helpful of
associating multiple histories to a particular project. So later, it would
be easier to 'select' all the histories to perform a bulk action. Ie
download all contigs.fasta from histories that tag with
'project_Ecoli_June20_2013'.


Thanks

Phil

Re: API updating meta data for a history

Jeremy Goecks
Take a look at the item_tags API controller; you can manage (add/delete/show) history, dataset, and workflow tags using it. There's not much documentation for it yet, but it should be pretty straight-forward. Let us know if you have questions.

Best,
J.
