Hi again,

I have an important update - I was incorrect about workflow transfer between Galaxy instances and where to edit. In summary, it is important to do the workflow editing up-front before the export, instead of after import. I'll explain why.


While it is now possible to import workflows from other Galaxy instances (any), once actually in that new instance, if that workflow contains tools that are not in the new target instance, there is nothing that can be done with it (editing or running will result in a server error). This is a known open issue with the workflow developers.

So, when you plan to import into the public main Galaxy instance, you will need to modify any workflow in the source instance before exporting it to make certain that it only contains tools that are present in the public main Galaxy instance. If a server error results from an imported workflow, an unavailable tool present in the workflow is the most likely root cause of the problem.

If you plan to import into a local or cloud instance, then you have the choice of either modifying the workflow and/or adding all of the workflow tools to your local/cloud instance, and then importing the workflow. You do not import the workflow first as this will result in an error - if it occurs, delete the workflow and import again after the required tools are added.

Good question and I apologize for getting this detail incorrect in the original reply.

Best,

Jen

Incorrect start -->>
It would not be possible to share a workflow between two Galaxy instance using the built in "Share or Publish" methods, however, you should be able to download a workflow from one Galaxy instance and then "Upload or import workflow" into the public main Galaxy instance (this button is on the "Workflow" home page). Please note that any tools included in your workflow that were available in the other instance, but that are not available on the public main Galaxy instance, would not be functional, so the workflow will likely need to be edited before use.

Moving FASTQ datasets from other instances should also be straightforward - download, then upload these to the public main Galaxy instance using FTP. If you are having trouble downloading workflows or datasets, then the host Galaxy instance should be contacted.

I have another question in this regard when I tried to upload the FASTq files via web link or FTP the job is never completed. I have tried it couple of times. This problem is there from last couple of months. Are there so me changes which have been implemented recently which is not allowing me to upload the files. Indeed I have seen from last month or so too many messages suggesting either Tophat job stuck or job is not completed or unable to upload the file. I am not if all tehse problems are related (storage) or not. Can someone from Galaxy team advice.

At this time, there are no known issues with upload functions. If you are having problems with URL data transfer from another Galaxy instance (or really, any 3rd party source), you can try to download the data locally to your desktop in a terminal prompt (as a test) with the command:

% curl -O 'copied_link_location_from_dataset_history_or_workflow_or_other_URL'

If this is successful, then a load into Galaxy should be successful. If this is unsuccessful, first contact the source to check if the data is publicly accessible, as they may have advice about requirements concerning user/passwords in the URL. Once that is worked out and a URL load still fails, please submit a bug report from the problematic load (leaving the error dataset undeleted in your history) and we will examine.

The main public instance occasionally has brief server/cluster issues that impacted jobs, but these are very small portion of the overall volume of jobs processed, and a re-run is the solution. We do our best to respond quickly as soon as a problem is detected.

Reported delays due to high usage volume is a different matter. The public main Galaxy instance has substantial dedicated resources, but there are times when we still get very busy. If your analysis needs are urgent or your jobs are numerous, then a local or cloud instance is the recommended alternative: http://getgalaxy.org.

To be clear, you had FTP upload processes that were started but never completed? If so, the connection may be been interrupted. When this occurs, an FTP client will allow you to restart an upload so that it will begin again where it left off. To do this, re-establish the connection first, then resume the transfer. http://wiki.g2.bx.psu.edu/FTPUpload

Hopefully this addresses your concerns,
