Adding my own reference disk image to be mounted to the workflow task VMs
- 3 comments
Currently, Terra allows users to mount a reference disk image when running a workflow, allowing a task to mount the disk with reference files instead of localizing it to the running VM.
The reference disk image is hardset so you can only use the reference files (hg19 and hg38) that are already available on the disk. It's not possible to use your own reference files.
Allow users to specify their own reference disks.
Curious if there's been any work on this front? It would be extremely useful to attach disks to my workflows. It gets fairly expensive to repeatedly localize large inputs.
Thanks for writing in! I'm going to see where we are with this feature request, and let you know once I have an update.
Hi again Willy,
I did some research and as it turns out, this feature request is on our roadmap, but we don't have a current date for its implementation. I've added your name to ticket, and if it's implemented, this space will be updated.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
