No way to unset input with a default value

If I have an input:

String? my_input = "test" defined in a WDL, there is no way to set my_input to undefined through the Terra user interface. An empty string is still considered a value when specifying a command line with optional parameters: ${"--test " + my_input}.

    Hi Joshua, 

    You mentioned that there is no way to set the value of optional variable my_input to undefined from the Terra user interface. Can you provide a screenshot or more information of what you are describing in this instance? Do you mean that from the Method Configuration page of a Workflow, you are unable to leave the Attribute for the optional variable blank?

    Thanks for the extra details!
