Better descriptions in job history?

Smithies, Russell

Not sure if I’ve overlooked a setting somewhere, but is it possible to customize or tweak the job descriptions that are displayed in the history?

Eg. “Compute sequence length on data 1” isn’t very descriptive, but if perhaps the annotation field or a description field could be added it would make identification much easier eg. “Compute sequence length on data 1 [Burkholderia pseudomallei K96243]” or even for datatypes that have a defined definition line, perhaps a mouse-over hover could be added with the accession or definition pulled from the input file? These mouse-over hovers are already used to identify the view, edit, and delete icons so no additional libraries wold be used.

I could probably hack something up but thought it better to try and get the feature included.

Any thoughts?

 

Thanx,

 

--Russell

Error Loading Field Data

Todd Oakley
Hi All,
     We are getting errors when creating a workflow. Some of the tools,
when selected, say only "error loading field data". As such, we cannot
use them in workflows, even though the tools work fine in Analyze Data.

     This seems like it is correlated with the fact that we developed
these tools, and changed their names along the way. If this is the
cause, one solution could be for us to clear Tool Versions/Version
lineage in our galaxy instance. Is there a way to clear our cluttered
tool lineages?


Thanks for any insights,

Todd Oakley, UCSB

The Galaxy user can manually edit them (or do this in a workflow).
The Galaxy tool authors have some control as well, e.g. $on_string

There's been some past discussion of this from a tool developer
perspective, e.g. https://trello.com/c/JnhOEqow and
http://dev.list.galaxyproject.org/Using-input-dataset-names-in-output-dataset-names-td4662481.html

See also the "Inheritance Chain" accessed via the "i" icon of
a dataset in your history. That might be tool much for a tooltip :(

Regards,

Peter

Problem with Tools in Workflow Editor

Hi All,
     I posted this earlier in the week, but haven't heard anything. I
changed the title of the email to hopefully attract more attention.
