I had included this as a follow-up question a week ago to a previously answered question, but seeing as that problem was solved, I figured a new post would be a better way to ask about this.
How do I specify an array of length 1 in a .tsv file which I will upload as sample metadata? I have a column which I want to contain an array of files (with length 1 in this case) for each sample. Here are the patterns I have tried:
- [ "gs://path/to/file.fastq" ]
- [ gs://path/to/file.fastq ]
The input seems to be processed as a string, then coerced into an array of length 1 containing that string (e.g. the first input would result in an array ["[\"gs://path/to/file.fastq\"]"] )
It still works if I just upload the value as "gs://path/to/file.fastq", but as you said previously, the coercion from this to an array is not intentional and should not be relied upon, so I wanted to figure out how to get the explicit array input working.
