Hi Jun,

I asked Dannon (our workflow lead developer) and he suggested just using the existing workflow datastet renaming functions. These are in the right panel when you click on a dataset within the workflow editor (as you probably know).


Inherited naming is not something that is currently being worked on, but you can always start a Trello card and see if it gathers votes or the attention of a contributor from the larger development community:

Take care,

Dear Galaxy develop team:

Normally I generate the workflow from history. It works fine except one annoying problem: the display of step/tool is just the tool name, which can cause confusion in a big workflow. For example, I have a mixture of samples from multiple species and do the BLAST against Human, Virus, Mouse etc which will call BLAST several times. To make results distinguishable, I will rename the dataset in the history. But this will be lost when creating workflow from history. The workflow will have duplicate steps named as BLAST while I really want to have steps displayed as BLAST against Human etc. Could you tell me whether I have done something wrong? If not, could you kindly add this functionality into the new release of Galaxy? If it is possible to customize the tool display in the workflow, how to write the wrapper as setting the label to allow this?

Best regards!

Jun
