runs submit

Submit one or more Workflow Runs

Synopsis

omics workbench runs submit [INPUT_OVERRIDE...] 
  --url=URL_OR_ID 
  [--engine=ENGINE_ID]
  [--tags=JSON_DATA]
  [--default-params=JSON_DATA]
  [--engine-params=JSON_DATA]
  [--workflow-params=JSON_DATA,[--workflow-params=JSON_DATA...]]
 

Description

omics workbench runs submit facilitates the submission of a workflow for execution one or more times against the same execution engine.

Examples

Submit a single workflow for execution using the default engine and inputs passed in the input overrides

omics workbench runs submit \
  --url 3bce2a53-c9f1-4b3f-8024-a849e64adb97/hello-world \
  hello.name=Suzy \
  hello.greeting=Hello

If workflows are stored in a file called inputs.json you can use the special @ operator to load the file contents

omics workbench runs submit \
  --url 3bce2a53-c9f1-4b3f-8024-a849e64adb97/hello-world \
  @inputs.json

The above example can be modified to pass additional tag metadata. Tags are arbitrary key:value pairs that provide additional context and can be used later for filtering runs

omics workbench runs submit \
  --url 3bce2a53-c9f1-4b3f-8024-a849e64adb97/hello-world \
  --tags sample=suzy \
  hello.name=Suzy \
  hello.greeting=Hello

If you want to run the workflow using an engine other than the default, you can retrieve the engine id either from the web application or the engines list command

omics workbench runs submit \
  --url 3bce2a53-c9f1-4b3f-8024-a849e64adb97/hello-world \
  --engine my-engine-12d
  --tags sample=suzy \
  hello.name=Suzy \
  hello.greeting=Hello

Positional Arguments

INPUT_OVERRIDES

Positional JSON Data that will take precedence over default-params and workflow-params. If a value specified in the override collides with a value in the default-params or workflow-params, they will be overridden with the value provided in the override. If a key with the same name is already provided in the default-params or workflow-params, they will be overridden with the value provided in the override.

Flags

--url=URL OR WORKFLOW ID

The URL to the workflow file (*.wdl). Only URLs from workflow-service are currently supported. Workflow URLs are a string that can correspond to any of the following:

  • A concatenation of the <workflow_internal_id>/<version_name>. These values can be retrieved from the Workbench workflows page, or you can also retrieve them by using the workflows list or workflows describe commands

  • URL from the workflows page in Workbench (ie: https://workbench.dnastack/workflows/<workflow_id>/overview)

  • Complete URL for a workflow or a workflow version from the workflow service

--engine=ENGINE_ID

Use the given engine id for the execution of runs. If this value is not defined then the default engine will be used. The Engine ID can be retrieved from the engines page in workbench or the engines list command.

--engine-params=JSON_DATA

Set the global engine parameters for all runs that are to be submitted. Engine Parameters can be defined as JSON Data and are expected to be a map of string values. The actual engine parameters are different for each configured engine.

--default-params=JSON_DATA

Specify the global default inputs as a JSON file or as inlined JSON to use when submitting multiple runs. Default inputs have the lowest level of precedence and will be overridden by any run input or override. Default params can be defined as JSON Data.

--workflow-params=JSON_DATA

Specify the workflow params for a given run, as key:value pairs, a JSON file, or inlined JSON. Additionally, the user may specify a directory that contains a list of parameters in JSON format. Each file will result in a separate run. This field may be repeated, with each repetition specifying a separate run request that will be submitted as part of a batch. Workflow params can be defined as JSON Data.

--tags=JSON_DATA

Set the global tags for all runs that are to be submitted. Tags can be defined as JSON Data.

Advanced Topics

Batching

The CLI provides a powerful interface for submitting many workflows at once with the ability to define default values and an arbitrary number of runs. In the above examples, we are submitting inputs using input overrides. The simple workflow submission can be re-written using the --workflow-params flag instead of overrides.

omics workbench runs submit \
  --url 3bce2a53-c9f1-4b3f-8024-a849e64adb97/hello-world \
  --workflow-params hello.name=Suzy,hello.greeting=Hello

Additionally, if we want to guarantee that every run has a specific value defined for hello.greeting we can mix and match the --workflow-params flag with input overrides.

omics workbench runs submit \
  --url 3bce2a53-c9f1-4b3f-8024-a849e64adb97/hello-world \
  --workflow-params hello.name=Suzy \
  hello.greeting=Hello

Now imagine you want to submit the exact same workflow for Suzy, Frank, Peggie, and Brooklyn. One way would be to submit the above command 4 different times changing the hello.name=${name}, however, this increases the boilerplate needed. A simpler approach would be to define multiple --workflow-params flags in the same command. You can specify --workflow-params as many times as you want. Each time it is specified, it will be translated into a single submitted run of the given workflow.

omics workbench runs submit \
  --url 3bce2a53-c9f1-4b3f-8024-a849e64adb97/hello-world \
  --workflow-params hello.name=Suzy \
  --workflow-params hello.name=Frank \
  --workflow-params hello.name=Peggie \
  --workflow-params hello.name=Brooklyn \
  hello.greeting=Hello

Finally, say we would like to change one of the run's greetings but keep it the same for all other runs. The above command uses an override which will fix the input value for all runs. Instead, we can use the --default-params flag to specify the default values, and then in the specific submission, we want to override it, and provide a key:value input for it.

omics workbench runs submit \
  --url 3bce2a53-c9f1-4b3f-8024-a849e64adb97/hello-world \
  --default-params hello.greeting=Hello \
  --workflow-params hello.name=Suzy \
  --workflow-params hello.name=Frank \
  --workflow-params hello.name=Peggie \
  --workflow-params hello.name=Brooklyn,hello.greeting=Goodbye

The above command sets Hello as the default greeting which will be applied to all submissions except the final one which sets the greeting to Goodbye.
