Launchpad makes it is easy for any workspace user to launch a pre-configured pipeline.
A pipeline is a repository containing a Nextflow workflow, a compute environment and pipeline parameters.
Pipeline Parameters Form#
Launchpad automatically detects the presence of a
nextflow_schema.json in the root of the repository and dynamically creates a form where users can easily update the parameters.
The parameter forms view will appear, if the workflow has a Nextflow schema file for the parameters. Please refer the Nextflow Schema guide to learn more about the usa-cases and how to create them.
This makes it trivial for users without any expertise in Nextflow to enter their pipeline parameters and launch.
Adding a New Pipeline#
Adding a pipeline to the workspace launchpad is similar to the Launch except instead of launching the pipeline it gets added to the list of pipelines with the pre-saved values of fields such as the pipeline parameters and the revision number.
