Ahh... missed that. Sorry (and thanks for putting together the page :) ). It seems like we are on the same page - I have created a Trello card for 'stronger' toolbox filters.
https://trello.com/c/Sg8D2PBj It occurs to me there may another way to accomplish admin tool functionality - and in an even more "locked down" fashion. I think you may be able to setup another Galaxy process with a similar config but a different tool_config_file setting and it should act as its own handler+web process as well. Then you could configure your proxy so admin requests come through this process - or maybe it could have its own URL, etc.... Maybe this is crazy - I am sure Nate will respond is this is non-sense :). -John On Tue, Dec 17, 2013 at 6:26 PM, Eric Rasche <rasche.e...@yandex.ru> wrote: > > -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- > Hash: SHA1 > > John, > > I've been using the dynamic jobs and they've been working beautifully! > (For context, I wrote the initial revision of the Access Control page > based off of my readings and experiences setting it up in galaxy). > > I, for one, would be in favour of "stronger" filters in addition to the > current versions of filtering, mostly due to my/IT's paranoid nature :) > The current filters seem to accomplish exactly what they were designed > to, and I see no reason to replace them. > > On 12/17/2013 06:15 PM, John Chilton wrote: >> Agreed with Dannon, it is a bug that they are showing up in the workflow >> editor but in general toolbox filters are not meant as a security > mechanism. >> >> You can block access to running specific tools (filtered or not) using >> dynamic job destinations.
