I've now been running WDLs in Terra long enough that some older workflow details have been archived. In my experience, it is very common to need to go back past a year to look for details of old workflow runs. It is quite common for a full project to span over a year start to finish. Then when you're writing up a methods section of a paper, the awesome thing about Terra was that I could look back and see exactly what I did! But now I have to submit a request that may take 5 business days.
Terra support is great, and so I'm sure it's not a big hassle. But still, I'd really prefer if I could just browse through my old workflow details on my own. A several-day latency for each workflow can add up to a lot of extra work for me and for Terra support.
What if the workflow metadata was archived and indexed in the workspace google bucket rather than in a central Terra repository? Terra can keep backups that are always archived and never indexed. Could that work?
