1. Identify notebooks in old clusters
To see what notebook VMs you created under each billing project, and when you created them, go to https://app.terra.bio/#clusters
See a virtual machine or cluster created before August 1st? Note the Billing Project name and keep reading.
2. Check content of affected notebooks
To check what notebooks are affected, go to “Your Workspaces” and filter by the Billing Project (from step one above). Within the workspace, check in the notebooks tab of the filtered workspaces to see what analysis you ran.
3. Save any data you want to keep
If there’s output data from a notebook you want to keep, you need to explicitly save it to the workspace bucket. This article explains exactly how. If you don’t save your output data to permanent storage, it will be lost when you delete your cloud environment.
4. Create a new cloud environment
When you are ready to create a new cloud environment (e.g. you’ve copied your files off), click on the Cloud Environment widget at the top right corner of your screen and then click "Delete Runtime" near the bottom. Read this article to learn more about your deletion options with respect to the detachable memory associated with your virtual machine.
Once you've clicked through the deletion steps, ff you do not need to customize your cloud environment, you can simply create a new cloud environment runtime. Alternatively, if you want to select your compute power, or enter a start-up script, click on the "Customize" option to see different application configurations and other custom settings.
5. What if you used startup scripts?
If you used the GATK custom startup script from workshops, the URL should be in the notebook itself, if you will run the notebook analysis again. If you used your own custom startup script but can’t remember which one you used, we can help you find that information. Email us at email@example.com or slack us at #dsp-comms-user-ed for help.
