noAddress: true results in stalling jobs

    Due to the fact that misconfigured networks combined with the noAddress: true setting was resulting in stalled jobs for users, we currently ignore this option on Terra.

    If you set noAddress: true in your WDL, you will not see this function working for your submitted job. An external IP address will be assigned to your Google VM.

    What is the status of this? This sounds exactly like something we could use right now. Thank you, Mike

    Hi Mike,

    Thanks for checking in on this. I've been informed by our engineers that Google has built in a fix that will produce a timely failure in the case of misconfigured network, which would cover these cases.

    If you are experiencing an issue you believe is related to the handling of noAddress, please let us know and we'll be happy to investigate further!

    Kind regards,
