Hi Alex,

In our lab, files are often fractions of an experiments, but they are named by their creators in whatever way they like. I put that code in to standardize fraction naming, in case a tool needs input from two files that originate from the same fraction (but have been treated in different ways). In those cases, in my fork, Galaxy always picks the files with the same task_%d numbers.

I can't help you very much right now, as I'm currently away from work until October, but I hope this explains why its in there.

Hi guys,

We've been using Galaxy for a year now, we created our own Galaxy fork where we were making changes to adapt Galaxy to our requirements. As we need "multiple file dataset" - we were using Johns' fork for that initially.

Now we are trying to use "The most updated version of the multiple file dataset stuff" https://bitbucket.org/msiappdev/galaxy-extras/ directly as we don't want to maintain our own version.

One of the problems we have - when we upload multiple files - their file names are changed (_task_%d suffix is added to their names).

On our branch we simply removed the code which does it, but now we wonder if it is possible to avoid this renaming somehow? I.e. make it configurable?

Is it really necessary to change the file names?

I keep the files matched by keeping a _task_%d suffix to their names. So each task is matched with its correct counterpart with the same number.
