The "where did this file come from?" feature Answered

Can Terra implement a "where did this file come from?" feature?

The idea would be that you can point to a file in the Terra data table, and (if it was generated by a workflow) it will tell you which job created it!

I discovered that, if I forget which workflow I ran to create a certain file (since multiple workflows can often create the same type of output, even with the same name), it really is hideously complicated to try to sift through my jobs and figure it out.
