You may have seen emails with subjects like Terra: Data has been added to <workspace_name> workspace! and wish to no longer be notified of new additions of changes to the data of the workspace. There's a very simple way to toggle these notifications using the FireCloud interface!
Note: Our engineers are currently working on porting the functionality to toggle these notifications to Terra so you no longer have to use FireCloud to do it. This article will be updated once the feature has been ported over.
How to toggle notifications
First, navigate to the Terra workspace in the FireCloud UI.
- Visit portal.firecloud.org
- Ensure Workspaces is selected at the top
- Search for the workspace you're interested in and select it
If you are already looking at the workspace in Terra, you can simply change the URL to start with portal.firecloud.org instead of app.terra.bio. This will bring you straight to the FireCloud page for the workspace.
For example: app.terra.bio/#workspaces/broad-firecloud-dsde/Exome-Analysis-Pipeline_copy
would become portal.firecloud.org/#workspaces/broad-firecloud-dsde/Exome-Analysis-Pipeline_copy
Once you're viewing the workspace in FireCloud, select the bell icon on the right-hand side.
And toggle the notifications on (left) or off (right).
