Hi,

I found my problem:
in the production instances universe_wsgi.ini
the value for "collect_outputs_from" was different that in my VM.
It is set to:
collect_outputs_from = job_working_directory

Perhaps one could update the documentation that deals with multiple output 
files and mention that the $__new_file_path__ variable is not necessary, it is 
sufficient to name the output files correctly (i.e. 
primary_123_output2_visible_fastq,…) in the job work dir.

Best,
Chris

universe_wsgi.ini
