Plotting queue job report fails. Rscript can't find function 'arrow'.

I found if I add library(grid) to gatk-protected / public / R / scripts / org / broadinstitute / sting / queue / util / queueJobReport.R the error goes away.

    I have bumped into the same problem, exactly the same error. It seems the R script is not available on the GATK github anymore. Another workaround is to add 'grid' to default library list so it can be preloaded into R.

    I hope the requirements of running the Rscript (the one that produces Qscript job report, if there are other R scripts) can be described somewhere on this forum/website, although I understand this is not really a major concern.

    Hi there,

    I will put this on the documentation to-do list. To be honest this is not a priority, so it may be a while, but we will get it done eventually.
