    Looking at my list of 16,000 tasks, only 4,000 are running after 24 hours. This seems like a problem. However, it might just be the case that each of those 4,000 are running dozens of shards. It wo...

    Currently about 3,000 jobs of my 15,000 job workflow are running simultaneously. The pipelines API supports more than that (I've hit over 10,000 when using dsub), so it would be nice if Terra event...

  • tools > Display 'optional' inputs with their defaults, rather than hiding them

    By default, 'optional' inputs are hidden in the Terra display of WDL tools. As an alternative, it might be nice to show the 'optional' inputs by default, pre-populated with their default values.

  • Allow folders within Workspaces

    I have dozens of notebooks within each workspace. For serious usage or usage with collaborators, I'd need to be able to create subfolders.

  • Automatically insert quotes based on the variable type

    When running a task, we have already defined the type of each of our input: files, strings, integers, etc. However, the application still requires us to enclose strings and files with quotes. This ...
