    Hi Bo Li,

    Thank you for your suggestion. Can you provide a few more details for what kind of functionality you would like to see? Any details you can provide for your use case and what kind of impact it would have on your work would be very helpful.

    Thank you,

    Jason

    Sure thing!

    Currently, we are working with the Terra team on a workshop regarding single-cell RNA-seq data analysis.

    We put demo data on a public google bucket and we'd like to turn on requester pay option. 

    However, we cannot do this because cromwell does not allow folder transfer.  Please see below for a detailed explanation:

    1) We need to copy folders containing FASTQ files as input for cellranger.
    2) Cromwell currently does not support copying of folders
    3) Thus, we have to use 'gsutil' inside our WDL to 'manually' copy these folders to the VM
    4) However, in the WDL level, there is no way that we can know the billing object (and we should not know it) and thus we can now copy data from a requester pay bucket.

    Hi Bo Li,

    Thank you for elaborating. I have created a ticket with this information for our engineering team to take a look at.

    Best,

    Samantha
