The asynchronous protocol should be working fine.
Can you confirm that your flow is similar to:
- User starts at Galaxy, gets sent to external resource with 'GALAXY_URL'
- User browses external site and selects options, sends data to Galaxy by using
the GALAXY_URL parameter, providing with it a URL parameter that contains where
Galaxy should inform the external site of the final GALAXY_URL
- Galaxy contacts 'URL', with a new GALAXY_URL (the page content of accessing
'URL' should end with 'OK')
- When data is ready, the external site contacts the new GALAXY_URL, providing
'URL' which contains final data and 'STATUS' which should be 'OK' (when
- Data is loaded into the Galaxy history.
If your tool flow is following this template, but not working, or if there are
some other problems, can you provide the log output of trying to use the tool
and any other information that might be helpful? Please let us know if we can
provide additional information.
Thanks for using Galaxy,
