Allows users to type a workflow version in the version dropdown

Post author

When you export a workflow from Dockstore to Terra, all the workflows associated with the repo become visible in the workflow version dropdown. This is not a problem if you only have a few workflows, but it's a large problem if you have a LOT. For example, if try to change the workflow version of the Optimus featured workspace, you have to scroll way through the drop-down (see image).


It's actually become quite difficult to update the workflows because the scroll is becoming slow with all the options. The solution would be if you could type the name of the workflow in the box. It would be nice if the feature was similar to the feature used for selecting Workspace names when you go to export a workflow to a workspace.

    This would make a HUGE difference in the usability of this dropdown and the ability of users to update workflow versions easily. Right now, the amount of scrolling that is sometimes required is a bit excessive and slow.
