    Hi Aine Fairbrother,

     

    Thanks for writing in. Can you share the workspace where you are seeing this issue with GROUP_FireCloud-Support@firecloud.org by clicking the Share button in your workspace? The Share option is in the three-dots menu at the top-right.

    1. Add GROUP_FireCloud-Support@firecloud.org to the User email field and press enter on your keyboard.
    2. Click Save.

     

    Let us know the workspace name, as well as the relevant submission and workflow IDs. We’ll be happy to take a closer look as soon as we can.

     

    Best,

    Samantha

    Hi Samantha, 

    Thanks for getting back to me. I have shared that with the specified email. 

    The details for the job that threw up the error above are below:

    Workspace ID: aine-phd/amppd_pilot_aine
    Workflow ID: e93c860f-f0c4-45d7-906f-df976e629eea
     
    Thanks,

    So, just to be clear, when I try to run the workflow without specifying a docker in 'runtime', the error is that I haven't specified a docker. Is there a default one based on my environment that I can input, or do custom workflows have to run off dockers?

    Hi Aine Fairbrother,

     

    Looks like your workspace is protected by an authorization domain. Can you please add svelasqu@broadinstitute.org to the authorization domain so I can access the workspace?

     

    Thanks,

    Samantha

    Hi Samantha,

    I have shared the workspace with your BI email, but not sure I can add that email to the authorisation domain as it’s amp-pd-researchers, am I incorrect?

    Hi Aine Fairbrother,

     

    That's fine. Can you instead share a screenshot of your workflow configuration?

     

    Thanks,
    Samantha

    Hi Aine Fairbrother,

     

    Thanks for sharing those screenshots. It looks like the issue is that you are passing the sample set ID get_mt_coverage_2021-01-12T18-01-55 to the bam_file variable, which is expecting a file. 

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

     

    Best,

    Samantha

    Hi Samantha, 

    Thank you for clearing that up, I think I misunderstood the 'this.' syntax. This is very new to me!

    I do have one more question, apologies if it is an ignorant one - how do I populate the 'runtime' section of the WDL script? When I do not define a docker, it produces an error that no docker is supplied. But I'm not sure which dockers are available for me to use.

    Thank you for your help,

    Aine

    Hi Aine Fairbrother,

     

    No problem. If you haven't already, I would suggest reading through our Workflows Quickstart Tutorial to get a better idea of how to run your workflows on Terra.

    Defining a Docker is required when running your workflow on Terra. However, we aren't able to tell users which Docker to use since it's highly variable based on what you are trying to do. You mentioned that your workflow is based off of samtools, so if samtools has an official Docker of sorts then you can definitely use that.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions.

     

    Best,

    Samantha
